Press Release Summary:
With versions for both low- and high-intensity LEDs, LED light pipe assemblies use linear LED light source and large-core optical fiber that projects light through length of light pipe. Low-intensity light engine assembly includes 0.5 W LED and integrated DC driver, while high-intensity light socket assemblies accept starboard-style 1-5 W LEDs and include heat sink. Made of optical-grade acrylic, light pipes are available in 5 and 10 mm dia and lengths up to 78 in.

Tyco Electronics Unveils LED Light Pipe Assemblies
Complete System Includes LEDs, Drivers, Light Pipe, and Cables for Low- and High-Intensity LEDs
HARRISBURG, Pa. - Dec. 5, 2008 - New LED light pipe assemblies from Tyco Electronics provide a convenient and easy-to-use way to achieve accent lighting. With versions for both low- and high-intensity LEDs, the system uses a linear LED light source and a proprietary large-core optical fiber to project light the length of the light pipe. An integrated reflector in the light pipe allows light to be directionally emitted along the pipe's length. Applications include accent lighting in commercial buildings, appliances, rail, motor vehicles, marine, and commercial aircraft.
The low-intensity light engine assembly includes both a 0.5-watt LED and an integrated DC driver and does not require any additional heat sink or forced air cooling.
The high-intensity light socket assemblies accept industry-standard starboard-style 1- to 5-watt LEDs commercially available from a number of vendors in many colors. The assembly includes a heat sink to address the thermal issues of using high-power LEDs.
The light pipes, available in diameters of 5 mm and 10 mm and lengths up to 78 inches (2 meters), are made of optical-grade acrylic. Light pipe bracket slots allow the assembly's reflector strip to be oriented in four different positions for directional lighting flexibility.
