Illumination Examples The following image gives you an idea of how the LED illuminates each color individually, and all three together. This version of the LED has a diffused lens, so it produces relatively softer light than a clear lens would, but with minimal difference in intensity across a wide viewing angle. Compare this to the more intense but more directional light of the clear version to determine which is best for your application.
