Miniature bi-colour 5mm LED comprising two LEDs (Red/Green) connected in inverse parallel housed in a milky white package. Suitable for PCB or panel mount.
To change the colour you need to reverse the polarity of the led wiring.
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 470R Model Number 228-508 carbon film resistor.
If operating from a 16v DC supply use 560R Model Number 228-509 carbon film resistor.
Cathode or negative identified by shorter lead.
Sold individually so you only buy what you need.
