What are metal LED indicators?
Metal LED indicators and panels are electromechanical components which emit light when a key function or process is being carried out or in use. Additionally, the colour of the light that is emitted by LED indicator can be used as a key. For example, a red light is universally recognized as a stop or no-entry whereas green is recognised as go or ok. Our, metal LED indicators are available in a range of shapes and sizes which light up. Essentially, metal LED indicators to refer to the housing of which the LED indicator sits within is metal housing. LED indicator are panel mount switches, meaning they sit directly on top of a component and part of a wider electrical circuit.
We have made it easier to find the correct LED indicator you may need by categorising it by material and size. Our metal, LED indicators are available in a variety of shapes such as flushed, raised and domed and range of sizes from 6mm – 30mm to suit a range of designs and applications for a wide range of industries. Many of our LED indicators are support voltage 3V – 24V. Our metal LED indicators can support a range finishes of brushed steel and black anodised. For any other finishes, speak to our Sales Engineers.
Select from full illumination or split-screen.
The display of the illumination can be full illumination, meaning it will display a single/bi-colour/RGB colour illuminating the entire surface of the indicator or it can be split. Our LED panels can support split-screen options from two, three of four split options to display colours together or separately.
LED Illumination Options
|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.|
LED Colours Options:
Red | Yellow | Blue | Orange | Green | Amber | White
*actual LED illumination will vary in tone due to materials and voltage used.
Choose from screw terminals or connector type or Solder-lug terminals. All terminal options are designed for fast and easy installation.
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.
Our metal LED indicators are available from 6mm to 30mm, choose from rectangular, round or square shape.
