DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION



[0035] Specific embodiments of the present invention will be further described in detail below based on the drawings. It should be understood that the description of the embodiments herein is not intended to limit the scope of the invention.

Embodiment 1



[0036] As shown in FIG.1 to 6, the line source lighting system of the present embodiment comprises lamp holder 100, printed circuit board 200, a plurality of point light sources 300, lens 400 and strip-shaped convex lens array 500 and reflection wall 600.

[0037] The lamp holder 100 is used for fixing and mounting, and can be assembled by a plurality of components according to installation requirements, or can be a single component. In this embodiment, the lamp holder 100 comprises two end seats 101, a strip base 102 and a strip bed plate 103. Wherein, the strip base 102 is arranged at the bottom as a part of the lamp holder and is generally made of aluminum alloy for fixing installation and heat dissipation, the strip bed plate 103 is arranged above the strip base 102 for mounting printed circuit board 200 and other structures, in the actual assembly, the strip bed plate 103 can be set separately, in order to reduce the volume and make the structure compact, it can also be connected to the strip base 102 after forming with the lens 400, Or it can be formed in one piece with the strip base 102.However, the strip base 102, lens 400 and strip bed plate 103 are separately arranged in this embodiment. Both ends of the strip base 102 are fixedly connected to the end seats 101. The strip base 102 is provided with a cavity for accommodating the printed circuit board 200, the lens 400, and the reflection wall 600.The printed circuit board 200, the lens 400 and the reflection wall 600 can be fixed by screws, glue and clasp structure. In this embodiment, the two ends of the strip base 102 are connected with the end seat 101 to form a first accommodating cavity 108. The strip bed plate 103 is located at the bottom of the first accommodating cavity 108, and the strip bed plate 103 is connected with the end seat to form a second accommodating cavity 109. The second accommodating cavity 109 is provided for accommodating the printed circuit board 200 and the reflection wall 600. The reflection wall 600 is located above the printed circuit board and on either side of the point light source. The inner side of the upper end of the strip base 102 is provided with a first mounting groove 105. The outer side of the reflection wall 600 is provided with a convex edge 601 matching with the first mounting groove 105. The strip-shaped convex lens array 500 is arranged on the top end of the reflection wall 600, and the Lens 400 fits with the strip base 102 by clamping.

[0038] A plurality of point light sources 300 are spaced apart from each other along the length direction of the lamp holder on the light source mounting surface of the printed circuit board 200. Thus, the visual effect of the discontinuous point light source is formed. In the background of energy saving and environmental protection, the LED lamp is more and more applied to the home and commercial lighting field due to its high light extraction efficiency and good light collecting performance, and the point light source 300 is adopted LED chip.

[0039] In this embodiment, the optical axis direction of the point light source 300 is set as the z direction, and the mounting surface of the point light source 300 is a plane perpendicular to the z direction. On the mounting surface, the point light source 300 is arranged in the x direction, and y direction is perpendicular to the x direction. The printed circuit board 200 is also disposed on the mounting surface, and the xyz coordinate system can define an x-y plane, a y-z plane, and an x-z plane.

[0040] The lens 400 is disposed on the lamp holder 100, and the number thereof can be set according to the light distribution effect to be achieved, and can be one or more. In general, a single lens can complete the light distribution effect that needs to be achieved, specifically, the lens 400 is connected with the strip base 102 by clasping and located in a light-emitting direction of the point light source 300 for adjusting the light distribution of the point light source 300 on the plane (y-z plane) perpendicular to the length direction of the lamp holder, that is, the dimming in a single plane, and the lens 400 can be easily manufactured by extrusion process or other ways. Since the light distribution of the LED chip itself is not uniform, this causes the linear light source imaged by the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 to have a region with strong brightness and weak brightness. It is easy to understand that the less luminous areas emitted light with less energy, while the more luminous areas emitted light with more energy. In order to make the final emergent light evenly distributed, the lens 400 preferably adopts an asymmetric lens, and the light in the weak brightness region of the linear light source is emitted from the part of the asymmetric lens that has a strong ability to focus light, while the light in the strong brightness region is emitted from the part of the asymmetric lens that has a weak ability to focus light, in this way, the consistent effect of the emergent light can be reasonably achieved. However, this does not mean that the lens 400 can only adopt an asymmetrical form, and a symmetrical form can also be used. In this case, the brightness of the two ends of the linear light source is brighter, and the brightness toward the middle position is weaker. When a symmetrical lens is used, the middle protruding portion of the lens 400 corresponds to the middle position of the linear light source, and both ends correspond to both ends of the linear light source, so that the light can be uniform. Additionally, the lens 400 can also take the form of an optical film. When the lens 400 is an optical film, the lens 400 and the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 are integrated on the same optical film, and the optical film stretches the point light source into a line source in the x direction, and performs light distribution control on the point light source in the y-z plane.

