Control modules for outdoor solar panel installations
The customer was using a light pipe design that was poorly suited for the required light performance – it had minimal illumination from the side which caused issues for technicians in the field.
Light Modeling Provided
Using sophisticated light modeling software to simulate the light pipe’s performance, VCC validated that the redesigned lightpipe met the customer’s needs before tooling the project.
Result & Benefits
VCC’s light pipe design delivered a 360 degree viewing angle from the sides while maintaining the same mechanical interface as the original design.
Optically clear 3D printed samples assured proof of concept before tooling was initiated
- Fast turnaround for design and prototype
- Optimize design performance
- Cost effective-project-based cots versus fixed overhead
VCC’s value-added service team can modify our standard illuminated components or design a fully custom solution in accordance with our customers mechanical, electrical, and optical needs.
