If you’re planning to install fibre optic lighting in your home or business premises, give a lot of thought to the fibre optic illuminator. This is the heart of any fibre optic lighting system as it’s the component that actually creates the light that the cable carries to the point of illumination.
Also known as light projectors or light sources, illuminators feature a range of light sources including incandescent lamps, usually halogen, or gas discharge lamps. Halogen units are cheaper and more compact but produce less overall light. Gas discharge is more powerful and used when special effects or decoration is needed.
Multiple light points can be connected to one illuminator, which makes for a flexible system that’s very energy efficient. It’s also safe as no heat or electricity is carried to the illumination points. The fibre cable carries only light.
To light up your garden, deck, patio or poolside, you can get weatherproof fibre optic illuminators. This allows you to place it much closer to the point of illumination and not worry about damage from rain or pool water. The fibre optic lights will then imbue your swimming pool with an enchanting glow.
