Elma Unveils Extreme Temperature Light Guides

Elma Electronic has announced new high-temperature light guides with integrated LEDs. The LEDs are ideal for vapor phase soldering. The Elma light guides can withstand 260 degrees C for 40 seconds, or 200 degrees C for 180 seconds. This represents a substantial improvement in compatible solderability with other components from the previous 235 degrees C and 185 degrees C respectively. They are available in single or dual LED version and vertical and horizontal orientations.
