Flexible light guide systems for SMD and THT LEDs

Flexible light guide systems from MENTOR are elegant, cost-effective solutions for many opto-electronic design challenges that present themselves when a product is given a new design in mid-lifecycle, for example. MENTOR offers flexible solutions for SMD and THT LEDs with 1,000 μm, 2,000 μm and 3,000 μm fibres and transparent, but also coloured lenses. The flexible light guides are fixed on the circuit board over a TOPLED by means of push-fit pegs; the lenses are fixed in the front panel.

Flexible light guide systems for SMD LEDs


The range of flexible light guide solutions includes light guides and light guide switches for use with SMD LEDs. The casings are held in the printed circuit board by using two press-fit lugs. The light guides are used in combination with TOPLEDs or CHIPLEDs, depending on the version. The casing, light guide and lenses are supplied unassembled.

Angle-holder for stress-free assembly. The light guides can be precisely redirected by 90° within a very small space where this is necessary on customised grounds.

Adapter to connect to existing light guide elements with Ø3mm.

Socket for three light guide bars for use in combination with SMD LEDs.

Flexible light guide systems for THT LEDs


The casing is designed for light guide photographs of Ø2mm, which means that 2,000μm fibres and on request, 1,000μm fibres, with a black coating, are used. The casing can be used vertically or horizontally. The light guide fibres to the front panel are provided with a lens The lens is held in place in the front panel by press fit. The light guide is used in combination with THT LEDs. The casing, light guide and lens are supplied unassembled.
