LEDs have a much longer lifespan than other types of lighting, up to 20 years in some cases and LED lighting is also capable of displaying a broad spectrum of colours, which adds to their appeal in display environments. Although generally more expensive than conventional lighting, LED lighting will eventually pay off, and in the meantime, you will get less radiant heat production, longer bulb life, and you could even control them with your Smartphone.

Switches, buttons and keypads are the interface between your design and the user. More than any other component, your switch is the part of your design that your user will handle the most. This means it needs to be robust, attractive and pleasant to use. And in some applications, your switch needs to stand out. With their new QH series halo indicator, APEM have made this task a little easier.
