Elma Electronic (Fremont, CA) now offers standing light guides for the transportation of light from a PCB to the front of a panel. The light guides are typically used in applications where the PCB stands parallel to the light emitters and front panel, such as indication systems that transmit the operating status for a device. The indicators are 3mm in diameter and have ESD protection of 8kV to 12kV within a defined ambient temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. Elma’s guides range from 9.6mm to 45mm in length, which allows for variable distances.
