THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - July 7, 2009

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, announced today it is now stocking Tyco Electronics LED light pipe assemblies.

Products now available on Digi-Key's global websites include:

  • 2008876-1 (Digi-Key #A99857-ND) 10 mm low-intensity light engine assembly
  • 2008876-2 (Digi-Key #A99858-ND) 5 mm low-intensity light engine assembly

  • 2058296-1 (Digi-Key #A99861-ND) 5 mm light pipe

These LED light pipe assemblies 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 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 length of the light pipe. Potential applications include accent lighting in commercial buildings, appliances, rail, motor vehicles, marine, and commercial aircraft.
