Light Guides Take Extreme Temperatures
Elma Electronic announced high-temperature light guides with integrated LEDs, which are suitable for vapor phase soldering. The light guides can withstand 260°C for 40 seconds, or 200°C for 180 seconds. They are available in single or dual LED version and vertical and horizontal orientations. The lightguides are far removed from direct contact to the front panel. Therefore ESD protection is greatly increased over conventional LED designs. The lightpipes come with or without solder tags, fixing pins and adjacent light radiating covers.
