  • Just for reference, this does work with the Sparkfun Mini Photocell. Works great as a laser break-beam sensor (enclosure blocks out external light very well).

  • it’d be great if you could make one of these for a RGB LED, because one of the parts only has two holes for an led.

  • Great price! I’ve used these before and they are a nice indicator that’s easy to install (just drill a hole in your enclosure). However they are not good for outdoor use as they tend to collect water in the concave holder and let it drip into your enclosure. It would be nice to see outdoor rated LED indicators in the < $2 range.

    • In order to weatherise: a) fill the translucent cup/plug with silicone and insert the LED before it dries, then trim the excess b) thoroughly smear the outside of the cup/plug with silicone and insert it into the chromed piece before the silicone dries c) stop by your friendly neighbourhood hardware store and pick up a rubber or neoprene washer and install it between the nylon nut and the panel

      I also recommend checking out oznium.com. It’s a site that has a great selection of specialty LEDs and related products not found here at SparkFun. It’s focused mainly on automotive applications but nearly everything could be used elsewhere, although some things are prewired for 12V. There are a number of modules which are waterproof out of the box.

  • These are awesome, but they stick out a bit too far from any panel. Any chance of getting a recessed version that is very low profile? Would make an awesome mount for indicators on a flight-panel.
