02 March 2010
AP Technologies announced the international release of the new OD-469L high output, narrow beam blue LED from Opto Diode Corporation, a global supplier of advanced performance photodiodes and high reliability, visible and IR LEDs.
The second product to be introduced in Opto Diode’s high output light-emitting diode series has a typical peak wavelength of 470nm with a spectral bandwidth of 22nm.
The OD-469L uses the latest high efficiency LED chip technology and has a typical output at 170mW at 350mA.
The OD-469L uses a hermetically sealed TO-5 package with a high performance lens giving a beam angle of only 7° FWHM, resulting in a very high Radiant Intensity of 700mW/sr at 350mA. Under pulsed conditions the OD-469L can be pulsed at 2-3A peak, depending upon the pulse length and duty cycle.
Typical applications for the OD-469L are fluorescence and bio-luminescence stimulation in medical, systems, scientific testing instruments, and forensic equipment.
