I'll need a lot (~40-50) of bulbs to get my D&RG (all conventional) layout up and running. After looking at peoples posts, and online availability, the per bulb sticker-shock hit me. So, I'm looking to "Roll-my-own" LED replacement Lights for 022 switch/controllers, accessories lights, etc. I'm looking at making an overseas purchase of parts (50 each).
Do these look like appropriate values?
Bridge Rectifier 40V 1A $0.06
Capacitor 10uF 25V $0.007
Resistor Carbon film 1K Ohm 1W $0.01
Resistor Carbon Film 560 Ohm 1W $0.01
Green LED 5mm through-hole $0.04
White LED 5mm $0.08
Red LED, didn't find a 5mm on this site, but they are on Amazon.
These parts work out to about 13-17 cents each if I picked proper values.
[Granted, these won't be in the compact ba9s or s9s bulb base (I'm NOT buying 10K minimum order) empty bulb bases to do these in. Hand-soldered will work I think. LOL]
I've seen a number of posts for TVS diodes, would this be appropriate for my layout? (since I'm running conventional, I don't need these?)
TVS Diode I don't really understand these values, maybe one of you do?:
Type Number, Reverse StandOff Voltage,BreakdownVoltage Min.@IT, TestCurrent,MaximumClampingVoltage@IPP,PeakPulseCurrent,
(UNI) (BI) VRWM(V) VBR MIN.(V) VBR.MAX.(V) IT(mA) VC(V) IPP(A) IR(µA)
1.5KE36A 1.5KE36CA 30.80 34.20 37.80 1 49.9 30.5 5
Any comments or suggestions for different parts will be greatly appreciated.
