MENTOR Flexible light guide / light pipe systems provide an elegant and cost-efficient solution for many opto-electronic design challenges, including a minor design change during a product mid-life-cycle face-lift. Popular versions are designed for use with SMD TOP LEDS. Light guides push-fit into a Polycarbonate housing that is mounted on the pcb with two press-in lugs. As standard, a transparent lens is supplied for use at the visible end. Alternative coloured lenses are available, as are custom lengths. Devices are available for SMD and THT LEDs with 1000 μm, 2000 μm and 3000 μm fibres.
