High power emitters for cost conscious applications
It has been announced that Lumileds has introduced the LUXEON IR 2720 Line of high power emitters that aim to set the standard for abundant radiant power delivered in an industry standard package for easy integration in existing designs. The emitters provide high radiant power of up to 1,300mW at 940nm or 1,250mW at 850nm wavelength and feature high efficacy and a popular 120° beam angle.
The 2.75x2.0mm LEDs are undomed and especially useful for applications with package height limitations that prevent the use of domed solutions. The emitters address a wide array of cost conscious infrared applications from surveillance and machine vision to iris scanning and health monitors.
“Infrared LED uses such as CCTV cameras and machine vision are especially cost sensitive markets, so high performance emitters with high reliability are very much in demand,” said Ryan Dong, Product Manager at Lumileds.
The LUXEON IR 2720 package enables drop-in upgrades in applications that require high punch, long range and high uniformity including positioning and depth measurement, and industrial automation. The state of the art thermal resistance package (4°C/W) effectively solves thermal challenges and ensures system reliability which has been thoroughly tested during the Lumileds extensive qualification process.
The LUXEON IR 2720 Line of 940nm emitters address such applications as biometric identification, military and law enforcement, and traffic and railroad signalling applications. The 850nm emitters are workhorses for machine vision cameras and CCTV cameras.
