A-Z of electrical components: L – LED’s

31 10 2011

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) play a significant role within the electronics manufacturing industry.

An LED is a semiconductor light source. It plays a crucial role across a vast range of sectors which rely on the electronics manufacturing industry.

Companies like Amphenol would not be able to offer the range of connectors and various other electronic components which they currently do, without the use of LED’s.

They offer numerous advantages compared to other light sources such as;

-Great robustness,

-Long lifetime,

-Low energy consumption

-Greater durability.


The power of LEDs

They can be used in automotive and aviation lighting. Infrared LEDs are also used in the remote control applications of products ranging from televisions to DVD players.

They are also vital for the connector industry specifically. Another major advantage of LEDs is that they are difficult to damage with external shock, unlike fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs which are very fragile.

They can often be very small (such as 2mm or smaller) and also have the advantage of lighting up very quickly when you want to use the application.
