Neat 120-240V chunky LED panel indicator light
Clive does his usual teardown of the lights and improvises a circuit diagram to show how the lights are wired up internally. All accompanied by his typical knowledgeable observations and humour.
By popular request, a look at the chunky panel indicators I used on the generator changeover switch video. These ones came from this eBay listing:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371713535356
They have a wide range of indicators, but keep in mind they are probably aimed at the Chinese industrial market and may not comply with local standards.
These indicators will work on a wide voltage range but will be dimmer at lower voltage. If the internal capacitor is shorted out the indicators will work on 12V-24V DC if the existing internal resistor is 1200 ohm half watt as it is in this indicator.
If you enjoy these videos you can help support the channel with a dollar for coffee, cookies and random gadgets for disassembly at:- http://www.bigclive.com/coffee.htm
This also keeps the channel independent of YouTube’s advertising algorithms allowing it to be a bit more dangerous and naughty.
