Crystal Fiber Optic
Swaro®Lite, by the House of Swarovski, the renowned manufacturer of Strass® crystal, combines the brilliant clarity of crystal with fiber optic lighting technology. The result is a family of optically pure lighting components: decorative Crystal Panels and Starry Sky-effect ceiling treatments and the functional Showcase and Picture Illumination systems.
The Swaro®Lite Crystal Architecture Lighting System offers remote source illumination with an unparalleled selection of high-quality functional and decorative crystal light outlet elements. High quality glass fibers carry light that is virtually free of infrared and UV. Absolutely no electricity is associated with the fibers or light outlet elements. Developed specifically for unique applications, Starfire can engineer custom illuminators. Computer controlled systems utilizing custom software is capable of providing a multitude of special effects. Convection cooled fanless illuminators allow silent operation in noise sensitive environments. Optical lenses, spots, and directional systems are available for lighting architectural environments, displays and showcases. Optical prisms are available for wall washing and highlighting.
The illuminator houses the lamp with a reflector that has been designed specifically for the Swaro®Lite system. High quality glass or PMMA fibers carry light that is virtually free of infrared and UV. Absolutely no electricity is associated with the fibers or light outlet elements.
The primary component of the Swaro®Lite illuminator is the cold light reflector. This specially designed glass reflector is constructed to obtain an extremely high surface reflection that filters out thermal radiation. Because infrared is not reflected into the fibers, the environment is illuminated with a gentle cold light.
Developed specifically for the Swaro®Lite fiber optic system, the CAD designed cold light reflector offers outstanding optical control while maintaining uniform light projection onto the input ends of the fibers. Depending on the brightness levels desired, as many as 350 independent outlets can receive light from one illuminator. For unique applications, Starfire can engineer custom illuminators usually within a budget comparable to standard equipment.
These include: Computer controlled systems utilizing custom software capable of providing a multitude of special effects, Convection cooled fanless illuminators for silent operation in noise sensitive environments, Light tight illuminators minimizing excessive light leaks from illuminator vents and DMX 512 systems for central dimmer system interfacing.
In order to maximize light transmission and color fidelity, the Swaro®Lite system utilizes only high quality optical glass fibers (PMMA fiber available, consult factory). A high degree of infrared and UV is eliminated before it reaches the illuminated environment.
Overall light values are dependent upon the length of the fibers. Attenuation is approximately 3% per meter.
Once the fibers are installed, they require no additional maintenance.
Faceted, pointed light outlets, half round and fully round spheres of perfectly cut Strass® crystal for decorative light reflections. Optical lenses, spots, and directional systems for lighting architectural environments, displays, and showcases. Optical prisms for wall-washing and highlighting. Crystal panels for constructing decorative components for use in ceilings, walls and furnishings.
