Press Release Summary:
Housed in surface mount package, Bivar Series SMTV01 integrates LED, maximizing light transmission by eliminating light bleed from LED to adapter. Combined component does not require mounting holes and uses industry-standard 0606 mounting pattern. Since post wave solder assembly is eliminated, production is simplified. Integrated LED is available in 4 single color options, 3 bi-color configurations, and tri-color RGB LED.
Original Press Release:
LED-Integrated Light Pipe Adapter
Optoelectronics industry-leader Bivar introduces a new series of light-pipe adapter with integral LED in a surface-mount package that simplifies PCB design, speeds assembly, lowers parts count and increases light efficiency.
Typical flexible light pipe systems consist of four components: panel lens, light pipe, adapter and LED. Bivar's new SMTV01 series integrates the LED into the adapter which maximizes light transmission by eliminating light bleed from the LED to adapter. The combined component does not require mounting holes and uses industry-standard 0606 mounting pattern, so occupies less space. Production is simplified and labor saved by elimination of post wave solder assembly, required by most typical discrete adapters.
The integrated LED is available in color-options including four (4) single colors, three (3) bi-color configurations and a tri-color RGB LED. Multiple luminous intensity output options add to the flexibility.
The SMTV01 series is part of Bivar's popular 2mm flexible light pipe system, allowing light to travel distances from a few millimetres to 100 metres. The system includes a wide range of lens faces for panel-mount.
