Indicators & Pilot Lights
What is an LED Indicator?
An LED indicator displays illumination without the component requiring a push to action. The opposite of the typical push button switch. LED indicators and pilot lights are often found in a number of applications, for example, medical devices.
Pilot lights are also known as power light indicators, commonly used in devices to signpost the start/stop/end of a process. Often indicated by a change in colour, changing from red to green or visa-versa, meaning that Pilot lights are dual colours.
RJS Electronics offers a range of panel mount LED indicators, pilot lights and panel indicators. Select from metal or plastic, available in sizes ranging from 6mm – 30mm, with a range of shapes and IP ratings. Most importantly, they support a range of LED illuminated options to suit your design.

|Single LED Illumination||A single LED illumination is the display of a single LED colour.|
|Bi-Colour LED Illumination||A bi-colour LED switch means it can display two colours together or switch between two LED illumination.|
|RGB LED Illumination||Switches that are listed with ‘RGB’ LED illumination, with the combination ‘red’, ‘blue’ and ‘green’, over 16million hues of light can be achieved. However, some pinks and browns are difficult to achieve.|
What are IP ratings?
IP ratings are standards set out by IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) under the 60529 standards document which specifies a classification system on the effectiveness in the sealing of enclosures of electrical equipment. This looks at the protection of factors such as dust and water/moisture.
The IP rating will depend on how hard wearing or weatherproof the component needs to be. For example, a metal push button switch in a swimming pool will need to be waterproof and hence this product will need a higher IP rated switch.
See the chart below outlining the IP rating and its characteristics.
|IP65||Dust-tight, protected against water projected from a nozzle.|
|IP66||Dust-tight and protected against powerful water jets.|
|IP67||Dust-tight and protected from water immersion for 30 minutes between depths of 150mm – 1000mm.|
|IP68||Dust-tight and protected against continuous water immersion.|
