Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), 5mm LEDs operate reliably year after year and are appropriate for many applications. They can be used as individual pixels in a large dot matrix screen, full color screens, moving signs and displays. More diverse applications for 5mm LEDs include light sources for scanners used in color copiers, spectral analysis, high-speed document reading and color synthesis. Other applications include medical imaging and biomedical instrumentation, telecommunications equipment, machine vision systems, and color recognition and calibration systems – any application that requires a bright, reliable LED.

Founded in 1983, LEDtronics® leads where others only follow when it comes to designing, manufacturing and packaging state-of-the-art LEDs to meet the world’s constantly changing lighting needs. Our inventive product line encompasses an array of direct incandescent lamp replacement Based LEDs, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LEDs, high intensity sunlight-visible Discrete LEDs, PCB LEDs circuit board status indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.

Prices for 5mm Discrete LEDs range from $0.14 - $3.30 each in quantities of 1,000 depending on the technology of the LED color. Availability is stock to 4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. For qualified customers, samples are available to meet your design requirements.
