What are the LED lights?
A semiconductor is a substance that conducts current, and a diode is a semiconductor that conducts current only in one direction. A diode thus becomes a substance that conducts current fairly well only in one direction. To make LED lights, a suitable and heavily doped semiconductor is connected to power. It will emit monochromatic light. Basically, not much light is emitted and today's LED light will thus almost always have some device that controls the light in the direction you want. The first LEDs came on the market in the sixties. They were relatively dim and often red. These diodes were used as indicator lights for, among other things, household appliances.
What are the benefits of LED lighting?
There are several benefits to LED lighting. LED technology continues to evolve and now meets a multitude of needs. A light-emitting diode refers to an electronic component used to transform electricity into light. Today, it is used in various fields: mobile electronics, the automotive industry, the manufacture of screens as well as signage and lighting. Without LED lighting, many modern solutions wouldn’t exist. For example, smartphones using led screens save battery because the brightness of the screen is a major source of energy consumption.
LED technology is also widely used in the automotive industry. It is finally found in heaps of consumer products, from your phone to your mouse through light panels. Regularly, new variants of LEDs appear in order to find new applications for this innovation.
How to choose a holder for LED?
To choose a suitable holder for your LED, you must take into consideration such aspects as
the size of your LED (diameter of its body), the material of the shell, the installation method
(in a panel or printed circuit Board). There are metal and plastic LED holders. Plastic holders are more popular because they are easy to install. At Botland.store, you will find a large selection of diverse LED holders. We guarantee that all our products are made from high-quality materials, and thus they will meet all your needs and expectations. If you don’t know, which LED holder will be a good solution for your project, don’t hesitate to contact us! Our professional advisers will be happy to help you.
Mounting a LED holder to a circuit board
LED holders can differ from each other according to their design and objective. The most popular LED holders have the shape of a cylinder with a diameter corresponding to the size of the LEDs. This kind of product usually has two holes through which terminals can be dragged.
LED holders are necessary in some projects, for example, when you want to install a line of several LEDs, and each of them should have equal distance from the plate.
