Product details

5mm LED Cover Red

Coloured covers for use with 5mm LEDs, which also serve to clip the LED onto the front panel. The cover increases the viewing angle to 180° and gives a finished appearance. It has a flat top marked with Fresnel rings and striated lines for maximum light dispersion. The 5mm covers simply clip into a 6.35mm (1/4in.) panel cut-out. The LED then clips in from the rear.

5mm Types:
Suitable for 1.6mm to 3.2mm panel thickness
Overall diameter: 7mm
Overall length: 11mm
