Full-colour Light Emitting Diode (LED)

This high-brightness 5mm diameter LED in a clear package contains three LED chips — red, green and blue. It has built-in current-limiting resistors so that it can be powered from a 5V DC supply, consuming around 15mA per colour.

You can connect it directly to your Arduino/Genuino Uno or Mega, or a breadboard, without soldering using the pins attached to the leads, and then control it from MECControl.

Connections

The red, green and blue leads may be connected to any of the digital pins on your Arduino/Genuino Uno or Mega, labelled 2-13 on the Uno and 2-53 on the Mega.

However, if you wish to control the brightness of your LEDs, they must be connected to digital pins 3, 5, 6, 9, 10 or 11 on the Uno or digital pins 2-13 or 44-46 on the Mega.

The white lead should be connected to 5V.

Lead length options

Lead lengths of approximately 50cm, 1m or 1.5m are available.
