5mm Flat Top Wide Angle Orange / Amber Led – Wide Angle



The 5mm Flat Top Wide Angle Orange/Amber LED is an electronic component that emits light in the orange or amber color spectrum. It is commonly used in various electronic applications, especially in projects where a wide-angle illumination is required. Here’s a detailed description of its key features:

  1. Size: The LED has a standard 5mm (0.2 inches) diameter, making it easy to mount on PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) or other electronic circuits.

  2. Flat Top: Unlike some LEDs that have a rounded or domed top, this LED has a flat emitting surface. This design allows for a wider dispersion of light, enabling it to cover a broader viewing angle.

  3. Wide Angle: As the name suggests, this LED has a wide-angle emission pattern. It means the light it emits spreads out over a larger area compared to regular LEDs, providing better coverage and visibility.

  4. Color: The LED emits light in the orange or amber color range. This specific color is often used for indicator lights, warning signals, or decorative lighting purposes.

  5. Voltage and Current: The LED typically operates at a low voltage, commonly around 2 to 2.2 volts, and requires a current in the range of 15 to 25 milliamperes (mA) to function optimally.

  6. Longevity: LEDs are known for their longevity and energy efficiency. This 5mm Flat Top Wide Angle Orange/Amber LED can last for thousands of hours of continuous operation, making it a reliable choice for electronic projects.

  7. Applications: This type of LED is commonly used in various applications, such as automotive lighting, traffic signals, safety lights, electronic displays, signage, architectural lighting, and model making, among others.

It’s important to note that when using LEDs in electronic circuits, appropriate resistors should be used to limit the current flow and prevent damage to the LED due to excessive current. Additionally, caution should be exercised during soldering to avoid overheating the LED and compromising its functionality.
