Chino, Calif. Introducing one of the industry's highest powered, single LED devices, a new 3-watt power LED from American Bright Optoelectronics features high flux density and high lumen output. Available in three styles, the new lead-free devices are offered in a complete, all-in-one light engine or in individual units.
The NovaBrite BWL 3 series offers a rating of 6500 K (IF = 350 mA) with an input power of 3.0 watts (PD). With high performance InGaN characteristics, the new series features high flux density, high lumen output (60 lm typical), and low power consumption with a viewing angle of 120 degrees. The operating temperature range is -40°C to 120°C.
Offering designers more lighting choices and installation flexibility, the series is offered as a complete light engine, a PC-board mounted unit (light module), or a discrete LED component (emitter). The self-contained light engine is comprised of a miniature 13.50-mm square LED unit that is mounted to a tabbed, low-profile 36-mm diameter PC-board, installed on a 48-mm x 20-mm aluminum extruded heat sink, pre-wired for one-step installation.
This 3-watt LED system is available in red, green, blue, amber and white. A RGB version is under development and will be available in May. Two dome lens styles are also available, which create narrower high intensity 30 or 60 degree viewing angles. The series is manufactured in compliance with the EU's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) lead-free materials and processes.
These new devices may be used in a variety of applications include LCD backlighting, and interior lighting for automotive applications as well as a host of general lighting applications that require high intensity, long life, and where thermal management is a key design criteria.
The BWL 3-watt (white) series is priced from $6.00 each in production quantities. Prices are lower in standard RGB colors. Delivery is from stock or from the factory in special configurations.
