Horizontal light pipes

Foremost Electronics is offering its UK customers a range of MENTOR light guide/light pipes.

MENTOR Light Pipes/Light Guides are precision optics that are designed to precisely manage the light emitted from LEDs.

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 are on offer.

Round, square and rectangular element versions are all available. MENTOR claims there is no light bleed, even when different colours are adjacent.

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. Length is 2.8mm as standard, but infinite length variations can be supplied up to 15mm.
