  • Patent number: 9874662
    Abstract: An illumination device includes a light source, a device body to which the light source is mounted, and an optical member configured to control light distribution of light emitted from the light source. The light source includes LEDs arranged in a matrix form or a linear form. The optical member includes a lens portion configured to control light distribution of the LEDs on a row-by-row basis. The lens portion includes a recessed incidence portion on which the light emitted from the LEDs is incident, an elongated emission portion opposite to the incidence portion, and a pair of reflection portions which interconnects the incidence portion and the emission portion along a longitudinal direction thereof and totally reflects the light incident from the incidence portion. The emission portion is formed to have a plurality of successive convex surfaces when seen in a cross section taken along the longitudinal direction thereof.

  • Patent number: 9856021
    Abstract: An elongated lighting apparatus includes: a light source (linear light source); and an elongated optical component which transmits light emitted from the light source. The optical component has an elongated entrance surface where the light from the light source enters and an elongated exit surface where the light which has entered the entrance surface exits. The optical component includes light diffusers. Among the light diffusers, at least one of light diffusers disposed near a first end of the optical component diffuses the light from the light source, toward the first end side of the optical component more widely than (i) light diffusers disposed near a second end of the optical component do or (ii) light diffusers disposed near the center of the optical component do. The first and second ends, and the center of the optical component are in the longitudinal direction of the optical component.

  • Patent number: 9849984
    Abstract: A lighting apparatus includes a plurality of LEDs arranged in a row on an elongated wiring board; and a lens covering all the LEDs and controlling distribution of light emitted from each LED. An optical axis of the light emitted from each LED is orthogonal to the wiring board. The lens has a light emitting surface that controls distribution of the light emitted from each LED. When the light emitting surface is divided into at least three regions, the lens performs light distribution such that light radiated from a region is distributed in a direction tilted with respect to the optical axis of the light emitted from the LED. Thus, asymmetric distribution of light is achieved when the optical axis of the light from the LED is the axis of symmetry, and further, the luminous flux in the direction tilted with respect to the optical axis is increased most.
