GREEN IS SIGNAL GREEN

As with their white and warm-white brothers above, these 3mm radial-lead LEDs provide very high intensity and very long life. The red, yellow blue and signal green LEDs have diffused (colored) cases for easy recognition, while the orange LED has a water-clear case.

All of the colors match exactly all of our other colored LEDs producing the same wavelength outputs. The red, yellow and green are perfect for signal lighting in larger scales because of their color output and are easily adaptable to larger (O and G) scales due to their very high brightness. They are all 20ma LEDs and complete specifications can be found by clicking on the Specifications link in the More Info table above.

Finally!  Following many customer requests, we are now stocking 3mm LEDs. After reviewing and testing several manufacture's products we have selected sources that provide excellent quality consistency, high intensity output and very long (average 100,000 hour) life.


These LEDs are housed in a clear epoxy cases with pre-tinned leads exiting radially (out the bottom of the case). The leads can easily be reformed to conform to available space requirements needed for a particular application. While the frontal viewing angle is a relatively narrow 25-35 degrees, their intensity and light dispersion make them very easy to see. As with any LED, they can be dimmed if required by adjusting the value of a current limiting resistor.


The white is a very pure white and the warm-white is very warm yellowish-white with no pink coloration. Because of their size and flat face, the warm-white is an excellent choice for locomotive headlight applications including N scale.

Smaller than the standard 3mm LEDs,these tiny axial-lead LEDs have incredibly high light output and provide exactly the same spectral colors are our other red, yellow and signal green LEDs. 

They are housed in a clear epoxy case with pre-tinned leads exiting axially (out either side of the case). These leads can easily be reformed to conform to available space requirements needed for a particular application. While the frontal viewing angle is a relatively narrow 20 degrees, their intensity and light dispersion make them easy to see. As with any LED, they can be dimmed if required by adjusting the value of a limiting resistor.

Ideal for marker lights in larger scales, panel and signal lighting, or anywhere that extra intensity is needed.
We've been waiting a long time for the technology to be developed that would produce and incandescent LED in Nano size. The time has arrived, and the output color has the same appearance as our 2x3 Super-Incandescent LED with high brightness as well.

Z-Scale enthusiasts: It looks like a filament bulb, but has the long, long life (and no heat) of an LED!.

Don't let its tiny size fool you, this little fellow is amazingly bright. The white color output color is very pure (non-bluish). Just like our other LEDs, the housing can be painted as required (using acrylics) to control shine direction. The solder pads are gold plated.

Z-Scale enthusiasts: Here's a bright light source that is small enough to fit your applications. Check out the Compare size link above.

Colors are true (red is ruby, green is pure, not yellow-green, blue is very blue and extremely bright). Great for marker lights, signals, traffic lights, flashing emergency lights on vehicles, airport taxiways, let your imagination go wild! Our Signal Green Micro is very bright with a spectral output that exactly matches traffic and railroad green block signals. Our new Micro Orange has many uses. Click on the Why Orange link in the More Info table above to find out more.

LED brightness can be reduced/matched by varying associated resistor values. Click here for details.

If used in a hobby environment, these White LEDs are intended for INDIRECT VIEWING! With an luminous output of 300 lumens that is equivalent to approximately 600,000 mcd (millicandellas). Prolonged direct viewing at that level of brightness can cause damage to the eyes. The 130 lumen Incandescent version is also incredibly bright and can cause potential damage to the eyes if viewed directly for a prolonged period.

 

Having said that, there are certain applications in RC and general lighting for very large scales that this product call be very useful. The T-10 size "bulb" is mounted inside a rubber base socket that is commonly used in the automotive industry. Power wires are included and these LEDs are rated for 12-volt DC operation.

 

These LEDs are perfect for any situation that requires a very bright flood of light. One of our newest products, NK030 Lightning Effect Kit (intended for use with our N8502-030 Thunderstorm Little Bigger Sounds) uses these white LEDs to create the lightning flashes. The effect is very realistic.

These tiny LEDs are very pure in color. Perfect for the smallest details with a footprint of only 3 X 6 N-Scale inches! The possibilities are endless.

Our Signal Green Nano is very bright with a spectral output that exactly matches traffic and railroad green block signals. Our new Nano Orange perfectly simulates the color of hot coals.

Z-Scale
enthusiasts: Now you can create traffic and block signals, emergency, hazard, EOT, and other lighting without being grossly over scale. These LEDs have a footprint of only 4-1/2 X 9 Z-Scale inches!

Our new 1015A is VERY BRIGHT (800 mcd) and has replaced the earlier N1015

 

These 5mm high intensity LEDs have a very low-profile clear capsule, but unlike most 5mm LEDs, they also has a very wide (130) viewing angle. The spectral color output is exactly the same as our other LEDs so they are ideal for many different applications. For RC applications, they have a waterproof capsule which can be very advantageous.

 

N1058 Warm-white:

This LED is produces a very warm white color with extremely high intensity output. It is excellent for the interior illumination of larger structures where the LED can be positioned to flood light down and across the interior for indirect lighting applications. It is also excellent for locomotive head-lighting in the larger, O and G scales. In RC applications it is a waterproof capsule. If an application requires a reduced level of brightness, like all LEDs, this can be achieved by increasing the (ohms) value of the series connected current limiting resistor.

 

N1052 Red:

This LED is very high intensity and is an excellent choice for large scale projects or situations that have high ambient light. When viewed indirectly, it produces a very large flood of red light that can be used for background glow in steel mills and large furnaces. An excellent marker light for garden scale rolling stock.

 

N1053 Yellow:
In furnace, forge, sawdust burner, and steel mill projects this LED produces excellent flooding of fire-colored light. Several of these connected to our booster board (N8103) and driven by either our Forge Simulator (N8046) or our Campfire Simulator (N8047), or both, will create a dazzling effect in projects for even the larger O and G scales For G scale, it is perfect for a locomotive roof beacon.

 
In the smaller scales, one or two of these LEDs will completely light up a burning structure or a steel mill.

Identical in physical appearance to our Micro Super-white and Yellow-white LEDs, this LED produces a output color that exactly matches our new Nano Super-Incandescent LEDs and has very high brightness. It also matches our 2x3 Incandescent series of LEDs, rounding out our various LED sizes with a common spectral output that is essentially that of a typical tungsten filament bulb. Ideal for any application that requires the appearance of incandescent lighting with the advantages of the extreme long life and thermal coolness of an LED.
Identical in physical appearance to our Micro Super-white, this LED produces a uniquely yellow-white very warm light and very high intensity. Its distinctive color output is ideal for those lighting situations that call for a flood or glow of warm light. Some examples would be steam-era locomotive and passenger car lighting, non-commercial structure interior lighting, early-era gas light and incandescent lighting, older streetlights. The N1015A version is our newest with the same color but much higher (almost 3 times) intensity. The original N1015 has been phased-out as a product and has been replaced with the N1015A.