[0041] The strip-shaped convex lens array 500 is disposed on the lamp holder 100 and located between the lens 400 and the printed circuit board 200. The strip-shaped convex lens array 500 is arranged along the length direction of the lamp holder 100 for converting each point light source 300 into a plurality of continuous sub-point light sources, the sub-point light sources converted by the adjacent point source 300 is connected or coincident. It can be seen that before using the strip-shaped convex lens array 500, the point light sources 300 are still point light sources after passing through the lens 400 and become linear light sources while adding the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 they, as shown in FIG.2.

[0042] The strip-shaped convex lens in the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 can be in the form of a plane of a positive cylindrical lens, or can be a curved surface curved in the length direction of the strip-shaped convex lens, and the effect to be achieved is that the point light source is stretched in the arrangement direction (x direction) of the point light source, so that the point light source forms the line light source while minimizing or eliminating the influence on the point source 300 in other directions. The cross-sectional dimension of the strip-shaped convex lens can be set as needed, and the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 can be obtained by a process such as 3D printing, extrusion or injection molding. The distance between the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 and the point light source 300 and the distance between the adjacent point light sources 300 are controlled by adjusting the radian and radius of the strip-shaped convex lens. The strip-shaped convex lens array 500 can also achieve the same effect by using optical film. In the embodiment, the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 is a positive cylindrical lens microarray arranged on the optical thin film, specifically, the optical film is an elliptical light diffusing film, and the model used is E-6010. Of course, other models can be selected as long as the point light source 300 is stretched in the arrangement direction (x direction) of the point light source 300. For example, E-1560, E-0160/6001, E-0190 can also be used. In order to achieve a better tensile diffusion effect, when the diffusion film is selected, the stretching ratio in both directions is greater than 4. In the present embodiment, the elliptical light diffusing film is a positive cylindrical lens microarray, the length direction of the positive cylindrical lens is perpendicular to the arrangement direction (x direction) of the point light source 300 when used. The strip-shaped convex lens array 500 in the form of film has a small volume, is easy to install, and can be bent to meet different lamp structure requirements.

[0043] In order to further improve the light utilization rate of the LED light fixture, on the plane perpendicular to the length direction of the LED light fixture, the reflection wall 600 is provided on both sides of the point light source 300 for reflecting the lateral light from the point light source 300 to the light incident plane of the strip-shaped convex lens array 500. Of course, the absence of the reflection wall 600 does not affect the use of the LED lighting system, that is, the reflection wall 600 is not an essential functional component, the upper end of the reflection wall 600 extends to the bottom surface of the strip-shaped convex lens array 500, and the point light source 300 is disposed on the printed circuit board 200, most of the light is emitted toward the strip-shaped convex lens array 500, but a small portion of the lateral light is deflected away from the main beam and directed to other directions, and such light is often not utilized, so that the effective utilization rate of the light is reduced, which is a common problem in which the light source emits radiation in a radial manner. When the above design is adopted, it can make good use of the reflection effect to direct the deviated lateral light to the strip-shaped convex lens array 500, thereby concentrating the light beam, and the luminous flux which is truly formed by the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 per unit area is more. Moreover, it improves the effective utilization of light, and reduces the number of point light sources 300 to reduce costs.

[0044] At the same time, in order to guide the deflecting light to the direction of the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 as much as possible, according to the light propagation path and the light radiation angle principle of the point light source 300, in the embodiment, the reflection wall 600 and the printed circuit board 200 is disposed at an obtuse angle, and the specific angle is adjusted according to the distance between the point light source 300 and the strip-shaped convex lens array 500.

[0046] In this embodiment, the lens 400, the reflection wall 600 and the strip bed plate 103 are integrally formed and enclosed to form an mounting cavity 104. Extrusion process can be used for integral forming. The lens 400 adopts a symmetrical lens and has a radian change on both the inside and outside surfaces, which is easier to manufacture. In the mounting cavity 104, a first mounting groove 105 for fixing the strip-shaped convex lens array 500 is disposed near the lens 400, and the bottom portion of the mounting cavity 104 is provided a second mounting groove 106 for fixing the printed circuit board 200, the side wall between the first mounting groove 105 and the second mounting groove 106 is the reflection wall 600, and the reflection wall 600 is of the arc structure, so that the reflection angle is smaller and the efficiency is higher.

[0047] The strip base 102 is made of metal with better heat dissipation effect, and is provided with a curved mounting groove 107 for fixing the strip bed plate 103. The bottom surface of the strip bed plate 103 is a curved surface that fits the curved mounting groove 107, thereby improving the heat dissipation effect.

[0048] The strip-shaped convex lens array 500 of the present embodiment also employs an elliptical light diffusing film, and both sides in the width direction are inserted into the first mounting groove 105 for assembly.

[0050] In this embodiment, the reflection wall 600 and the strip bed plate 103 are integrally formed.
