Mentor sample box with more than 20 original light guides.

To provide you with the best possible support in your development projects, we have put together a light guide sample box with more than 20 different MENTOR light guides, which will give you an overview of all our standard range of light guides.

In this special event, running until the end of January 2016, we are providing our customers their own sample box on request - free of charge and without obligation. 

The sample box includes ....

- many tried and tested problem solvers
- the latest product innovations  
- a variety of special solutions: flexible light guides and IP 68 versions
- front panel light guides for front or rear assembly 
- horizontal and vertical versions for assembling the circuit boards  
- single and multiple light guides in various sizes
- light guides with different head shapes: round, square, rectangular

Touch, compare and grasp them in every sense of the word.  Thus you will find out how big the difference is between a classic-sized and a miniature version, for example. You will discover the elegant appearance of square light guides and how many variations our flexible light guides have.

Every light guide in the sample box represents a whole family of light guides. Use the web codes listed in the box to reach the product overview of the respective product families on our website, simply and directly.  
You can find further information, product overviews, photos, technical data, product diagrams, examples of use, references and much more on our website in the new “World of Light Guides”.

Send for your personal sample box and contact your MENTOR partner in your country.

With the sample box, you have the perfect light guide solution for your project, quite literally in your hands. We will of course be happy to also give you personal advice on our standard solutions, but also on customised solutions which in many cases we can implement for you at non or low tooling costs.
