The B3 series Hi-Brite Block (patent pending) is designed for use in industrial, automotive, architectural, backlighting and single or multiple lighting applications.

Lens appearance when off is water clear.
Available in a choice of three different spot light lenses from Cree and Fraen, or optional low-profile diffused lenses and floodlight lens styles, the RoHS-compliant B3 LEDs feature a choice of industry-standard color LEDs including high power Cree XLamp LEDs. A choice of mountings include interlocking, mounting tab or quick-mount adhesive backing.
Each Hi-Brite Block unit is provided in a 1 x 1-inch footprint. The modular design is said to enable excellent thermal management characteristics. Custom housing configurations, lenses, or multi-light assemblies are available.
