July 7, 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.
The LEDs 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.
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,
says LEDtronics. Sturdy leads are provided for wire wrap applications. Select
from six sunlight-visible colors: Green, Cool White, Blue, Yellow, Red, and
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.
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 and color.
