MENTOR Front Panel LED Indicators
New, Unique and Very Clever!

MENTOR’S Modern Iteration of the Traditional
Front Panel Signal Indicator

Modular Waterproof UV-Resistant High ESD Protection
Standard Parts
Ex-Stock Low MOQs Easily Customisable
Based on a single SMD LED, MENTOR has developed a new family of signal indicator lights, available in a wide range of standard products combined with options for customised solutions. They are easy to assemble and can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.
Standard products: Ø3mm or Ø5mm versions with LED Options

All standard products have a robust plastic housing, available in black or with a metallic appearance. The lens diameter is either 3mm or 5mm. They are available with a choice of white or RGB low-current LEDs. More...

Simple and fast Push-fit assembly with Cable or Plug connection

The new signal lights use a push-fit rather than screw-in design - they are simply inserted into the front panel mounting hole and fixed securely in position by the integrated metal clamp ring. A choice of Cable or Plug termination is offered (for 2x2 multi-pin connectors with a pitch of 2.54mm). Previous MENTOR THT Signal Indicators can be easily replaced by the new SMD version in existing applications. More...

Waterproof - UV-resistant - High ESD protection

High-quality seals completely encapsulate the PCB, providing IP68 rating. In addition, UV-stable materials have been used, making the signal indicators suitable for outdoor use. The combination of the SMD LED with a light guide within the signal indicator results in very high ESD protection for the front panel or enclosure. More...

Easy no-tooling customisation

The modular concept means that it is simple for MENTOR to deliver special customised versions - additional tooling costs are not normally charged. The SMD LED options include single colour, special colours, duo-LED, IR and night vision. Other customisation options include: I²C controller, series resistors and alternative electrical connections.
