PALATINE, Ill., March 11, 2009 – Lumex has launched its QuantumBrite line of LED backlights, available in edge- lit and chip-on-board formats and in white and color options. The white versions provide high-intensity brightness of up to 10,000 nits, enabling full daylight visibility. The backlights are available in off-the-shelf sizes, and the company will custom-tailor with regard to size, power and heat management requirements, mounting needs, brightness targets and color selection for high- or low-volume specialty applications.
The backlights are suitable for flat panel displays and indicator lighting, logo enhancement, indirect lighting, refrigerator walls, and test and measurement for jewelry grading or microscopes. Homeowners can have LED panels installed in walls, reducing the need for floor lamps and introducing a contemporary element into their living space.
Minimum order is 5000 pieces, making the devices suitable for small-volume applications such as medical instruments, security equipment and industrial controls.
The edge-lit LED backlights are available in formats with or without reflectors. The reflector format captures more light and can enhance light output by up to 20 percent.
The LED backlights are available in any color including tunable RGB, and in custom colors like pink, purple and turquoise. They can withstand shock and vibration in demanding applications and have an average lifespan of 100,000 h. The company says that they are more environmentally friendly than cold cathode fluorescent lamps, which contain hazardous materials such as mercury.
The RoHS-compliant LED backlights range in size from 1 × 1 in. to 10 ×10 in.
