Current limiting resistor needed in series with one lead. When connected directly to DCC voltage, Litchfield Station, LLC recommends a 750 to 1500 ohm resistor The lower the resistor value, the brighter the light, but the shorter the life of the LED. With a 1000 ohm resistor, expect a life of about 5000 illuminated hours (over 6 months of 24 hours a day, every day).
3 mm nominal diameter (T1 size)
2-LEAD These LEDs, also know as bidirectional, are great to use as an indicator with Tortoise motors. They show which direction the current is flowing in the Tortoise!
COVID-19 INFO: Arizona has issued an ordinance for us to shelter in place through the end of April. Orders will be accepted and processed, hopefully, with no change in service. Thank you for your patience! Dismiss
