The world has been moving towards automation rapidly. Indicator lamps are a crucial part of any automation process. They are generally used for notification of onset and termination of a process. They can also be used for indication of any intermediate process or flash warnings. To make this process energy efficient, these days in most places LED indicator lamps are used. A light-emanating diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that transmits visible light when an electric current goes through it. The light is not especially bright, but rather in many LEDs it is monochromatic, happening at a single wavelength. The yield from a LED can go from red (at a wavelength of around 700 nanometers) to blue-violet (around 400 nanometers). A few LEDs produce infrared (IR) vitality (830 nanometers or more); such a gadget is known as an infrared-transmitting diode (IRED). A LED or IRED comprises of two components of prepared material called P-type semiconductors and N-type semiconductors. These components when I direct contact form a P-N intersection. LED indicator lamps are preferred over other indicator because it has low power consumption, longer life, high efficiency, resistance to shock and vibration and cool operation. LED indicator lamps have some disadvantages, majorly, Moderate viewing angle, higher initial cost and the leakage current can cause lamp to stay ON. LEDs do undergo a progressive abatement in yield as they age. Manufacturer consider such lights to have achieved the finish of their helpful lives when the brilliance tumbles to half of its original value. It is by and large acknowledged that the human eye will just notice a diminishment in brilliance after half.
