Narrow-Spectral-Output UV LED Line Expands

(Opto Diode Corp.)

Opto Diode Corp. introduces the fourth device, the OD-280-003, in its UVC series of narrow-spectral-output ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVLEDs).  The OD-280-003 features a narrow radiation pattern and a wavelength that is suitable for disinfection tasks in healthcare applications and water purification. Hermetically sealed in a TO-46 package, the component is said to easily integrate into emerging or existing systems.

Robust enough for rugged use and long-lifetime operation, peak emission wavelength ranges from 275 nm (minimum) to 280 nm (typical) to 285 nm (maximum) under test conditions at 25°C. Total power output is 0.68 mW (minimum) and 0.75 mW (typical). The UVLED’s spectral bandwidth at 50% is 12 nm (typical), the half-intensity beam angle measures 9°, operating temperature ranges from -30°C to +80°C, and storage temperature ranges from -40°C to +100°C.
