Zero light bleed surface mount rigid light light pipe system - LPR, LPV


  • Bivar now offers fully compatible light pipe and LED system sold as one product
  • New product offering expands on Zero Light Bleed™ series with an innovative adapter design to produce maximum light transmission without bleed


IRVINE, Calif., July 22, 2019 - Bivar, market-leading provider of LED indication products and solutions, today announced exciting new additions to the highly successful LPR and LPV series which features innovative Zero Light Bleed™ adapter technology.

Bivar is the first to offer this innovative Zero Light Bleed adapter technology with a built-in surface mount LED. This new innovative adapter design surrounds a built-in surface-mount LED and channels light directly to the lens, eliminating disruptive light bleed at the source which protects from false-readings, muted and blended colors, and unwanted glow in the chassis.

The adapter technology eliminates light bleed in a conveniently packaged, durable single-solution available in a wide variety of configurations and colors. Many customers with applications in Industrial Automation, Robotics, Data Center Solutions, Agriculture, and Telecom Infrastructure take advantage of using many colors to communicate more than simply on or off.

Bivar’s Zero Light Bleed solution benefits customers by eliminating component selection guesswork, improving durability, and simplifying sourcing.

  • Optimum compatibility: The new Zero Light Bleed LPV and LPR systems were designed with the most compatible LED and light pipe pairing providing maximum light transmission while eliminating light crosstalk between light pipes.
  • Enhanced durability: The adapter assembly is soldered directly to PCB, thus strengthening attachment to the PCB. The new light pipe system is optimal for high vibration applications. Ideal for applications that require conformal coating used to prevent current bleed between closely positioned components
  • Simplified sourcing: The new complete system makes sourcing simple by including a surface mount Zero Light Bleed adapter, LED, and light pipe. It delivers convenience and resource savings for both procurement and assembly.
