Advanced Illumination - BL2 Series High Intensity Back-lit Backlights

  • The BL2 Series provides a highly uniform and high intensity, diffuse backlight source, primarily used for creating object silhouettes of high contrast or imaging through semi-translucent materials.
  • BL2 Backlights are pre-engineered for scalability, allowing for size configurations in 1″ increments up to 46″ in length and width.
  • This Backlight series is offered in 5 wavelength options and can be configured with either a polarization or collimation film.
  • As with all Advanced illumination products, this series is built for tailorability while still maintaining a standard lead time of one to three weeks.
  • Each side of a BL2 is equiped with M6 nut channels, allowing for quick and easy mounting. This series comes with our LB111 Mounting Brackets.
