VCC’s LITEPIPE® provides a method of transmitting the light of a surface mount LED to the display panel. Both vertical and horizontal PCB surface mount LEDs can be displayed in this manner. The LITEPIPE® is also capable of blending multicolor LED light into a single color. LITEPIPE® lightpipes have a unique near flush design and are still able to provide up to 160 degrees of viewing angle. This light output is achieved by the use of a concave shaped receiving surface which collects the LEDs light, and fresnel rings on the opposite surface that disperse the light. The LITEPIPE® is available in 0.020" increments from 0.200" to 2.0". This wide range of lengths simplifies the PCB positioning in relation to the display panel. Lightpipes are secured directly to the display panel with no mechanical attachment to the PCB. The installation and removal of the circuit board can thus be accomplished without disturbing the display panel. To install, slide the LITEPIPE® through the panel opening and slip the retainer in place. Finish the installation by pressing the retainer up against the display panel.
