July 13, 2005 08:01 - SML5050RBG1K-TR low profile, surface mount full-spectrum
Red, Green, and Blue LEDs feature water clear lens that protects diode array from
electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching, and environmental
extremes. At 5.5 x 5.5 mm and with variable wavelengths, red (620–630 nm),
green (520–535 nm), and blue (460–475 nm) diodes offer viewing angle
of 120°. Luminous intensities range from 150–500 mcd at 20 mA current
and LEDs have average life span of 100,000+ hr.
Full-Spectrum Surface Mount RGB LED Provides High Intensity Colors
TORRANCE, CA - July 5, 2005 - LEDtronics introduces the SML5050RBG1K-TR - a low profile,
surface mount full-spectrum Red, Green and Blue LED (RGB
LED). These discrete LEDs provide excellent performance and terrific visibility
in a compact size of only 5.5mm x 5.5mm. The red, green and blue diodes emit
high-intensity light in a viewing angle of 120°. The red diode's wavelength
varies between a minimum of 620nm and a maximum 630nm. The wavelength of the
green diode is between a minimum of 520nm and a maximum of 535nm. Blue operates
between 460nm and 475nm. Depending on the color, luminous intensities range
from 150 mcd to 500 mcd at 20 mA current. A water clear lens protects the diode
Use SML5050RGB LEDs with LEDtronics OptiLED Light Pipes to simplify the spatial
relationship between the PCB and remote indicator illumination points. Light
pipes channel all of the LED-generated light to the exact location where the
light is required. Compatibility with infrared and vapor phase reflow soldering
processes and pick-and-place automated equipment make the Series SML5050RGB
LEDs effective tools in cutting costs in PCB assembly while maintaining product
integrity. Series SML5050 LEDs broaden the illumination options available for
back lighting computer panels, handheld instruments like PDAs, data- and tele-communication
status indicators, etc. 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 virtually maintenance free.
