LEDtronics announces an expanded line of Infrared (IR) LED (Light Emitting Diode)
Lamps, which provide the illumination needed by infrared-sensitive equipment to
capture clear images in total darkness or low-light conditions.
Price: Prices for Infrared LED Lamps range from $30.00 - $300.00 each in quantity
of 1,000 depending on the diode technology, number of LEDs and lamp model. Availability
is stock to 4 – 6 weeks.
TORRANCE, CA — December 6, 2002 — LEDtronics® announces its
newest line of Infrared Discrete LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that fulfill the
demand for high-powered, high-speed emitters in wireless connectivity, imaging
systems and analysis equipment. These LEDs use advanced semi-conductor compounds
to produce infrared emissions in the wavelengths of 850nm, 880nm and 940nm.
Sizes available are T1 (3mm), T1-3/4 (5mm) and SMT (3.4mm x 8mm). T1 (3mm) and
T13/4 (5mm) LEDs come with strong leads that hold up to the stress of wire-wrap
and through-hole applications. The SMT model is packaged in a plastic housing
that allows infrared functionality to be incorporated into miniature-sized electronic
devices. The T1 model has an 18°-angle of emission. T1-3/4 infrared LEDs
are available in two emission angles: (1) 40° medium and (2) 20° standard.
The SMT model has an emission angle of 120°. IR LEDs extend the functionality
of unmanned transportation systems, further interactive communication between
remote devices, and strengthen the impervious nature of fiber optic systems.
Infrared LEDs are ideal light sources for use with night vision goggles, surveillance
cameras, medical imaging, recognition and calibration systems. Due to their
resistance to ambient-light impediments and electromagnetic interference (EMI),
Infrared LEDs enhance the performance of wireless computer-to-PDA links, collision
avoidance systems, automation equipment, biomedical instrumentation, telecommunications
equipment. Solid-state design renders Infrared 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), Infrared LEDs operate
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 LED Lamps,
low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LED Lamps, 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 Infrared Discrete LEDs range from $0.26 - $1.87 each in quantity
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. For additional information on how to incorporate Infrared
