Light guide junction, available from Erntec , can be connected to one, two or three SMD LEDs and type 0805 or smaller.
Two spigots will fix it to the circuit board. With LEDS emitting the primary colours red, green and blue, the light guide junction can generate any mixed colour of the palette. It also displays individual colours of LEDs.
The device is mounted in an upright position and requires only 13 x 3mm on the circuit board. The wide working temperature range (40° to +85°C ) and a variety of colours make it a suitable tool for universal application, for example, multi-colour status displays with only one lamp.
The standard light guide is available in 15, 30 and 45mm length. Special length may be ordered with batches of 1,000 pieces and above. The light guide junction offers a high degree of ESD protection with its 15KW, and protects sensitive switching electronics against electric disturbances.
Flexible light guides made of 1,000 or 2,000µm PMMA fibres to be used with the junction offer a solution for restricted space and positioning problems. The light guide junction sits in a lens in the front panel that holds it in place. Flexible light guides and lenses are supplied for self-assembly also.
