With advancements in LED technology and decades of industry-leading experience, LEDtronics miniature indicator LEDs are incredibly energy-efficient and long-lasting sources of lighting. Our bulbs can meet your every need regarding wattage, voltage and dimension, delivering superior, lasting performance.
Miniature Bulb Base Options
A miniature indicator light bulb is a low wattage alternative to traditional incandescent and halogen lamps. Miniature LED indicator bulbs are often available with either screw base, bayonet base or bi-pin installation options. Screw bases are the most common type of light bulb base. Screw bases for miniature indicator bulbs are typically available in bayonet, flange, candelabra and wedge styles.
Bi-pin LED bulb bases are recognized by their two pins protruding from the base of the bulb that is pushed into the socket, connecting the bulb to the voltage. Miniature LED indicator light bulb bases are labeled using the letter “G” followed by a number that indicates the millimeter measurement between the two pins. The most common bi-pin miniature LED bases are:
- G4:A G4 base uses pins spaced 4 millimeters apart.
- GY6.35:A bulb label of GY6.35 indicates the pins have a gap measuring 6 millimeters.
- G8:This base has pins with an 8-millimeter gap.
- G9:The largest common bi-pin style is the G9 base, measuring at 9 millimeters of space between each pin.
Similar to this pattern, an "S" type bulb will have a number indicating the diameter of the glass in 1/8 millimeter increments. The common S8 bulbs, for example, are only 1 millimeter wide, and usually mounted on a single or double contact bayonet base.
Common Applications For Miniature Based LEDs
With its variety of voltage, base and shape options, miniature indicator LED light bulbs can be used in a variety of applications throughout the automotive and transportation, medical equipment, landscaping, engineering and utility industries. They can also be used to replace existing incandescent bulbs. Miniature indicator LEDs are often used in the production of other products like telephones and may be found in control panels, flashlights, indicators, optical instruments like projectors and microscopes, switchboards and vehicles.
Miniature indicator bulbs should only be installed in dry locations. They should not be used in demanding applications like microwaves and ovens, where the excessive heat can damage the bulb.
Benefits of Miniature Based LEDs
Many individuals and successful companies are optimizing product performance and lowering operating expenses by upgrading to miniature indicator light bulbs and swapping out dated incandescent and halogen alternatives. By utilizing miniature based LEDs for equipment, indicators and instrument panels, you’ll experience several benefits such as:
