Quantaflex ELTM Design Guide
Minimum Borders Required
A) Bus Bars
On those edges where a Bus Bar is required there is a minimum border from the edge of the part to the beginning of lit area of 0.090" (2.2 mm)
On those edges where no bus bar is required and on all internal cutouts, there is a minimum border from the edge of the part to the beginning of lit area of 0.045" (1.1 mm).
C) Clear Areas
When it is required that an area internal to the lit area be clear, there is a minimum border from the edge of the clear area to the beginning of lit area of: 0.025" (0.6 mm). This type of design is used most commonly when an E.L./LED combination is used. The required clear areas must be specified on all prints.
