TORRANCE, CA — June 9, 2004 — LEDtronics® announces Concave Cylindrical 5mm (T1-3/4) Discrete LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes)
that emit light that is as bright at its edges as it is in the center.
Concave lenses improve the quality of the light beam by spreading out
the collimated beam of light that LEDs typically emit. These high-intensity
LEDs produce illumination that is bright even in direct sunlight, making
them excellent sources of illumination for applications such as backlighting,
medical equipment and illuminating channel letters. Sturdy leads are
provided for wire wrap applications. Select from six sunlight-visible
colors: Green (525nm and 568nm), Cool White (8000K), Blue (461nm), Yellow
(596nm and 585nm), Red (655nm, 660nm and 630nm) and Orange (606nm).
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical
shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With
an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably
year after year and are appropriate for many applications. They can be
used as individual pixels in a large dot matrix screen, full color screens,
moving signs and displays. More diverse applications for LEDs include
light sources for scanners used in color copiers, spectral analysis,
high-speed document reading and color synthesis. Other applications include
medical imaging and biomedical instrumentation, telecommunications equipment,
machine vision systems, and color recognition and calibration systems – any
application that requires a bright, reliable LED.
Founded in 1983, LEDtronics® leads where others only follow when
it comes to designing, manufacturing and packaging state-of-the-art LEDs
to meet the world’s constantly changing lighting needs. Our inventive
product line encompasses an array of direct incandescent lamp replacement
Based LEDs, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LEDs, high intensity
sunlight-visible Discrete LEDs, PCB LEDs circuit board status indicators,
surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs, and Infra-Red
Prices for 5mm (T1¾) Concave Cylindrical Discrete LEDs range from
$0.17 - $0.74 each in quantities of 1,000 depending on the LED technology
