Light Pipes for Front Panel Installation
Published by : Industrial Automation
With Metal- or Plastic Housings, for Snap-In or Screw Mounting – the most economic solution.
Light pipes or conductors for front panel-mounting usually have lateral fixing lugs and are therefore designed for press-fit fastening. Those types are the most economic solution in terms of price per unit, but require very precise drilling or even reaming in order to ensure a secure hold in the front panel or to achieve a higher degree of IP protection.
With our new light pipes, developed on the basis of well-proven indicator displays, the mounting could be significantly improved. In addition possible tolerances of the mounting holes are compensated.
Currently there are 2 sizes available with plastic housings for snap-in mounting or metal housings for screw mounting for IP67 applications. The installation Ø is 6 mm in connection with 3 mm light guide, and 7 mm and 8 mm for 5 mm light guide.
In addition, different types of finishing of the housing, especially the chromium plated metal housings, complement the respective design of the final product. With all sizes, lengths of light pipes from 10 to 42 mm are available, in PMMA as well as in a UL94-V0 material.
