Lumex Introduces Innovative Family of One-Piece LED Fault Indicators for Printed Circuit Boards
PALATINE, IL-Lumex Inc. is introducing its family of PC board fault indicators featuring an innovative one-piece design. These units integrate LED light sources, holders, and mounting pins, through a precision injection molding process. Because of their integrated design, these units require no additional factory-side assembly, and due to their tight-tolerance lead spacing, they are much easier to "auto insert." The result is a dramatically reduced installed cost, compared with conventional assembled fault indicators. The Lumex units are ideal for communications equipment, computer, power management, control system applications, or anywhere a fault or static indication is needed with mounting directly on the circuit board.
Lumex's One-Piece LED Fault Indicators are available in single, dual, triple, and quad LED versions, furnished with T-3 LEDs. An unlimited range of LED colors and intensities is available, since virtually any LED can be used in the injection molding process.
Electro-optical characteristics vary depending on the LED(s) chosen, but a typical green unit has a peak wavelength of 565 nm, with a typical axial intensity of 50 mcd at a forward current of If = 20mA.
Samples of many models are available from stock, with production quantities in 6 - 8 weeks. Pricing varies depending on model specified and quantity ordered. Minimum order quantity is generally in the range of 1,000 - 5,000 pieces each. A typical dual unit with two green LEDs is less than 20 cents each in quantities of 5,000.

Lumex, a member of the ITW family of companies, is a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of opto- and photo-electronic components, devices and displays. These products are used mostly in the man-to-machine interface, and in some cases, for the detection of motion, short-range signaling, and fiber communications. Lumex now offers thousands of items, with an emphasis on both application-specific and customer-specific parts for the North American, Asian and European markets.
The company is headquartered in Palatine, Illinois and Chu Dung, Hsin Chu County, Taiwan, ROC, with manufacturing facilities in Illinois, Taiwan and China, and distributors throughout North America, Europe and the Pacific Rim. Since its inception in 1980, Lumex was established as a global organization offering application-specific solutions-but with the manufacturing efficiencies normally associated only with volume operations. Lumex received its initial ISO 9001 registration in 1996.
