Tri-colour 5 mm LED in a diffused package. Red and green diodes are connected in a common cathode and both diodes connected together produce a third colour.
These LEDs DO require a series resistor which is not included, but are available separately. The resistors listed below are the minimum required for safe operation.
If operating from a 9v DC supply use 270R Model Number 228-505 carbon film resistor.
If operating from a 12v DC supply use 390R Model Number 228-506 carbon film resistor.
If operating from a 16v DC supply use 560R Model Number 228-509 carbon film resistor.
Wiring of these LEDs is as follows
Short terminal: Anode Green
Medium terminal: Anode red
Long terminal: Common cathode
Sold individually so you only buy what you need.
