LEDtronics announces new, low profile, right-angled surface mount LEDs - the Series
SML070 LEDs. With the tiny footprint of only 2.4mm x 3.3mm, these discrete LEDs
are ideal for placement on PCBs where components are densely packed.
They come in a one-color version and a bi-color version. Single-colored LEDs
available are Yellow (590nm) and High Efficiency Green (570nm) and High Efficiency
Red (620nm), all have clear lenses.
Bicolor LEDs come in the combination of High Efficiency Green/High Efficiency
Red with a milky-white lens. Depending on the color, luminous intensities range
from 1.2 mcd to 2.3 mcd at 20 mA current.
Use the Series SML070 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 SML070 LEDs effective tools
in cutting costs in PCB assembly while maintaining product integrity. Series
SML070 LEDs broaden the illumination options available for back lighting computer
panels, handheld instruments, data- and tele-communication status indicators,
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.
The Series SML070 Right-Angled SMT LEDs are priced at $0.95 each for single
color and $1.42 each for bicolor, quantity discounts are available. Ask for
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 (IR) LEDs.
LED lamps last 30 - 50 times longer that the incandescent lamps they replace,
and their low-current, high-efficiency operation delivers power savings of 80%
- 90% or more. Additionally, LED lamps produce little or no heat resulting in
lighted panels and switches that are cool-to-the-touch unlike those lit by incandescent
lamps. LED technology with its inherent energy efficiency makes an excellent
accompaniment to photovoltaic-based energy systems. With an average life span
of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably year after year and
are virtually maintenance free.
