Ease of Maintenance
Periodically replacing a single light bulb at a single source is all that is required. The cable is made of durable, UV protected DMMA plastic. There is nothing to break or burn out. There is no heat transmitted by the cable so it can be used to light combustible materials.
Because it carries no electricity, it can be used near, or even in, water and there are no glass tubes or lamps to break. The cable is unbreakable, shockproof and waterproof.
With the use of side emitting cable, a neon light look can be achieved over long distances at a fraction of the cost. Fiber optic lighting can have the look of neon lighting but it can change color, dim or even mimic movement while using far fewer components and much less maintenance. This can be done from illuminators that have an operating draw of only .75 amps (about what a 60W bulb uses) for the 75 watt quartz halogen unit or 1.8 amps for the 150 watt metal halide unit. Also, there is only one bulb to replace, and this has a life span of 10,000 hours!
Fiber optic systems are designed for the do-it-yourselfer homeowner or business owner. Just lay the cable, screw the port with the cable end installed into the illuminator and plug the illuminator into a 110V outlet. Thatís it!
A constantly rotating color wheel produces 5 to 8 spectacular colors. These mood lights may also be set at one color depending on the occasion (green for St. Patricks Day or red for Christmas). With the use of a DMX controller, you can program light shows or pick which colors you wish to view in any sequence of your choosing.
