Details On Various Models Available
We carry a large selection of ultra-bright Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). LED modules are available in several models in a full rainbow of colors including Blue, White, UV, Purple, Red, Green & Yellow in very high-intensity output levels.LEDs are versatile semiconductor devices with a number of attributes which make them perfect for most applications. Their features include:
- LEDs can last over 100,000 hours (10+ years) if used at rated current
- No annoying flicker like from fluorescent lamps
- LEDs are impervious to heat, cold, shock and vibration
- No breakable glass is used
- Solid-State, high shock and vibration resistant
- Extremely fast turn On/Off times
- Low power consumption puts less load on the electrical systems increasing battery life
White LEDs are perfect for replacing small, inefficient incandescent bulbs in night lights, flashlights, path lights, task lights and exit signs. Their versatility makes them a natural for use in alternate energy (solar) applications, automotive, aeronautic and water-based vehicles.
We offer a number of different models of LEDs which can be ordered through our online ordering system. When looking at the specifications of the LEDs, you will notice that we carry multiple models in the same color - the reason for this is that some have a wider viewing angle. When you have a wide viewing angle, the overall brightness (Luminous Intensity) goes down slightly.
Although our LEDs are not powerful enough to require eye protection labeling, DO NOT look directly into the beam from a close distance, just like with a halogen lamp.
LEDs are sensitive to static. The manufacturer recommends a grounding wrist strap, but we have had no problems without one during our research. Just be careful not to drag your feet across the carpet and grab a handful of LEDs, or simply touch a grounded metal chassis before handling LEDs.
