Recessed LED panel mount indicator boosts light distribution

Claimed to maximise light output distribution, a rugged 5mm LED indicator from VCC has a recessed design that offers a 30 or 45 degree viewing angle. The small L65 series LED panel mount indicators provide high contrast, fast on/off cycling, low energy consumption and low heat output, which delivers long operating life of more than 100,000 hours.

The LED panel mount indicators are shock- and impact vibration-resistant. The 5mm diffused LED indicators are also water-, dust- and oil-resistant when used with an O-ring gasket accessory that maximises equipment life expectancy, says the company.

Brightness is achieved in microseconds and the LED can be used for new and retrofit designs in a range of applications that are subject to frequent on/off cycling including aircraft instrumentation, industrial control panels, transportation dashboards, and more.

The diffused 5mm LED (T13/4) is offered in various colours including red, green and yellow.

Front panel snap-in mounting is claimed to ease installation and reduce assembly time and cost. The LED indicators snap fit into an 8.0mm panel hole and require no additional hardware. Available with rated voltages from 2.0 to 24V DC, the indicators are designed with straight leads.

Suitable applications are automation and control, electrical control, food service, industrial, manufacturing, maritime, medical equipment, oil and gas, and transportation.

The brass and chromium plated indicator is compliant with RoHS and REACH requirements.
