LED displays are small displays, lit by LED (light emitting diode) technology, which are designed to be mounted to a panel or PCB connector. LED Displays provide illumination as well as visual display solutions for indoor and outdoor use across a broad range of industries.
Types of LED display:
There are numerous types of LED Display solutions available dependant on amount of brightness required and quantity of lighting technology needed.
- Segmented Displays (for example 7-segment and 14-segment) consist of sections which, when lit, create numbers and/or letters. You would find 7-segment displays in technology such as calculators and digital alarm clocks.
- Dot Matrix consist of multiple dots which, when lit, create numbers, letters, symbols and images. The higher the number of dots, the more detailed symbols you can create. More basic dot matrix displays are ideal for message board displays.
- Light Bars consist of single or multiple sections that light up. They are usually square or rectangular and used for status indicators or to highlight icons on a display.
