LED light pipe assemblies from Tyco Electronics provide a convenient and easy-to-use way to achieve accent lighting.

LED light pipe assemblies from Tyco Electronics provide a convenient and easy-to-use way to achieve accent lighting.

The system uses a linear LED light source and a large-core optical fibre to project light the length of the light pipe.

An integrated reflector in the light pipe allows light to be emitted along the pipe's length.

Applications include accent lighting in commercial buildings, appliances, rail, motor vehicles, marine and commercial aircraft.

The low-intensity light engine assembly includes a 0.5W LED and an integrated DC driver.

It does not require any additional heat sink or forced air cooling.

The high-intensity light socket assemblies accept industry-standard starboard-style 1 - 5W LEDs, available from many vendors in a variety of colours.

The assembly includes a heat sink to address the thermal issues of using high-power LEDs.

The light pipes, available in diameters of five and 10mm and lengths up to 78in (1981mm), are made of optical-grade acrylic.

Light-pipe bracket slots allow the assembly's reflector strip to be oriented in four different positions for directional lighting flexibility.
