Mouser Electronics Exclusively Stocking Micro LITEPIPES® from VCC

New LMC Series has unique flush design allowing light transmission from surface mount or through-hole LED to front display panel.

Mansfield, Texas, USA - July 17, 2007 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., known for its rapid introduction of the newest products, today announced it is the only distributor stocking the LMC Series of Micro LITEPIPES® from Visual Communications Company (VCC), a leading manufacturer of LED lenses, mounts, light pipes, standoffs, connectors, and cable assemblies.

The new 2.5mm diameter LMC Series has a unique flush design allowing light transmission from a surface mount or through-hole LED to the front display panel. The LITEPIPE® transmits light from the source to the lens, dispensing the light up to 160 degrees; and increases the apparent brightness and viewing angle of a PCB-mounted LED. The series is available in sizes ranging from .200" to 1.20", and is virtually unseen until the LED is activated.

VCC LITEPIPES® are available for use with surface mount and standard package 3mm and 5mm LEDs. The circuit board can be installed or removed without disturbing the panel display because there is no physical connection between the LITEPIPE® and PCB-mounted LED.

"Mouser's rapid time to market provides our customers with quick access to our latest products," according to Mark Baker, VCC National Sales Director.

"One of Mouser's core competencies is to rapidly stock and market new products for our design engineering customers," said Mike Scott, Mouser's Vice President of Active Products, "and exclusively stocking VCC's new Micro LITEPIPE® allows us to create added value for our engineering customers' new product designs."
Mouser's broad-based product line, unsurpassed customer service, and streamlined warehouse operations make them the design engineer's one-stop shop for all the board-level components and associated development tools necessary for total project design.
