Abstract: To provide a light source assembly that does not use a printed circuit board and can be manufactured at a low cost even when produced in small quantities, a light source assembly according to the present invention comprises a plurality of light sources and a connective conductor structure extending in a direction of arrangement of the light sources to join the light sources, wherein the connective conductor structure is formed by cutting off parts of a substantially plate-like patterned conductor as required, the patterned conductor being provided with a prescribed pattern. Thus, by changing the parts to be cut off in the patterned conductor, it is possible to manufacture light source assemblies having various light source connection patterns in a single manufacturing line, allowing efficient and low cost manufacture of the light source assemblies to be achieved even when the light sources are manufactured in small quantities.
Abstract: The present invention provides a light emitting module, comprising: a plurality of thin plate-shaped conductors (2) spaced apart from each other in a first direction; at least one light source (4) connected between at least one pair of adjoining ones of said conductors; and at least one insulating joint member (4) for mechanically joining said plurality of conductors, wherein said at least one insulating joint member exposes both sides of at least a portion of said conductors where said light source is mounted.
Abstract: An illumination system of the invention comprises: a first illumination unit comprising a pair of power supply contacts for connection to a commercial AC power source, a light source connected between the pair of power supply contacts, a control circuit connected in series to the light source to control electric current flowing through the light source, and a connection cord connected to the light source; and a second illumination unit comprising a light source and a connection cord connected to the light source, wherein the connection cord of the first illumination unit and the connection cord of the second illumination unit are connected to each other so that the light source of the first illumination unit and the light source of the second illumination unit are connected in parallel to each other.
Abstract: A light emitting device (1) includes a tubular light emitter (11) and a pair of caps (14) disposed at both ends of the tubular light emitter. Each cap (14) includes a contact (24) and a pair of catching arms (27) both which of which project from the cap body (22) at approximately a right angle to the tube axis of the cap body (22). During assembly, catching arms (27) serve to protect contact (24) from damage and securely attach each cap (14) to the tubular light emitter. Each cap (14) includes a partition wall with a hole (30) connecting a conductive element (21) to contacts (24). The light emitter (11) may include a tube (12) containing one or more light elements (15) joined by wires (16) additionally operating as positioning elements (20). The socket (2) may include one or more groves for gaskets (42) providing a waterproof light emitter (11).
