Modular LED series for displays

23 October 2002 Opto-Electronics

BivarOpto's new Super Flux Mako LED Series is designed in a modular format. These ultra-bright LED modules can be fitted tightly together to create a grid-type solid colour display. The module design also permits light distribution to fill the complete square area, providing a uniform pattern of light without gaps, while reducing the number of LEDs typically required with conventional LEDs.

Incorporating an integrated heatsink that allows for high current capabilities, the Mako Series features a continuous forward current of 50 mA and average forward current of 30 mA at 2,4-4,6 Vf. These LEDs are suited for outdoor applications such as traffic signs, stadium scoreboards, moving messages and other large outdoor applications where uniform, high intensity light is required. Rigid 5,08 mm 'grid-spaced' PCB pins with integral standoffs allow insertion into industry-standard through-hole circuitry.

Other outstanding features include a small footprint of only 7,62 mm2, wavelengths from 465 to 630 nm, and a wide 60° viewing angle. The LEDs are available in high intensity blue, aqua, green, amber and red (InGaN or AlGalnP), and appear water-clear when off.
