Rolling Meadows, Ill. L-3 Communications, Electrodynamics Inc. has developed a new rugged panel mount LED status indicator for applications in severe environments. Designed with a solid-front design for a watertight seal, the new ML2030E series can be used as a status indicator in applications such as aircraft avionics systems, communications systems, test equipment, medical electronics systems, and other electronics systems.
The company said this new device is ideal for applications where commercial grade components are not suitable. The ML2030E features a panel seal that is accomplished by means of a one-piece aluminum housing and bezel with a silicone o-ring. It's packaged in a clear chromate finished body and has a black anodized front bezel.
An EMI screen is included as a standard feature. The dual finish case provides a conductive surface for EMI protection and a black finish for integration into the surface of a panel. The terminals can be either straight leads or solder loops although wire leads and connectors can be added in custom configurations.
Standard display colors are red, yellow, and green with the option of a diffused or non-diffused output. Other options available include bi-color LEDs, as well as NVIS compatible, sunlight readable, and IR-secure filtering to meet aerospace and military specifications.
Environmental specifications include test and verification for vibration, shock, humidity, altitude, and salt spray consistent with military, aerospace, and other high-reliability applications. The ML2030E operates in a wide temperature range of -55°C to 100°C (-20°C to 100°C for green).
Standard configurations are priced at approximately $20. Delivery is six weeks.
