Panel Indicator Lights

03 July 2024

Panel Indicator lights are crucial components in various systems, used to convey information, status, or warnings through visual signals. They are essential in providing quick and clear feedback to operators and users.

Alan Butcher Components offer an extensive choice of panel indicator lights, many held in stock at our warehouse in Blandford, Dorset. Notably, we’ve recently introduced a new range of 8mm and 22mm LED panel indicator lights.

8mm LED panel indicator lights:
This range of small, 12 volt LED indicator lights are IP67 rated. The bright LED lamp will illuminate at both 12V and 24V. The stainless steel surround supports a domed indicator which looks highly attractive when mounted within a panel. These products are fitted with 150mm leads and the panel cut out is 8mm.

Colour Options: Red, Green, Amber, Blue, Yellow or White.

22mm LED indicator lights:
These 22mm LED panel lights are stylish and durable products. Rated IP65, they are highly suitable for applications within more challenging environments. They use excellent ABS material and a quality electroplating process which ensures they are not only robust but reliable.

The button raises less than 2mm above the panel and the polycarbonate silver surround adds to the aesthetic quality of the switch. This, along with the independent, bright LED illumination makes them a standout choice for any application.

2. Environment: Consider exposure to elements, temperature, and humidity.
3. Colour and Brightness: Ensure visibility and appropriate colour coding
4. Compatibility: Check voltage and current requirements.
5. Durability: Choose materials and design that withstand operational conditions.
6. Type of Lamp:

Incandescent Bulbs: Traditional type, less efficient, generates heat.
LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes): Energy-efficient, long lifespan, available in various colors.
Neon Lamps: 240V panel indicator lights typically use a neon lamp. They are more cost effect than LED versions but less efficient.
