Harnesses


The fibre optic harness consists of a number of individual fibre tails,which terminate in a collector at one end, called a common end.


The lightsource precisely focuses high intensity light onto the common end for transmission through each individual fibre.

Fibres are randomised 8:1 (size 7 and above) to receive an equal amount of light from the light source.

At the opposite end, each tail has a ferrule termination, which can then be easily connected to a wide choice of display luminaires (end glow). Or in the case of sparkleflex it is heat sealed.

The common end is a 30 or 40mm termination for direct placement into a suitable lightsource. Flexion’s in house extrusion is able to cater for different tail sizes to produce harnesses to customer’s specific requirements.

All harnesses are coated with megolon, a halogen free,fire retardent & low smoke sheathing material.
