Lumitron has been designing and building best-in-class, light emitting diodes (LEDs) and LED assemblies as well as subminiature incandescent lamps and assemblies for aerospace and defense manufacturers for over 35 years. We have a long history of field-proven performance. And because of our history and experience in this demanding field we can often produce off-the-shelf solutions to otherwise frustrating lighting problems. We specialize in night vision imaging system (NVIS) compliant and night vision goggle (NVG) compatible light sources and optical filters. We offer innovation and support of lighting components for illuminated displays, AMLCDs, panels, switches, keyboards, and more. Much more.
What We Do
A Large Inventory of Mil-Spec Lamps
Lumitron offers a large inventory of commercial and military specification-type lamps such as MS24515, MS3338, MS90451, MS90452, MS24367, MS27571, MS25237 commonly used in integrally illuminated panels and instruments.
Night Vision Compatible Lighting Components
We also carry a full line of Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible lighting components. Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) filters, lamps and LEDs in various sizes and colors, including NVIS Green A, Green B, White, Yellow and Red, which allow night vision compatibility of instruments, panels, keyboards, switches, annunciators, active matrix liquid crystal displays (AMLCD’s), and other illuminated devices.
Night Vision Supplemental Devices
We also offer night vision supplemental devices such as our Infra Red (IR) Filter Hood that transforms a standard flashlight into a covert IR illuminator, and various NVIS compliant filter hoods for both incandescent and LED flashlights.
Lumitron PolyVision is an NVG Compatible – NVIS compliant high temperature polymeric (HTP) optical filter material engineered specifically for filtering various light sources for NVIS compliance. PolyVision allows for greater design flexibility and shorter lead times while meeting fully compliant NVIS lighting requirements.
Solid State Light Emitting Diodes
In addition, we offer both surface mount and lamp type Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). Reliable and energy efficient solid state LEDs have evolved to the point where they are now an attractive choice for many applications that were once the domain of incandescent lamps. These include indication, backlighting pushbuttons, panel overlays, AMLCD displays, and general illumination.
Custom CNC Filter Machining
Precision in-house machining of PolyVision optical filters eliminates many of the constraints of glass fabrication or injection molding and allows for virtually infinite design flexibility with no significant tooling cost.
Some of the things we offer:
1. Design and assembly of lighting components to commercial and military specifications
2. NVIS optical filters for both subminiature incandescent lamps and LEDs, as well as flat panel filters
3. Glass and polymeric NVIS filters in various finishes
4. Color coating
5. Light testing and measurement services
6. CNC machining and lathing
7. Assembly services
8. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and incandescent upgrade replacement lamps
