Hybrid Solar Fiber Optic Lighting System 
 
Hybrid Solar Lighting with tracking distributes natural light within the interior of buildings and is fully intergrated into the existing artificial lighting systems.
 
Therefore, Hybrid Solar Lighting delivers the benifits of the natural lighting with the convenience and reliability of artifical light.
 
Independent studies show that natural light increases retail sales, reduces energy consumption, and improves employee productivity and wellness.

Sustainable Features
Parans 
 
 
Parans Fiber Optic Skylight is a unique way to bring natural light deep into a building where it was not previously possible.
 
This allows for the electric lights to be turned off during the day, which results in lower lighting bills and less energy demand.
 
Natural light has also been attributed to increased productivity, increased morale, better test scores and increased retail sales.
 
The system is comprised of an exterior daylight collecting panel which has 64 Fresnel lenses on the inside.
 
Theses lenses rotate to track the sun automatically, controlled by an internal computer.
 
Each lens acts like a magnifying lens to focus the sunlight.
 
This focused sunlight is directed into a fiber optic strand, each individual strand is combined with other strands to create a fiber optic cable.
 
There are four fiber optic cables coming out of each panel. Each of these cables can be up to 60 feet long.
 
These cables can be routed through walls and ceilings and bent around obstructions.
 
Each fiber optic cable can be used  to bring the natural light to a different interior fixture or they can be combined in one fixture.
 
There are a variety of fixtures available, some of which combine the natural light and electric light into a hybrid fixture.
 
The hybrid fixture can be combined with a sensor that will automatically turn the electric lights off when the natural light is sufficient.

SolarPoint
 
SolarPoint Lighting distributes natural light within the interior of the building and is fully intergrated into the existing artificial ligting sysytem.
 
Thus, SolarPoint Lighting delivers the benefits of natural lighting with the convenience and reliability of artificial light.
 
Independent studies show that natural light increases retail sales, reduces energy consumption, and improves employee productivity and wellness.
 

The Solar Point Lighting System, also called hybrid solar lighting, consists of a roof mounted SolarPoint Platform, a 45' long plastic fiber optic bundle, and a number of special "hybrid" luminaires.
 
The technology concentrates natural sunlight into a small bundle of optical fibers that "pipe" sunlight directly into a building or enclosure.
 
Special lighting fixtures called hybrid luminaires diffuse light throughout the space, delivering up to 25,000 peak lumens.
 
The hybrid luminaires blend the natural light with existing artificial lighting to provide controllable interior lighting.
 
As sunlight levels increase and decrease, a daylight harvesting controller automatically increases or decreases the co-located artificial lighting proportionally, providing significant energy savings during daylight hours.
 
With nearly 80 installations in various environments and uses across the country, putting the systems through nearly one million hours of in-the-field testing.
 
 
Himawari

Sunlight collection at maximum efficiency with a system-lens focusing and optical fiber transmission
 

The Himawari system consists of a lens focusing unit and optical fiber devices. Its outdoor collector can collect sunlight always at maximum efficiency and transmit it through optical fibers to anywhere you want. Unlike conventional solar lighting systems which uses skylights and mirrors, stable daylighting is possible all day long without suffering constraints imposed by room location, window orientation, and solar altitude.
 
In order to accurately track the sun as it continuously changes its position from sunrise to suset, Himawari is equipped with an automatic tracking system. A solar sensor and clock mechanism control the movement of the light focusing lens so that it is always accurately aimed at the sun. Even when clouds block out the sun, the system can respond speedily to changes in the weather
 
 
 
Ultraviolet-free, so it's light gentle on the eyes and the skin
 
High-quality sunlight is what the Himawari System provides. The tone of the light is natural and gentle on the eyes, qualities that can not be reproduced by any artificial illumination.
 
By using acrylic dome covering the lense and chromatic aberration through single lens focusing, the sun's UV can be eliminated. Therefore, the light consists predominantly of visible rays, a kind of light that is best suited for promoting photosynthesis in plants.
 
Since the Himawari system screens out ultraviolet rays, it protects furniture and carpets from colar fading.
 
High-Purity Optical Fiber Enabling Flexible Transmission Of Sunlight
 
Collected sunlight passes through optical fibers which transmit visible ray-dominated sunlight. Optical fibers are so thin and flexible that they can freely transmit light to rooms in any building, wheather old or new.
 
Energy Saving & Maintenance-Free
 
 By using an energy saving type system that is powered by solar cells, you can reduce your electricty cost
 
Once the Himawari System is installed, it operates automatically without any need for manual operation. Since the precision collector is covered with acrylic dome, daylighting is stable over a long duration, and free from the effects of rainand dust
