    Hi,
    Does anyone know where I can purchase some 3 color LED's? I worked with
    these once on a door control box and I cannot seem to find individual
    LEDs I need for another project. These LED's have 3 wire leads on them.
    One ground and 2 positives. If you put positive voltage on one lead you
    have green; the other lead you have red and both leads give you amber.
    Anyone know where I can find these?


    Thanks,

    Jim,
    I appreciate the link. The only LED I could find that met my criteria
    was a retangular shape LED. I need to mount this on a wall plate and am
    not sure how I would make a retangular hole. I did find some LEDs at
    radio shack that were 2 color. You have to reverse the polarity to
    change the color. The only way I could figure out a way to use those
    was with the help of a couple of relays. I am trying to make this
    circuit as simple as possible. What I am trying to do is give the
    customer a simple way of seeing if their door is unlocked or locked
    without having to go to the card reader or outside of the building to
    see. I wanted to make a green led when the door was unlocked and a red
    led when the door was locked. Do you have another suggestion to pull
    this off?

    Doug L,
    I found the LED I was looking for on the sight you suggested. I
    appreciate it.
