Robust LED panel mount indicators suit frequent on/off cycling
VCC has announced a 3mm diffused LED indicator with a robust body and round protruding LED position that offers a viewing angle up to 50°. The L63 series achieves full brightness in microseconds and is suited for use in applications that are subject to frequent on/off cycling including aircraft instrumentation, industrial control panels, transportation dashboards and more.
Designed for new and retrofit designs, the small L63 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 L63 series LED panel mount indicators are shock and impact vibration resistant, improving the overall reliability of the equipment. The 3mm 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.
Sannah Vinding, Director of Product Development and Marketing, VCC, commented: "Our L63 series diffused LED panel mount indicator features a round protruding LED position designed for the most demanding applications. The L63 series achieves full brightness in microseconds, which is particularly important in daylight applications."
Front panel snap-in mounting eases installation and significantly reduces assembly time and cost. Snaps fit into 6.2mm (0.244") panel hole and requires no additional hardware. Available in red, green and yellow colours, the 2 to 3.2VDC LED indicators are designed with straight leads.
Featuring a viewing angle of 25 to 50°, the L63 series diffused LED panel mount indicator is well suited for automation & 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.
