These are general purpose large 5mm LED Yellow (10Pack) with diffused lens and good brightness.
- Qty 1 – 5mm LED Yellow (10Pack), General Purpose
KEY FEATURES OF LED RED 10MM DIFFUSED:
- General purpose LEDs
- Yellow color (625nm wavelength nominal)
- Large 5mm diameter
- Diffused lens for wide viewing angle
These are general purpose 5mm LEDs with diffused lens and good brightness that work well for general indicator use. The large size is handy when a larger indicator is desired.
The shorter of the two leads denotes the cathode. Note that there is usually a flat surface on both sides of the housing, so you cannot rely on that as the cathode indication.
For size comparison, a 3mm, 5mm and 10mm LED are shown to the right.
A current limiting series resistor is needed to protect the LED and/or the device being used to drive it.
A larger resistor of around 220- 470 ohm can be used to reduce current at a lower brightness.
