How to Wire LED Indicator Lights?

What is LED Indicator Light?

FILN is an indicator light manufacturer and has been in the industry for 15 years. FILN believes that LED indicator light is an indication device that uses LED light-emitting diodes as the light-emitting element of the indicator light.

In the indicator light industry, LED is a semiconductor component that converts electrical energy into visible light. And LED color can also be customized, the market is currently common when the red, green, yellow, blue and white.

Most of FILN’s customers purchase LED indicators for electronic equipment, automobiles, home appliances and other products to display the status of equipment, operating instructions or warning information.

LED Indicators Have the Following Characteristics:

FILN LED indicator light can be divided into two kinds, one is the non-polarity LED indicator light, the other is the level of LED indicator light.

Non-polar LED indicator light: refers to the LED inside two chips, if you buy this kind of FILN non-polar indicator light, then DC 12V LED indicator light is no positive and negative points, you can be connected to the line regardless of positive and negative when the power is disconnected.

Graded LED indicator light: the connection of this type of indicator light is a little more complicated, if you buy a 24V FILN indicator light, then you must first prepare a voltage multimeter to test the positive and negative LED; then connect the positive line of the 24v indicator light to the positive line of the device, and the negative line to the negative line of the device Then connect the positive line of 24v indicator light to the positive line of the device and the negative line to the negative line of the device.

When the indicator light is disconnected, then turn on the power switch, when the LED indicator light is on, it means that the line is normal and the indicator light can start working normally.

Features Description
Energy Efficiency FILN utilizes high-quality LED chips, which have higher energy conversion efficiency compared to traditional incandescent bulbs or fluorescent lamps. They produce more light while consuming less electricity.
Longevity LEDs generally have a longer lifespan, lasting for tens of thousands of hours. This is significantly longer compared to traditional bulbs, reducing the frequency and cost of replacements.
Versatility LED indicator lights can emit different colors of light according to requirements, such as red, green, blue, and can also generate other colors by combining different-colored LEDs. FILN also supports the production of dual-color and tri-color indicator lights.
Quick Response LED indicator lights can turn on or off quickly, making them suitable for applications that require rapid response, such as indicating device status or warning signals.
Compact Size LEDs are small in size and can be made into thin structures. LED indicator lights can be designed in a compact form, adapting to various product installation needs. FILN offers indicator lights in sizes ranging from 6mm to 30mm.
Common Applications LED indicator lights are commonly used for power indication, charging indication, network connection status indication, device operation status indication, and more. They provide reliable indication functionality while offering advantages such as energy efficiency, longevity, and versatility.

How to Wire LED Indicator Lights?

Non-polarized LED indicator wiring method:

Non-polarized LED indicators, also known as dual-color LED indicators, have two chips inside the LED. These chips are connected in parallel, which means they can be connected to a DC power source, such as a 12V battery, without having to worry about polarity. This makes them very easy to install, as you can connect them to any positive or negative line.

Graded LED indicator light wiring method:

Polarized LED indicators, on the other hand, have a specific polarity that needs to be taken into account when wiring them. These lights need to be wired correctly to work properly. For example, a 24V LED indicator may need to be wired with a specific polarity in order to work properly.

To wire a polarized LED indicator, you will need to follow these steps:

Use a multimeter to determine the polarity of the LED indicator. Connect the red probe of the multimeter to the anode (positive) terminal of the LED and the black probe to the cathode (negative) terminal of the LED.

Once you have determined the polarity, connect the positive wire of the LED indicator to the positive wire of the power supply. Then, connect the negative wire of the LED indicator to the negative wire of the power supply.

Turn on the power supply, and if the LED indicator lights up, you have wired it correctly. However, if it does not light up, you may want to reverse the polarity of the LED or check if there are any wiring problems.

When wiring the LED indicator, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and any safety guidelines provided. Always be sure to turn off the power and use the proper tools and equipment to prevent any electrical hazards before attempting any wiring.
