Do you need a simple light indication or a maybe some backlighting for your projects? Why not try this LED module? It’s easy to work with and extremely easy to use - no soldering, no small components, no confusion. Nothing needs to be set up, everything is ready for you to use!
This LED module contains a very bright LED. Therefore, these LED modules can be used not only for display, but maybe as an audio visualizer, a traffic light, garlands for your Christmas tree, or even a mood lamp.
Super bright LEDs draw more current than what microcontrollers can supply directly. Therefore, this LED module has a transistor on board, through which the LED is controlled. This also means that the module is compatible with signals at 5 V and at 3.3 V.
This module can be neatly placed on the front panel of your device, secured with M3 screws.
Caution! These LED modules are very bright so do not look at them directly as it may harm your eyes.
Connect the module via 3-pin jumper cable. The 3-pin jumper cables needed for the connection are included in the kit.
There are several different ways to wire this module:
Troyka Shield. The most straightforward method. Connect the module to a pin group on Troyka Shield with the 3-pin jumper cable and you’re ready to interface with it from your Arduino.
Troyka Slot Shield. The best choice for quick prototyping. Using slots on the shield, you can get rid of cables. The module will be held securely in place using both pin headers.
Breadboard. For advanced use. Troyka pin headers have 0.1” spacing which is compatible with any breadboard. Simply wire the module like you would do with any IC.
