  • Patent number: 10323820
    Abstract: A lens component disperses light from a source having a distribution characteristic in which luminosity becomes smaller according to distance from the optical axis. The component includes an incidence portion at a source position struck by light from the source and guiding portions branching from the incidence portion and extending radially from the source position. Each guiding portion includes a basal end portion joined to the incidence portion, emission end portion emitting light away from the source, and reflection surface guiding light that struck the basal end portion while performing internal reflection. The incidence portion and guiding portions form a light distribution structure arranged so that a ratio of luminosity in a direction making a predetermined angle with the optical axis with respect to luminosity in the axial direction in light emitted from the structure is larger than a corresponding ratio in the source's distribution characteristic.

  • Patent number: 10295381
    Abstract: An indicator has an optical member including a protuberance formed on a front side and an indentation formed on a back side of the optical member in which the indentation is smaller than the protuberance in terms of a projection area and in which the front-side protuberance fits into the opening in a front face of the housing; and an LED light source disposed opposite the back-side indentation of the optical member. A center axis of the front-side protuberance and a center axis of the backs-side indentation are in line with an optical axis of the LED light source. Light originating from the LED light source passes through the back-side indentation and the front-side protuberance, exiting from the opening in the front face of the housing. Thereby, only the center of the rectangular opening looks lighting up brightly, rectangularly.
