The new 3mm and 5mm through hole LED indicators simplify design and assembly in a wide range of applications
SAN DIEGO, CA — VCC has launched the LTHxMM12V Series, a through hole LED indicator with a built-in resistor for 12V DC applications. 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 ideal for outdoor applications.
Available in a 3mm T1 version (LTH3MM12V) and a 5mm T1¾ (LTH5MM12V) version, the through hole LED indicators offer superior light output for excellent readability in sunlight. Its flange lead frame style makes the LTHxMM12V ideal for status indication and display applications. The indicators have a domed top with a water-clear lens that is produced in a variety of colors including red, green, blue, yellow, and white.
“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,” said Sannah Vinding, Director of Product Development and Marketing at VCC.
The LTHxMM12V is compliant with RoHS and REACH requirements.
