TORRANCE, CA — September 30, 2003 — 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. LEDtronics offers Infrared LED Lamps in three wavelengths (850nm, 880nm and 940nm), a variety of standard electrical bases, many LED configurations and several angles of emission. Industry-standard bases enable these IR LED lamps to be integrated into traditional wiring systems without requiring modifications, furthering the use of IR technology in both indoor and outdoor applications. Infrared LEDs are ideal light sources for equipment that is often used in low-light rescues, surveillance tasks, law enforcement operations and military exercises. Due to their resistance to ambient-light and electromagnetic interference (EMI), Infrared LEDs enhance the performance of night vision devices, wireless communications, navigation systems, automated machinery, etc... LEDtronics IR LED lamps and bulbs are available in all standard domestic and international voltages.

Solid-state construction renders IR LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shocks, vibrations, frequent switchings and environmental extremes. Lamps perform well in applications subjected to voltage dips or surges. Integrated current-limited resistors and polarity-protection diodes assure that no circuit modifications are required. Additionally, with the use of multiple LEDs, an LED cluster lamp continues to provide light even if one or more emitters fail unlike when the filament breaks in an incandescent bulb.

With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate year-after-year making them ideal illuminators for applications that require a reliable light source. IR LED lamps use only 10% - 20% of the energy consumed by equivalent conventionally-constructed IR lamps, and when combined with their maintenance-free operation results in substantial cost savings.

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 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 for special requirements. For qualified customers, samples are available to meet your design requirements.
