TactoTek introduces IMSE LightChannels, a light platform that revolutionises lighting performance.

With its advanced programmable light structures, IMSE LightChannels is a transformative solution for illumination features that inform, delight, and guide interaction.

IMSE LightChannels is built using sources of injected light. It controls light along injection molded channels to create stunning light zones with superior light output, uniformity, and color mixing while eliminating unwanted light bleed. Like all IMSE solutions, IMSE LightChannels structures are extremely thin, eliminate air gaps, and simplify construction.

In addition to its superior light performance, IMSE LightChannels also offers significant cost advantages over traditional electronics and smart surface construction techniques by optimising BoM and eliminating separate illumination structures. It's a versatile platform that can scale to different market segments that require dense, clear light-based HMIs.

“What TactoTek has achieved with IMSE LightChannels is already resonating with many automotive OEMs,” said Michael Höfgen, CEO of Lightworks “achieving bright, even illumination while controlling unwanted light travel is often very difficult and can require very complex structures. IMSE LightChannels achieves these results in a solution that’s elegant in its simplicity and economy.”

“IMSE LightChannels is part of our Let Light Live strategy. We are bringing our newer platforms that can create programmable interfaces with light features that indicate, inform, and interact, exploring new ways of connecting with the users. With IMSE technology, these structures can be thin and simple, and because it enhances sustainability, the technology enables designers to freely create surfaces that are both smart and sustainable,” stated Karthikesh Raju, SVP Product Management and Marketing at TactoTek.  

IMSE LightChannels platform supports up to seven different types of dynamic and static illumination features, including closely-spaced illuminated icons, text and emblems, light lines, and illuminated surfaces, along with durable, application-specific mounting features.

Don't miss out on this game-changing technology! The IMSE LightChannels platform will be included in the February 2023 release of IMSE Designer, which is part of TactoTek’s offering to its licensees. This platform will be continuously updated to enable a wide range of applications using innovations for user interfaces differentiated with light.
