Bright Sunlight Visible RGB LEDs

June 22, 2007
LEDtronics introduces the RGB-1007-001 — a low profile, four legs through hole LED that offers full-spectrum Red, Green and Blue LED (RGB LED). These discrete LEDs provide excellent performance and terrific visibility in a compact size of only 4.90mm x 6.5mm +0.15. The red, green and blue diodes emit high-intensity light in a viewing angle of 120°. The red diode's wavelength is 635nm. The wavelength of the green diode is 520nm. Blue operates at 470nm. Depending on the color, luminous intensities range from 230mcd to 750mcd with current between 20mA and 25mA current. A water clear lens protects the diode array. Use RGB-1007-001 LEDs with LEDtronics OptiLED Light Pipes to simplify the spatial relationship between the PCB and remote indicator illumination points. Light pipes channel all of the LED-generated light to the exact location where the light is required. Series RGB-1007 LEDs broaden the illumination options available for back lighting computer panels, car dashboard, handheld instruments like PDAs, data- and tele-communication status indicators, etc. Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably year after year and are virtually maintenance free.
