Super Bright SpiderLED High Flux Lamp Now Available

Torrance, CA – April 1, 1999 – LEDtronics announces the availability of the SpiderLED™ high-flux, super-bright LED. Sunlight visible, SpiderLED™ has a lumen intensity of 450 at 30mA to 1650 at 70mA. SpiderLED™’s heat-sinking lead frame design dissipates heat away from the chip four times faster then standard discrete LEDs. This results in a high-flux, super bright LED package.

With an average life span of 11 years, SpiderLEDTM far outlasts any incandescent lamp, making it the perfect solution for maintenance-intensive lighting applications such as an automobile’s third brake light, PCB mounted back-lit signs, emergency lights and status indicators in square- and round-panel mount lenses. With its brightness and durability, a wide variety of industries and applications ranging from automotive and avionics to tele/data communication, decorative edge lighting, perimeter lighting on trucks and trailers, and display manufacturers would all benefit from incorporating the compact SpiderLED into their product design and manufacturing processes.

SpiderLED™’s low profile (4.4mm height and 7.62mm square) and efficient optical design eliminates the large surface area necessitated by incandescent lamps or the need to cluster discrete LEDs. Multiple SpiderLEDs can be arranged to fit both small and large illumination requirements. By using different lenses and viewing angles SpiderLED provides 3-D illumination. SpiderLED™ features high-current capabilities and operates between 20mA and 70mA.

SpiderLED™’s solid-state design makes it an outstanding solution for applications subject to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. It has a low thermal-resistant package and functions within the temperature range of -40° C to +85° C. A water-clear lens enables a high-intensity light to emit, delivering excellent visibility and color definition while using only a fraction of the power that an incandescent of similar luminosity requires. Ideal for applications requiring 60° or 85° viewing angles, SpiderLEDTM is available in Ultra Red, Hyper Red, Orange, Amber and Yellow.

SpiderLED™ shines in automotive applications (e.g., turn signals, side markers and brake lights). With instantaneous high-intensity illumination, SpiderLED™ gives the motorist approximately one-fifth more response time than an incandescent bulb provides. At 55 mph, that’s an additional 15 feet of stopping distance, resulting in a larger safety zone between cars and less rear-end collisions.

Samples are available to qualified customers. Pricing is $0.46 each in quantities of 5,000. Production lead-time is four to six weeks. SpiderLED™s are supplied in a tube for use with automatic pick-and-place manufacturing systems.
