A rugged 5mm LED indicator with an innovative reflector that maximises light output and distribution has been released by VCC. The robust L65 series LED indicator has a recessed design that offers a 30 or 45° 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 rugged L65 series LED panel mount indicators are shock and impact vibration resistant, improving the overall reliability of the equipment. The 5mm diffused LED indicators are also water, dust and oil resistant when used with an O-ring gasket accessory that maximises the life expectancy of the equipment.
The L65 series achieves brightness in microseconds and is ideal for new and retrofit designs in a wide 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 colors including red, green and yellow.
"Our new L65 series LED panel mount indicator features a recessed LED with advanced reflector that maximises brightness in demanding, high vibration applications. The L65 series achieves full brightness in microseconds, which is particularly important in daylight applications with numerous on/off cycles," said Sannah Vinding, Director of Product Development and Marketing at VCC.
Front panel snap-in mounting eases installation and significantly reduces assembly time and cost. The LED indicators snap fit into a 0.315" (8.0mm) panel hole and require no additional hardware. Available with rated voltages from 2-24VDC, the LED indicators are designed with straight leads.
The L65 series diffused LED panel mount indicator is well suited for automation and control, electrical control, food service, industrial, manufacturing, maritime, medical equipment, oil and gas, people mover and transportation applications.
The brass and chromium plated indicator is compliant with RoHS and REACH requirements.
