The new LTHxMM12V Series has been launched as a through hole LED indicator with a built-in resistor for 12V DC applications, by VCC. The built-in resistor not only simplifies and accelerates the design and manufacturing processes, but also offers significant space and cost savings by eliminating the need for an additional resistor.
The built-in resistor improves the device's overall reliability for use in a multitude of applications such as automotive industry, boats, landscape lighting, storage servers and is suitable for outdoor applications.
Available in a 3mm T1 version (LTH3MM12V) and a 5mm T1¾ (LTH5MM12V) version, the through hole LED indicators offer light output for readability in sunlight.
Its flange lead frame style makes the LTHxMM12V suitable for status indication and display applications. The indicators have a domed top with a water-clear lens that is produced in a variety of colours including red, green, blue, yellow, and white.
Sannah Vinding, Director of Product Development and Marketing at VCC commented: "The new LTH Series combines high brightness indication and excellent daytime readability with reliable performance and design simplicity, as it can be connected to a 12V power supply without additional components.”
The LTHxMM12V is compliant with RoHS and REACH requirements.
