Fremont, Calif. Elma Electronic offers light pipes for front panel enclosure applications in a variety of colors. The LEDs transfer light to the front panel with a translucent and intense coloration and can emit light even when embedded deeper within a panel.
The variable light guides are available in protruding styles or versions that are mounted flush with the front panel. They also have a chamfered light coupling area, which allows other LEDs to emit light perpendicular to the circuit board. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) resistance for the light pipes reaches 10 kV at a length of 4.5 mm and increases by approximately 1 kV per additional mm of length.
The light pipes come in 1 to 10 wide options. Various combinations of single, dual, vertical, and horizontal configurations are available. Customization is available.
The light pipes are priced at approximately $0.20 each in production quantity volumes, depending on configuration. The lead time is four weeks ARO.
