OPTEK's UV LED Series provide uniform optical light patterns

TT electronics OPTEK Technology has developed a family of ultraviolet LEDs in the UV-A spectrum. The OUE8A Series offer an energy-efficient hermetic TO-46 metal can packaged UV LED source providing a uniform optical light pattern, high current pulse capability, ESD protection and a long operating lifespan.



Alan Bennett, vice president of sales for OPTEK Technology notes that the OUE8A Series UV LEDs eliminate any environmental concerns associated with the disposal of traditional mercury UV lamps. Not only do these devices allow customers to target specific applications with the narrow wavelength emission, but they are able to do so while eliminating any mercury hazard.

The company says its UV LEDs are ideal for medical and industrial applications including phototherapy treatment, dental applications, fluorescence and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy; photo-catalyst curing of inks, coatings and adhesives; as well as paper currency and document validation. Additional applications for the OUE8A Series UV LEDs include aircraft coatings and biohazard detection equipment/systems, skin dermatology, forensics, and automotive oil, A/C, and fluid detection.

All of OPTEK's UV LED devices have an 18º typical half power emission angle and a pulsed forward current of 1.6A. Operating temperature ranges from -40ºC to +85ºC. The OUE8A Series UV LEDs are RoHS compliant and ESD protected for reliable operation.

Typical pricing for the OUE8A Series UV LEDs is approximately $11.40 each in quantities of 100 pieces. Lead time, if stock is not available, is from 6 to 8 weeks.
