New beam angle LEDs focus light precisely for demanding high-intensity applications

14-11-2019 | OMC | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

OMC has introduced two new surface-mount LEDs, an ultra-narrow 15-degree beam LED, and a 60-degree beam LED. Both new LEDs are produced in a range of package styles, beam angles and all common LED wavelengths, plus infra-red versions.

The new narrow 15-degree angle and the 60-degree angle SMT LEDs open up design opportunities for engineers requiring a clear HMI and ensure precision and accuracy. They are principally targeted at high-intensity applications where the beam needs to be seen from a distance, such as indication, signalling, sensing and communication.

The company employs a proprietary post-die-mount encapsulation process and is capable of cost-effectively integrating narrow-angle lensing into a range of surface-mount emitters.

OMC’s commercial director, William Heath comments: “The 30-degree angle SMT LED we launched last autumn has proved extremely popular, and these two new 15-degree and 60-degree additions to the range further expand the choice available for engineers. As well as a wide range of standard devices, we offer a customisation service and can produce SMT LEDs with any wavelength or other light characteristics a customer may require.”
