Lumileds Introduces High Power Emitters for Cost Conscious Infrared Applications

Posted Apr 12, 2019 by Lumileds

Lumileds has launched a new line of high power emitters, the LUXEON IR 2720 that set the standard for abundant radiant power delivered in an industry standard package for seamless integration in existing designs.

The emitters provide high 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 un-domed and especially useful for applications with package height limitations that prevent the use of domed solutions. 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. 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 signaling applications. The 850 nm emitters are workhorses for machine vision cameras and CCTV cameras.
