1206 Surface Mount LEDs
|Q:||What is the viewing angle of the 1206 led? - by John (Illinois)|
|A:||120 degrees, more info on this link: https://www.oznium.com/1206-smd-led#tech|
|Q:||Another question if the current LEDs are green with a forward v. Of 3.0 is there not a problem replacing them with the 2.0 reds? Will the reds just be brighter w/ the extra voltage ? - by Carter (Joplin, mo)|
|A:||The red would be brighter for a short while, and then quickly burn out from too much voltage.
If you want them to last, you'll need to use a resistor to drop the voltage.
|Q:||If I were to replace the factory LEDs in my 2004 Ford F-150 (window/door locks) is it as simple as desoldering the green lights and resoldering new reds? I assume the circuit boards already have the resistors built in. How are the 1206s connected to the board; I don't see drop in pins. Thanks in advance. - by Carter (Joplin, MO)|
|A:||Yes. De-solder and re-solder.
Not sure what you mean by drop in pins.
|Q:||I have a lexus with burned out gauge needles. What resistor(s) do I need. Do you sell them. How many of the 1206's per inch? - by Paul (San Francisco)|
|A:||Sorry, no idea.|
|Q:||this question was asked earlier , would you or have you considered selling
these as pre wired ? as the ones you offer are to big for my needs. thanks - by martin (england , uk)
|A:||We have not considered supplying these in a pre-wired version. If these are too big, making them pre-wired would make them bigger.|
|Q:||Item 1206 Surface Mount;;
Say 10 in series??, hooked to 12V, That woul be 12v/10= 1.2v to each w/ no resistor; OR AM I THINKING BACKWARDS???? Would they power up @ this voltage ? AND, How is the soldering done (is that a metal 'tab' on each end, or ??). Solder ONLY to board , or could wires be connected??? Thanks Kevin in Seattle,Wa. - by Kevin (Seattle Wa)
|A:||1.2 volts would not work for each LED. Every color is different. Solder on the tab - you can connect wires to these tabs.|
|Q:||I have herd that diferent color LEDs require different power. So can you replace green LEDs with red LEDs? - by Dan|
|Q:||Can these (or any of your surface mount leds) come prewired? I don't want to solder something that small. - by David (Henderson, NV)|
|A:||The surface Mount LED does, but this one doesn't. https://www.oznium.com/led-bolts-prewired-leds/prewired-surface-mount-led|
|Q:||can i use them outdoor? are they waterproof?|
|A:||If you seal the metal part with epoxy or silicone, they could be waterproof.
But you do realize these are quite tiny?
They are about 3.2 mm x 1.6 mm
|Q:||Do these leds require a resistor? - by Chris|
|A:||If you're hooking them up to 12 volts then you'd certainly want to use a resistor.|
|Q:||can those tiny leds that fit on a dime be hooked to a battery? I'm working on an art project, and I need light inside a dark box...can't rely on a plug or anything.|
|A:||Yes, they can be hooked up to a battery.|
|Q:||where do we get a power wire from|
|A:||Either use regular wire, or connect to a board that has a power source.|
|Q:||do these need a power source ? im sorry if its a stupid question, i dont know much about LED's or how to set them up|
|A:||No problem. Yes, they need a power source. That is what gives them power.|
