Options to Suit the Application
  • Surface shape – variations include either a flat or a domed top with a frosted surface that diffuses the light and provides uniform brightness and a soft glow.
  • Length – available in standard lengths from 0.20” to 1.000” with ability to customize.
Sleek Design

The flat top version sits flush to the panel surface for a sleek, modern aesthetic.

Stay-Put Placement

Rigid light pipe attaches to the board and panel, eliminating horizontal or vertical misalignment between LED, PCB and HMI or shifting during high-vibration operations.

ESD Protection

Board-mount design protects the LED from damage by ESD.

Maximum Light Transmission

UL 94V-0 optical-grade polycarbonate for maximum light transmission.

Easy Installation

Press-fit light pipe for surface mount (SMD) installation into the PCB board, which simplifies installation and enables faster assembly in a production environment.
