Lumileds targets Cost Conscious High Power IR Applications
LEDs provide up to 1300mW in an industry standard package
Lumileds has introduced the Luxeon IR 2720 range of high power LEDs in an industry standard package. The emitters provide radiant power of up to 1,300 mW at 940 nm or 1,250 mW at 850 nm wavelength and feature high efficacy and a popular 120° beam angle.
The 2.75 x 2.0 mm LEDs are undomed and designed for applications with package height limitations. 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 940 nm emitters address such applications as biometric identification, military and law enforcement, and traffic and railroad signalling applications. The 850 nm emitters are workhorses for machine vision cameras and CCTV cameras.
