    Abstract: An illuminator and a display capable of achieving miniaturization are provided with use of a plurality of light sources emitting light with two or more kinds of wavelengths. In the light source unit 11, a red-color laser 11R, a green-color laser 11G, a blue-color laser 11B, a microlens section 116, and a microprism 117 are integrated on a base material. Each laser beam emitted from each of the laser light sources is transmitted through the microlens section 116, and then, comes into the microprism 117. In the microprism 117, optical path conversion is performed to shorten the distance between the optical paths of the incident light beams (to allow the optical axes of the incident light beams to be closer to each other). Due to the above-described integration, the optical paths of the laser beams are allowed to be synthesized using the microscopic-scaled microlens section and microprisms.

  • Patent number: 8845144
    Abstract: A light emitting diode (LED) driver case includes a housing, driver circuitry, an recessed area in the housing, and a luminaire disconnect. The luminaire disconnect is coupled to the recessed area in the housing and extends toward an aperture in a top plate of a LED module. The luminaire disconnect can be fixedly or removably coupled to the recessed area in the housing. When the luminaire disconnect is removably coupled to the recessed area, one or more of a number of retaining features can be used to prevent the luminaire disconnect from moving or to limit the movement of the luminaire disconnect.

  • Patent number: 8845145
    Abstract: A reflector assembly and method for installing into a collar. The reflector assembly includes a reflector, a frame surrounding and being coupled to a portion of the reflector, and one or more connectors coupled to the frame. Each connector includes a base portion coupled to the frame, a first finger, and a biasing portion. The first finger and the biasing portion extend in a generally upward direction from a portion of the base portion; however the first finger is angled away from the reflector while the biasing portion is angled toward the reflector. The biasing portion exerts a force on the side of the reflector when the first finger portion is compressed inwardly towards a side of the reflector. The reflector assembly is installed into a collar by inserting the reflector assembly into the collar and allowing first finger to compress toward the reflector and then away from it.

  • Publication number: 20140254178
    Abstract: An architectural light fixture with a mounting includes a rigid yoke with opposed mounts aligned with external cavities located on a housing. The cavities have conical inner surfaces and bottoms with fastener engagements. Yoke pins include conical outer surfaces to operate as yoke locks. Fastener associated with the yoke pins engage to draw the yoke locks into interfering fit with the truncated conical inner surface of the mounting cavity. The light fixture housing has a port with a plug of porous water repellant material. A cover is employed to protect the plug. The light fixture housing also has a flat mounting surface with a wire access hole. The fixture includes a cover to enclose a photocell biased toward the mounting surface and retains an O-ring against the fixture housing.
