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
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
