Wedge-Based LEDs Hit The Slots

Featuring a service life of 100,000 hours, the company's Wedge-Based LEDs produce similar color output as industry standard white T-1/34 (5 mm) wedge-based incandescent bulbs. Designed for use on circuit boards, computers and peripherals, the LEDs are also finding use in the gaming industry as replacements for incandescents in such areas as "bet" and "credit" illuminated buttons on slot machines. The InGaN devices are TTL and CMOS compatible, and handle both dc and pulse operations. An internal resistor is provided in two grades at either 130O (Model BL-C38E-A) or 430O (Model BL-C38E-B), including current-limiting resistors for 6V and 12V, respectively. Power dissipation is rated at 120 mW, with peak forward currents (IFP) rated at 150 mA. Viewing angle is 85° and emitted color is white. Appearance is water clear when off. Operating temperatures range from -40°C to 80°C and intensities range from 240 to 1,230 mcd. All configurations are manufactured in compliance with Pb Free (RoHS) materials and processes. The plug-compatible wedge-based unit is compactly packaged with overall dimensions of 0.739" high x 0.228" diameter, provided with a flush surfaced lens for smooth panel installation. Wedge-Based LEDs are priced from $0.50 each for production quantities. AMERICAN BRIGHT OPTOELECTRONICS CORP., Chino, CA. (909) 628-5050.
