TORRANCE, CA — March 5, 2001 — LEDtronics® announces the PC145 Series Round 3mm PCB LED indicators. These right angle, single-level LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are designed for applications where the board configuration requires the PCB LED to be taller than the surrounding components while providing the stability necessary to align status indicators precisely.

Advanced optical grade epoxy is used to produce illumination that is bright and smooth. Diffused lenses are standard for single-colored LEDs. Bi-colored LEDs come with milky-white lenses. Clear lenses are optional for both. Single-colored LEDs are stocked in Red, Green and Yellow. Bi-colored combinations are Red/Green and Yellow/Green. Dependent upon factory approval, Orange, Cool White and Pure Green may be ordered for either configuration. Housings are made of rugged, black UL94V0-compliant polycarbonate. Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes.

With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LED lamps operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent lamp! Savings from reduced maintenance costs and downtime quickly return the capital investment expenditure! LED lamps produce almost no heat and require 80% - 90% less operating power than equivalent incandescents, making them as friendly to the environment as they are to the operating budget.

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 LED Lamps, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LED Lamps, 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.

PC145 Right Angle, Single-Level Round 3mm PCB LEDs are priced at $0.34 each for quantities of 1,000 depending on the LED color. Availability is stock to 4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. Samples are available for qualified customers.
