Concave cylindrical 5 mm (T1-3/4) discrete light emitting diodes (LEDs) are said
to emit light that is as bright at its edges as it is in the center. These high-intensity
LEDs produce illumination that is bright even in direct sunlight, targeting the
components for use in applications such as backlighting and medical equipment.
Sturdy leads reportedly are provided for wire wrap applications. Six sunlight-visible
colors are available: green, cool white, blue, yellow, red and orange.
New Concave LEDs Answer the Need for Light Beams of Even Brightness Throughout
TORRANCE, CA — June 18, 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 channel-letter
illumination. 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 (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.
