New Super Bright Blue LEDs Available In Many Innovative Packages

Torrance, CA — LEDtronics®, a world leader in LED Technology, announces a new family of high-efficiency, clearly visible in direct sunlight, Super Bright Blue LEDs. They are available in a wide variety of packages making them ideal for a host of applications including instrumentation, outdoor signs and control panel indication.

Designated as the B1K Series, these LEDs are based on a gallium nitrate semiconductor technology to produce bright blue (450nm) light. A typical B1K LED emits a luminous intensity of 1,000 mcd of flux and a luminous output of 1200 micro watts from only 20ma. of current (3.6V) with excellent color definition.

The Super Bright LEDs are shock and vibration resistant and tolerate temperature extremes. They perform especially well in applications where reliable bright light from low-powered resources is required. Their excellent visibility and ruggedness make them ideal for many applications which may be outdoors or in brightly-lit environments.

The LEDs are available as T1 (3mm) and T1 3/4 (5mm) to be used in a variety of packages, however, these parts are not available in discrete form. Designated as either the BP150CWB1K-040 (3mm) or BP280CWB1K-3.6vf-050T (5mm), these LEDs are available in both narrow viewing angle (15 degree) and wide viewing angle (50 degree) versions.

The Super Bright Blue LEDS are also available as direct replacements for incandescent lamps in panel mount, multi-cluster, candelabra, Edison and un-based packages.

A BP280CWB1K is priced at $10.00 each (QTY. 500) with availability ranging from off-the-shelf to 45 days ARO (quantity dependent). Samples are available to qualified customers.
