How optical fiber lighting system can benefit indoor workers

by Dr. Alfredo Hane Jr.

An optical fiber lighting system consists of thin and long optical fibers that are about the diameter of a human hair. Different strands are arranged in bundles known as optical cables. These are used to transmit light signals over long distances. The light signals are encoded with data. Fiber optic cables are protected by armor and sheathing makes them resistant to harsh climatic conditions. They are widely used in government offices, commercial centers, and industries. One of the best parts is that an optical fiber lighting system can benefit indoor workers as it is an affordable and great source of light.

Parans’ optical fiber lighting system

Most people think that natural light is more stimulating and pleasant than electric light, but Paran’s optical fiber lighting system will change their mind. It lets sunlight enter a building through specially designed windows. At the same time, you can turn on the electric lights of your choice to brighten the entire room and to do your work without any problem. In a commercial center or building where a sustainable and healthy environment is needed, Parans provides the best services with their innovative optical fiber lighting system. Special sun collectors are used along with low intrusion fiber optic cables.

Common Fiber Optic Cable Types

Companies like Parans use three types of fiber optic cables: single-mode fiber optic cable, plastic optical fiber and multimode optical fiber. Single-mode fiber has a diameter of 9 microns. It lets one wavelength of light to travel and decreases reflections. Multimode optical fiber is known to have a larger core diameter than a single-mode fiber optic cable. It allows multiple wavelengths of light to transmit. The plastic optical fiber (POF) has a diameter of 1mm or more. Due to its large size, this type of optical fiber can couple light from multiple sources that don’t require high precision.
