LED Light Pipes, MENTOR - Front Panels

MENTOR light guides are designed to transmit light from a PCB-mounted LED to the desired user interface. This transfer is completed with little or no loss of luminance and no light bleed between adjacent elements.
This vast range of light guides are available in single or multiple light guide options, with a range of head shapes and sizes. These options allow them to provide a solution for all sorts of applications. They also offer simple installation and high ESD protection.
Front panel light guides are ideal for applications where the light guide is not attached to the PCB. They push-fit into a hole in the front panel with the light-inject face close to the LED. Front panel light guides therefore provide a variety of design options.
