Abstract

Devices and methods for providing sensor indication and enhancing sensor indication are disclosed. In one embodiment, a sensor indication is provided by sensing an operational status at a sensor circuit, generating a signal at the sensor circuit based on the sensed operational status, utilizing the signal to activate a light source, transmitting light into a first indicator layer with the light source, wherein the first indicator layer includes a fluorophore embedded within a substrate, and wherein the one or more fluorophores modify at least one characteristic of the transmitted light from the light source, and emitting the modified transmitted light from an end wall of the first indicator layer.

Description

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a proximity sensor housing in accordance with one or more embodiments.
FIG. 2 is a front elevational view of the proximity sensor housing of FIG. 1.
FIG. 3 is a back elevational view of the proximity sensor housing of FIG. 1.
FIG. 4 is a first side view of the proximity sensor housing of FIG. 1.
FIG. 5 is a top plan view of the proximity sensor housing of FIG. 1; and,
FIG. 6 is a bottom plan view of the proximity sensor housing of FIG. 1.
The broken lines are shown in the views for illustrative purposes only, for form no part of the claimed design. The second side view is a mirror image of the first side view.
