LED TriLight: 9-inch LED Light Bar
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are an attractive, economical and convenient option for lighting applications. Available in a wide variety of colors, styles, sizes and intensities, LEDs provide for inexpensive, highly-efficient, low-voltage, reliable lighting solutions. Applications range from lighting in aquariums, recreational vehicles, marine & aircraft to computer case mods, under-vehicle lighting, emergency/security lighting and accent-lighting in the kitchen and around your home - the options are endless.
One challenge with LEDs is the mounting of the displays. We produce several innovative solutions, including the LED TriLight.
The LED TriLight is a versatile mounting system which holds nine equally-spaced LEDs on a compact 9" x .580" (229mm x 15mm) display board. The LED TriLight supports three separate inputs, each driving a separate set of three LEDs. This allows for the placement of Red, Green and Blue LEDs on the board - which can be used with products such as our LED Rainbow to produce stunning lighting effect. A unique feature of the design allows for the mounting of standard 5mm LEDs or Super Flux / Piranha 4-pin LEDs. Below is the layout of the LED TriLight, showing the mounting locations of the nine LEDs, one board using standard 5mm LEDs with the other board holding 4-pin Piranha LEDs.
With three separate inputs on the LED TriLight, special effects can be achieved including the sequencing of LEDs and also dimming using our LED Rainbow. Shown below is a sequence animation cycling through the three colors of LEDs.
Construction of the LED TriLight is extremely simple and can be completed by the novice builder in less than 30 minutes requiring only minimal soldering skills. With only nine LEDs and three resistors, this system is likely to be one the simplest and most satisfying kits you will ever construct.
A complete instruction manual, which includes construction guide and schematics for the LED TriLight is available for download.
