TORRANCE, CA — December 30, 2002 — LEDtronics® announces its new line of Ultraviolet Discrete LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that enable sophisticated chemical analysis, forensic investigation, quality assurance, document authentication, etc. . . .. These LEDs incorporate advanced semi-conductor compounds to produce ultraviolet emissions in the wavelengths of 370nm, 390nm, 395nm, 400nm, 405nm and 410nm. These T13/4 (5mm) LEDs come with sturdy leads for steadfastness in wire-wrap and through-hole applications. UV LEDs are available in narrow and wide emission angles. Low power consumption, solid state design and compact size enable UV LEDs to be incorporated into portable devices for crime scene investigators, forensic specialists, public health officials that need to identify bodily fluids, contaminants, chemicals, and vermin infestations.

Ultraviolet LEDs are ideal light sources for immigration agencies, nightclubs or amusement parks that need to control admission, identify forgeries and detect unauthorized entry. UV LEDs may also be used medical analysis, gems appraisal, pharmaceutical and biological equipment and calibration systems. UV LEDs can also be used for curing polymers, adhesives and inks. Mechanics, line inspectors and plumbers will like being able to see leaks. Potential applications for the UV LEDs include solid-state white light conversion, high-density optical storage, advanced sensors for satellites, planes and ground stations. Solid-state design renders Ultraviolet 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), UV LEDs operate reliably year after year.

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 LED circuit board status indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.

Prices for Ultraviolet Discrete LEDs range from $0.17 - $2.04 each in quantities of 1,000 depending on the technology. Availability is stock to 4 - 6 weeks for special requirements. For qualified customers, samples are available to meet your design requirements.
