Lumex Inc. has announced the availability of the LPF-C041304S right-angle quad LED fault indicator, which the company touts to be the first passive light guide designed for use with SMT LEDs.

Designed for use wherever light must be moved from circuit board-mounted SMT LEDs to any nearby front panel, the fault indicator snaps into any standard circuit board, fitting over four SMT LEDs. It has a right-angle design, which carries the light from those LEDs to a front panel.

The LPF-C041304S is made of clear UL 94V-0-rated polycarbonate and can be used with LEDs of any color. It is designed for use with Lumex's SML-LX1206 Series of SMT LEDs. It can also be stacked with its mate, the LPF-C041303S, to provide a total of eight front panel indicators.

The LPF-C041304S has four, 2.8mm(?) indicators, on 5.08mm centers. The distance from the center-line of the board-mounted LEDs to the faces of each of the four indicators is 16mm.

As with other members of the Light Pipes family, the fault indicator can be color custom-configured to each specific application. Pricing starts at $1.45 each in quantities of 1,000 pieces, and varies depending on options specified and quantity ordered.
