Horizontal light pipes manage LED brilliance

MENTOR horizontal pcb-mounted light guides/light pipes precisely manage the light emitted from powerful LEDs. Devices are used in applications that call for light to be emitted from a panel that is positioned at right angles to the circuit board. Products are available in classic Ø3mm element versions for the 5.08mm grid and miniaturised Ø2mm versions for the 2.54mm grid, as well as hybrid combinations of the two types. Round, square and rectangular element versions are all available. Featuring 4-rows as standard, versions between 2 and 10 columns are available, allowing a maximum of 40 elements and pcb mounting is via press-in lugs.
