Mentor flexible light guide / light pipe systems now at Foremost

Foremost Electronics is now offering its UK customers flexible light guide / light pipe systems from the long-established German manufacturer Mentor, a world-leader in the design and in-house manufacture of LED displays providing precision optics that precisely manage the light emitted from the latest powerful LEDs.

Flexible light guide / light pipe systems from Mentor offer an elegant and cost-efficient option for many opto-electronic design challenges - not least for a minor design change during a product mid-life-cycle face-lift. The most popular versions are designed for use with SMD TOP LEDS. These light guides push-fit into a Polycarbonate housing that is mounted on the PCB with two press-in lugs. As standard, a transparent lens is supplied for use at the visible end. Alternative coloured lenses are available, as are custom lengths. Mentor offers other flexible options for SMD and THT LEDs with 1000μm, 2000μm and 3000μm fibres.

Mentor also offers a range of flexible "M-Tub" light guides / light pipes. Unlike conventional light guides, these are designed to emit homogenous light along their entire length (up to 2M). They are suitable for cosmetic illumination of large control panels and have many other uses, limited only by imagination!

Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost, comments: "Many applications require LED illumination for control and HMI purposes on ergonomically designed products which require complex assembly. Flexible light guides allow designers to illuminate control panels or surfaces without a fixed connection to host PCBs. Flexible light guides are also growing in popularity for aesthetic illumination of control panels, POS, signs, architectural features and public displays for which a flexible light pipe is an elegant solution."
