New Low Voltage LED Panel Indicator Bulbs are color-coded for convenience and energy savings
LEDtronics®, Inc., adds a new series of low-voltage lamps to its large and constantly expanding selection of LED Metal Panel Indicators, as direct replacements for inefficient and low-performing incandescent counterparts.
These 12VDC panel indicators with a 0.10-inch wide spade terminal fit 14mm (0.551 inches) mounting holes inside control panels and status indicators located in power plants, assembly lines, industrial controls, automotive, and more applications. They fit panels with a thickness ranging from 0.5mm to 8mm.
The PT14M-012V-T1 series LED lamps feature a shallow, color-tinted, diffused lens dome with a nickel-plated bezel and a 5mm LED; they are offered in a choice of aqua green, super red, and super yellow colors. The matching color of the polycarbonate body and base makes it a convenient indication of the color of the lamp. They are housed in copper alloy and come with a black Buna-N O-ring, an 18-8 stainless steel internal-tooth lock washer, and an H59 nickel-plated brass nut with a maximum torque of 13 ft-lbs (18 Nm).
These 12VDC LED panel mount lamps only consume a minimal 0.1 watt of power and operate on an input current of 0.006 amperes, providing a luminous intensity range of 100 to 1325 millicandelas and a luminous flux between 0.1 and 1 lumens, depending on color. The angle of illumination varies between 40 and 75 degrees. They are IP67 rated – dust-tight and immersion in water up to 1 meter in depth.
Solid-state design renders them impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent on-and-off switching, and environmental fluctuation. Additionally, these ROHS-compliant LED lamps contain no harmful mercury or other toxic elements and, unlike their incandescent counterparts, generate only negligible heat and emit neither UV/IR.
Their long life, energy savings of up to 90% over incandescent lamps, and reliability in a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C lower costs and reduce re-lamp frequency. Utility monitors, industrial designers, and maintenance departments will find these lights to be excellent solutions for maintenance-intensive and critical-process applications.
The latest series of LEDtronics Low-Voltage LED Metal Panel Indicator Lights with spade terminals come with an unconditional 3-year U.S. factory warranty. They are available through LEDtronics distributors, and quantity discounts are available. Other voltages and color options for large quantities and qualified applications are also available.
