Linear Lighting

Highlighting amenities. Achieve clarity and customization using extruded acrylic light pipe for in-vehicle and exterior illumination in areas such as instrument panel trims, map pockets, running boards and release handles.

TE’s Light Guide. TE has developed a co-extrusion process which produces an acrylic light pipe allowing for focused light and allows it to travel the length of the light pipe with intensity and uniformity. Unlike light guides made of polycarbonate, those made out of acrylic do not alter the intended color of light along the linear path being illuminated. Our unique light guide can be bent post-manufacturing, so that desired vehicle interior contours can be reproduced in a repeatable manner. In comparison to light guides created using injection molding, our extruded light guides require minimal tool costs, using less LED wattage, while allowing for very low cost engineering changes. The system can also be delivered as an "active" unit, allowing our customer to easily vary the light intensity and color.
