Fremont, Calif. Elma Electronic has introduced a new series of LED lightpipes that provide distinct color output and optional barriers that prevent color mixing from adjacent rows.
The LED lightpipes incorporate thin polycarbonate barriers, which not only block intruding light from other tube lanes, but also add strength, Elma said. Each pipe in the LED array can block interfering light from other pipes.
The barriers are configurable. Customers have the option to place barriers between some or all of the pipes, providing the ability to mix and match. Slide covers that completely enclose the shaft of a lightpipe tube are also available. A slide cover allows only the end of the lightpipe tube to be seen and prevents light interference in all directions.
Pricing: Approximately $0.30 each in volume, depending on configuration.
Availability: Delivery is four weeks ARO.
