We incorporated among standard stock types the dot matrix LED display Kingbright TC12-11 with the height of 30.6mm. Hyper red color (630nm) and a high luminous intensity provide a contrast image.

TC12-11SRWA with 5x7 dots can be conveniently used especially in indoor applications, where it will provide an excellent readability at various ambient light conditions. Display can also be used for outdoor applications, excluding places on a direct sunlight, where the display legibility can be substantially decreased.
High light output, typically 82mCd/10mA and white diffused lens ensure a very good visibility even from higher viewing angles. Display features almost a linear luminous intensity / current characteristics in a range from 0 to 20mA, that´s why it is fully usable even for low power applications. Similarly like almost all dot matrix displays, even TC12-11 is designed in a way that when placed in a row, we will obtain a continuous row with homogenous spacing between dots. That´s why it is possible to display even symbols wider than 5 points and naturally a moving text.
TC12-11 has a common cathode (in a column), available are also versions with a common anode (in a row) and also various colour versions.
