OMC launches new range of High Power Surface-Mount Infra-red and Ultra-violet LEDs
High reliability designs with range of lens options; suits data communications, sensing and curing
October 2016…OMC, the pioneer in optoelectronics, has launched a new range of surface-mount high-power ultra-violet and infra-red LED emitters. The high power SMD LED series is available in two package styles and suits a wide range of possible applications, including curing, data communications, inspection and sensing.
The very compact 3.5mm x 3.5mm High Power SMD LED device is available in both UV and IR types, with a number of integral lens options providing different output beam angles and a ceramic substrate giving enhanced thermal properties. Available UV wavelengths include 365nm, 385nm and 395nm and IR wavelengths include 850nm and 940nm.
The second package style in the series is the larger Multichip UV LED, measuring 6.8mm x 6.8mm. This 7W device offers very high power output and features a glass lens for superior reliability and extended product life. As the device includes multiple LED chips, these can be configured to allow the device to emit more than one UV wavelength should the application require it.
“Our new high power SMD IR and UV LED series has been developed to provide customers with more versatile solutions for their industrial, detection and data communications applications.” said William Heath, OMC’s Commercial Director. “The range of package sizes, lensing options and device powers is designed to offer maximum flexibility to engineers looking to integrate infrared or ultraviolet LEDs into their designs.”
