Surface-Mount Indicators Bring Flexibility To PC-Board Layouts

The TV series indicators are designed to complement the company's popular surface-mount toggle, rocker, and pushbutton switches. They share the same case size and pin-out patterns, adding flexibility to pc-board designs with redundant pad layouts. They also suit new surface-mount pc-board indicator requirements. The indicator has a body size measuring 0.318 by 0.400 by 0.218 in., and a 0.181- by 0.200-in. bushing properly positions the indicator when it's used with any of the company's toggle, rocker, or pushbutton switches. The LED dome projects from the end of the bushing for a full 90° viewing angle. Typical forward voltage measures 2 V, and reverse voltage is 5 V minimum. TV indicator models are available in red, green, and yellow colors. They typically cost about $1.58 each in 1000-piece quantities.
