Case Study

Control modules for outdoor solar panel installations

Application Characteristics

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.

Light Modeling Software

Result & Benefits

VCC’s light pipe design delivered a 360 degree viewing angle from the sides while maintaining the same ┬ámechanical interface as the original design.

Optically clear 3D printed samples assured proof of concept before tooling was initiated
