Introduction
Thank you for requesting the latest version of the Visualux Designers Guide, we hope that you find it both helpful
and informative.
The staff of Visualux has been involved with the design and manufacture of products for the opto electronics and
associated industries since the early 1980’s and during this time have been responsible for designing and
supplying products to many of the major electronics companies throughout the world. We operate a policy of
continuous development and we are constantly evaluating new materials, so that our products can continue to
stay at the forefront of our industry.
Our major product lines, LED backlights and Contrast Filters, are detailed in this catalogue. Currently we are
developing a range of CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting) devices which include the lamps, drive inverters
and acrylic light guides - these are also shown in the Visualux Designers Guide. We were also involved for many
years with the Clare/Pendar range of high quality switch and indicator assemblies, which were renowned for their
quality and reliability, and have maintained a source of supply for these products directly from Europe.
If you are unable to find the information that you require in this catalogue then please contact us and we will try
our best to supply the data that you require. We would be very pleased to hear from you if you feel that the
information in this catalogue is not extensive enough or could be presented in a more ‘user friendly’ way.
Thank you again for the interest that you have shown in our products.

Styles of LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
A standard transflective LCD
A transflective LCD with a Visualux LED backlight
A negative transmissive LCD with a Visualux LED backlight
There are three main types of LCD display:
v Reflective - This type of display relies completely on reflected light (daylight or artificial light)
to be viewable - you cannot see it in the dark and it cannot be backlit.
v Transflective - This type of display can use reflected light or be backlit.
v Transmissive - This type of display can usually be viewed using reflected light or be backlit.

Visualux (edge lit) Backlights
V
isualux Backlights were primarily designed for use with transflective and transmissive LCDs but are being
used in a number of other areas that include status warning indicators and low power, long life, lighting
systems. All Visualux Backlights are supplied, unless otherwise requested, as an S-Series style backlight.
Below are descriptions of the standard options that are available.
S-Series
The ultimate Backlight, designed for applications where maximum
light output efficiency is the primary concern. Visualux Backlights
use custom designed LED emitters (fig.1) to ‘fire’ light into a cast
acrylic light guide. The S-Series uses ultra white secondary
reflectors, located on the vertical edges, to reflect light down to the
primary reflector that is located below the viewing area (fig.2). We
use ultra white spray coatings for our primary and secondary
reflectors, unlike our competitors who use a white adhesive tape
which can easily delaminate. The S-Series has been designed to
utilise all available emitted light and this results in a very low light
loss factor.
E-Series
The E-Series Visualux Backlight is manufactured to the same high
standards as the S-Series but has been designed for applications
where cost effectiveness is of more importance than light output
efficiency. Instead of ultra white secondary reflectors, the E-Series
uses the reflective properties of a precision machined edge.
SA-Series
This series of Visualux Backlights has been designed for applications that require all the benefits of the Visualux
technology but at the lowest possible price. SA-Series Backlights are supplied as two separate unassembled
components , e.g. LED emitter and light guide. The LED emitter is the same type as used in the S and E Series
Visualux Backlights and the cast acrylic light guide is of the same design as the E-Series which utilised the
reflective properties of the light guides precision machined edge but without the machined ledge for the LED
emitters.
PCB Modules
The PCB modules are either S,E or SA Series Backlights mounted on to a single sided or PTH circuit board. Apart
from the Backlight we are able to mount resistors and other devices that may be required. The major advantage
of this system is that only two leads are needed to be terminated.

