Panel Mount Indicator CapabilitiesCustomize colors, lenses, terminals, connectors, and more
Let VCC Tailor PMIs to Exactly What You Need
We can do it all in one place (bonus: it’s in North America!)
For 40+ years, VCC has earned its reputation as an industry leader in illuminated components. And panel mount indicators are one of our core offerings to clients around the world. For many clients, our robust selection of standard PMIs is more than enough to satisfy their requirements. But, if a modification to any indicator is needed, we deliver custom solutions you and your end-users can rely on while saving you time and production costs.
Let’s work together to customize your PMI by modifying the following features and beyond:
Single, Bi-color, or Tri-color LEDs
We offer several ways to get your unique PMI specifications met, including:
- Build Your Own Indicator option
- Minor modifications to existing indicators
- Fully customized PMI design
- Wire harnessing for standard or custom PMIs
No matter your product or application, we have the know-how, resources, and production capabilities to meet or exceed your requirements — and, more importantly, your expectations.
Build Your Own Panel Mount Indicator
We make it simple to customize your panel mount indicator in many ways with our Build Your Own Indicator option. Using a variety of cable assemblies, you can tweak everything from wire length to LED color and terminal to create the perfect fit for your device and application.
Build Your Own Indicator features include:
Available in 3mm, 5mm, or 10mm LEDs
1,000+ configurations available
Assortment of options for moisture resistanc
Fresnel rings allow for 360 viewing and high visibility
Ability to add multiple LED sockets to a single connector
Existing Product Tweaks + From Scratch Solutions
For products and applications outside the Build Your Own Indicator options, our experienced team can quickly help you identify which standard products to modify in the most efficient ways possible. Or, if a fully customized design is needed, we have the skills, equipment, and resources to execute those as well.
It all starts with a conversation to understand your unique needs.
- We ask the right questions early on in the process.
- We think through your entire production and assembly processes and look for opportunities to streamline production, simplify the interface, and reduce costs.
- We apply decades of industry knowledge in optical, electrical, and mechanical design to develop the ideal indicator(s) for your device.
Our multidisciplinary team is here to help you find the ideal panel mount indicator for your device. It’s about more than selling you a PMI — it’s about solving your design challenges in the most efficient and user-friendly ways possible.
