Beam angle

There's not really a standard way to measure beam angle, which unfortunately adds to the confusion. This is a value that should come from your LED datasheet, catalog page, or manufacturers specs. Values in the 15° to 30° range are common for 5mm and 3mm indicator-type LEDs. Other types can vary widely, so consult your datasheet. The value to look for is usually labeled 1/2.
