LEDs Combine SMT And Through-Hole Capabilities

Embarking as the first commercial LEDs to combine surface-mount technology with the features and capabilities of through-hole, leaded T-5-mm epoxy lens LEDs, the OctoLEDs offer a direct replacement for standard 5-mm through-hole LEDs. The components deliver brightness levels of up to 7,000 mcd depending on color with a forward current of 20 mA. Available on standard 24-mm tape for automatic insertion, they have an off-the-board height of 11 mm and measure 6 mm x 6 mm. Colors include red, yellow, green, blue, white, bi-color, and RGB. The LEDs are available with a variety of lens finishes, opening the door to different viewing angle options dependent upon lens type. Additionally, the components can withstand soldering temperatures of 255ºC up to 10s. LUMEX INC., Palatine, IL. (800) 278-5666.
