Opto Diode Corp. has unveiled its OD-469L high-output blue LEDs. Featuring a narrow beam angle, they are suitable for fluorescence applications in medicine, scientific testing instruments and forensics. The new lighting devices are available in a hermetically sealed TO-5 can with three leads. The electro-optical characteristics at 25 °C deliver total power output ranging from a minimum of 80 to a typical 170 mW. The dominant emission wavelength is from 465 to 475 nm with typical operation at 470 nm. Absolute maximum ratings at 25 °C include 1000-mW power dissipation (infinite heatsink), 350-mA continuous forward current, peak forward current (1/10 duty cycle at 1 kHz) at 2 A and reverse voltage at 5 V.
