  3. 3. Who is Spectra-Strip? Spectra-Strip, located in Hamden CT, is a cable division of $3.2BB worldwide interconnect leader Amphenol Inc. www.amphenol.com www.spectra-strip.com www.tapelites.com Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©
  4. 4. What is TapeLite ® ?? TapeLite is a new, unique, rugged, totally passive optical lighting flat cable technology…. from .5 inches (12.7 mm) up to 3.6 inches wide (91.4 mm) TapeLite carries no electricity… thus no bulbs to burn out or electro- luminescence to degrade….ever! TapeLite is driven (illuminated) by RGB LED, metal halide, or quartz halogen illuminators Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©
  5. 5. Construction Overview Twisted fibers cause fiber’s maximum light acceptance angle to be violated, thus light leaks out at the fiber bends Parallel sections of fiber at the cable ends are provided to allow maximum effective light launch into cable, and also to provide a convenient “cable tail” for routing to the illuminator Parallel sections can be a maximum of 20 ft (6.1 m) Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©
  6. 6. Construction Overview Materials: 1mm PMMA plastic optical fiber (POF) Highly reflective polyester / PVC laminates Standard width 3.0 inches (76.2 mm) .5 inches (12.7mm) up to 3.6 inches wide (91.4 mm) also available Clear PVC extruded jackets available, flame retardant, UV / Fungus resistant Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©

TapeLite System Components TapeLite Cable, available either as: Bulk cable, terminate on site Factory terminated cable assemblies Lexan / Polycarbonate mounting track Polished ferrule terminations (critical for optical quality and long life) Illuminators Computer programmable white or RGB LED Quartz halogen with color wheel Metal halide with color wheel Note: We optimize the illuminator and ferrule that is RIGHT for the job, not just one we make !

  15. 15. 100 ft (30.5m), 3 inch (76.2mm) wide TapeLite, driven by one 150 Watt metal halide, looped into one port One side of TapeLite is reflective, the other side is clear, thus one side is brighter than the other Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©

  17. 17. Why TapeLite technology is clearly superior: Twisted fibers are laminated to reflective films…. this creates a much broader surface area for light to reflect from, thus emitting more light. Parallel fibers at the cable ends provide for a very effective light launch into the cable. They also provide for a very high fiber density in the fiber port.

  37. 37. Application Recommendations Maximum length: With 150 Watt Metal Halide: 110 ft (33.5 m) with 150 watt metal halide illuminator on each end (includes 5 ft (1.52 m) tails on each end 45 ft (13.7 m) driven on one end with reflector other end (includes 5 ft (1.52 m) tail on one end With LED Illuminators: 60 ft (18.3 m) driven both ends (includes 5 ft (1.52 m) tails on each end 25 ft (7.6 m) driven on one end with reflector other end (includes 5 ft (1.52 m) tail on one end When driving from one end, always use a reflector Minimum bend radius: 3 inches (76.2 mm) Right angle bends: Fold the cable with a loop, then cross over the cable at a right angle. Mask the loop Outdoor cables: Should use PVC jacket with UV and fungus resistance, or TapeLite Snap Track Tail length: maximum is 20 ft (6.09 m) Keep as short as possible to minimize light loss Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©
  38. 38. Why design with a TapeLite System? TapeLite provides a way to differentiate your design with unique lighting. TapeLite strips can be scaled up to cover large surface areas with dramatic results. Color changes “move” across the cable, providing unique visual interest with illuminators equipped with color wheels TapeLite is intrinsically safe. No electricity in the cable, so you can install it under water ! TapeLite is a “green” technology. A 50 ft length driven by two LED illuminators uses only 1.0 watts per foot Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©
  39. 39. Why design with a TapeLite System? Power source is remotely located from the light. No bulbs to burn out. Less maintenance costs. Compatible will all illuminator types: RGB LED, quartz halogen or metal halide. Almost infinite possibilities for different colors, dimming, and programmable special effects. Variety of UV resistant, rust proof mounting methods. Amphenol Spectra-Strip En-Lite-en-ment starts here ©
