SAN DIEGO, CA – VCC, a recognized leader in indication and specialty illumination solutions, has developed a rigid light pipe that delivers bright, focused light and eliminates glare and shadowing. The LPCR Series rigid light pipe features a low-profile Fresnel lens that offers a 160 degree viewing angle.
Ideal for a wide range of medium to high volume applications, the 0.171” (4.34mm) diameter LPCR Series easily extends light from the board to the desired surface. No physical connection between the light pipe and LED (SMT or through hole) is required, providing versatility for assembly. The front panel mount light pipe features crushable ribs that also simplifies installation and maintenance.
For harsh, high-vibration applications, the LPCR Series is available with an optional retainer (RTN_150, RTN_250) to ensure secure and uniform placement of the light pipe to the panel.
“Designed for mass produced products, the low-profile, vibration resistant LPCR light pipe expands flush panel design opportunities for our customers,” said Sannah Vinding, Director of Product Development and Marketing at VCC. “The rigid light pipe simplifies the design process, and provides assembly, installation and maintenance time and cost savings.”
The LPCR Series is available in a wide range of standard lengths from 0125” (3.2mm) to 1.0” (25.4mm), as well as custom lengths to simplify PCB positioning in relation to the display panel.
Made of optical grade polycarbonate 94V-0 clear material, the LPCR Series is compliant with RoHS and REACH requirements.
