Bendable Light Guides Allow Design Flexibility
Wed, 12/02/2009 - 4:28am
Flexible light guides facilitate a wide range of adaptable panel indicating options. They can be bent in 90° or other angles. This allows the LED to be mounted to a PCB while fixed to a panel at a right angle. Available in various lengths, the LED mounting can be done in a vast array of positions, locations, around corners or components, and more. The light guides have common sizes of 2.0-mm diameter, 80- or 150-mm length, and black and clear tube colors. However, the light guides are customizable to the customer's requirements. They are designed for -40°C to 85°C ambient temperatures and housings and lens material to UL94 flammability standards.
