Is this suitable for use as an infra-red illuminator when used in a quantity? I have an infra-red illuminator for use on survellance equipment and for some reason several of the LED''s have blown and would like to repair or completely renew all of the damaged units. The operating voltage is 9vdc and as far as i can see, they are wired in series.

Is the 3mm Infrared Emitting Diode suitable for repairing remote controls - my tv remote has stopped working and it appears to be the infrared diode that is causing the problem.

Yes the product does support that.
