This light guide is a hybrid between classic size and miniature. It is designed for use with 0805 CHIPLEDs or smaller that are mounted in the classic 5.08mm grid dimension. However, the light guide elements are just Ø2mm and are vertically spaced at 2.54mm centres.

It is available as standard in either a 4-row, single column version (4 elements) or with between 2 and 10 columns (8 to 40 elements). Custom versions with just 1, 2 or 3 rows can also be supplied. An integrated diaphragm prevents light bleed, thus allowing the use of mixed colors with optimum optical quality. This diaphragm ensures the tight fit of the light guide, which is mounted on the PCB via two press-in lugs. Length A is 2.8mm as standard but infinite length variations can be supplied up to 12.8mm.
