Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2016095184A1] A light module assembly (100) includes a lens (104), a circuit board (200), and an overmold body (102). The lens (104) includes one or more pooling structures (218, 220) formed by transversely oriented exterior surfaces (402, 404) of the lens (104). The circuit board (200) is coupled to the lens (104) and has one or more light-generating devices (106) disposed on the circuit board (200). The overmold body (102) is coupled to the lens (104) to form an interface (214) between the lens (104) and the overmold body (102). The interface (214) between the lens (104) and the ovemold body (102) includes or defines moisture ingress path (216) into the circuit board (200). The one or more pooling structures (218, 220) prevent passage of moisture along the moisture ingress path (216) past the one or more pooling structures (218, 220) to the circuit board (200).
