LED 3mm Bipolar-Color Red/Green Diffused – 2 leads


SKU: LED-3RG-2 Categories: ,


Current limiting resistor needed in series with one lead. When connected directly to DCC voltage, Litchfield Station, LLC recommends a 750 to 1500 ohm resistor The lower the resistor value, the brighter the light, but the shorter the life of the LED. With a 1000 ohm resistor, expect a life of about 5000 illuminated hours (over 6 months of 24 hours a day, every day).


  • 3 mm nominal diameter (T1 size)

These LEDs, also known as bidirectional, are great to use as an indicator with Tortoise motors. They show which direction the current is flowing in the Tortoise!
