Fiber optics are passive elements, therefore do not use power to generate light, as is the case with lamps. As light conductors only carry light from one point to another, never electricity.
Fiber optics can be put under, or in direct contact with water, can be cut, handled, broken or hammered and can never be anything but totally safe lighting conductors, with the exception of power conversion.
Because standard lighting fiber optics have a very restricted transmission window most radiation which could be harmful to beings or thing is not transmitted. In fact the amount of infrared and ultraviolet issuing from a fiber optic is, in most instances, negligible.
The use of fiber optics in the lighting of museum pieces or radiation sensitive material is one of the main applications of these light conductors.
There is, however, the phenomenon of power to light conversion on the extremes of the fibers: a very high temperature may be present, with the use of high powered illuminators, very close to the tip. If a light guide is cut, abrader or damaged in anyway along its length a very hot spot may ensue which can destroy the fiber and the surrounds. When using systems with high power densities additional precautions should be observed to maintain safety in the system.
Fiber optic star ceiling overview: fiber optic lighting is a new lighting technology, with photoelectric isolation, energy saving, environmental protection and long service life, widely used in various types of advertising, indoor and outdoor decoration, Waterscape, home, garden and road lighting etc.. Fiber lighting is widely used, because of bright color and soft, which in recent years has been the subject of many entertainment places and families of all ages.
Fiber optic star ceiling principle: Theory of fiber travels in straight lines, in practical applications, people want to change the direction of propagation of light, optical fiber based the principle of total reflection, optical fiber transmission to the path along the lighting places, so have more flexibility in the design and construction of lighting