Visualux (edge lit) Backlights
W
hen the Visualux Backlights are used with transflective LCDs a brilliant white reflector is usually sufficient.
However, a transmissive (transparent) LCD will benefit from using a Backlight that has a brightly
coloured primary reflector, because the LCD characters or graphics will have a contrasting background
even if the Backlight is not illuminated.
One of the major benefits of using a Visualux Backlight is the exceptionally long life span of the device, which can
be up to 100,000 hours - this is equivalent, in most cases, to the life of a typical LCD.
Visualux Backlights are available in a large range of standard sizes with a brilliant white or brightly coloured primary
reflector. The secondary reflectors of the S-Series are always brilliant white.
Customised sizes are available and the cost for the origination of S and E-Series Backlights is usually less than
£200. For this sum you will receive an engineering drawing, which is allocated its own unique data reference
number and a quantity of Backlights dependent on the complexity of the part. Delivery is usually 3 - 4 weeks from
receipt of order. For large volume usage we can also supply LED emitters made to your custom design.
Visualux operate a policy of constant development, so if you do not find the type or style of Backlight that you
require in this Designers Catalogue, please contact your local Visualux sales office to discuss your requirements.

Visualite Contrast Filters
Method A
Method B
Above are shown two preferred methods of fixing a Visualite Contrast Filter
Method A
This is the most cost effective way of fixing. The Visualite Contrast Filter is supplied as a square or rectangle and
is bonded to the underside of the front panel by using a suitable sealant or double sided gasket.
Method B
This method, although more expensive than Method A, gives a more professional and aesthetically pleasing look
to the front panel. The Visualite Contrast Filter is supplied with a machined ledge around the perimeter of the filter.
The ledge is usually between 5-10 mm wide, depending on the size of the filter, and the depth of the ledge is
usually the same as the thickness of the front panel into which it will be fitted. As with Method A, a suitable
sealant or double sided gasket should be used for fixing. A major advantage of using this method of fixing is that
the Visualite Contrast Filter will be fixed level with the top surface of the front panel thus minimising the build up of
dirt and dust in the viewing area.

VT600 Anti-reflective
VT600 Anti-reflective surface treatment process
. . . . . how would you prefer your display to look ?
VT600 anti-reflective surface treatment process is a coating developed by Visualux engineers. This surface
treatment process enables unwanted light reflections to be dissipated from the viewing surfaces of acrylic,
polycarbonate, PVC and other types of plastic display filters and panels. Unlike other ‘anti-glare’ style coatings,
VT600 has been specifically formulated to allow the forming of the display panels or filters after VT600 has
been applied and this will not result in any cracking or peeling of the coating. This is particularly useful if the
customer needs to purchase the material in sheets and then form the parts after other manufacturing
processes have been undertaken. VT600 is applied to the Visualite Contrast Filters as standard and can be
applied to ‘free issue’ mouldings and bezels. VT600 has also been applied to the front polarisers of LCDs, in
situations where a low level of light reflection is required.

Visualux CCFL Products
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting Drive Inverters
Visualux supply a large range of standard CCFL drive inverters to suit the most demanding applications. Whether
it is as a ‘one off’ replacement for an existing unit or a large production batch requirement, your orders wil be
treated with the same high degree of professionalism.
A Visualux inverter can be supplied with solder pad connections, flying
leads, or connectors - depending on the inverter type. If your product
requires a custom inverter, Visualux can usually have custom designs and
pricing available within a week. Inverter configurations already supplied by
Visualux include variable range input devices and multiple output systems.
To be sure of obtaining the maximum life from your CCFLs it is essential
to use an inverter that is matched as accurately as possible to the
characteristics of the lamp. Overdriving can result in a brighter lamp but
this will inevitably result in a much reduced lamp life.
Standard Inverters available are:
5vDC Input - Single Output
5vDC Input - Dual Output
9vDC Input - Single Output
9vDC Input - Dual Output
12vDC Input - Single Output
12vDC Input - Dual Output
24vDC Input - Single Output
24vDC Input - Dual Output
12vDC Input - Single Output (Dimming)
12vDC Input - Up to 8 lamp output with TTL On/Off and Brightness control
230vAC, 50Hz Input - Dual Output
We are constantly increasing our range of CCFL tubes and inverters please contact Visualux regularly for the latest product information.
