Luminus Releases New High Power IR LEDs with Wide Range Viewing Angle

Luminus Devices announced the expansion of its high-power infrared (IR) LEDs portfolio. The new products are designed with eleven emitters to address the rapid expansion of automotive, consumer, machine vision, medical, and security applications.

The Luminus IR SST LEDs are now offered in three wavelengths, 810nm, 850nm, and 940nm, with six beam angle options ranging from 40 to 130 degree. The high radiometric power output and low thermal resistance allow system designers to reduce the number of emitters and overall footprint for a broad range of infrared applications. A small beam angle of 40 degree can replace 2mm to 5mm through-hole IR LEDs, while the broadest beam angle, 130 degree, is ideal for flood illumination that is more common in security applications.

Nine of the newly-introduced IR products are based on dual-junction technology which nearly doubles the power density and keeps efficiency virtually unchanged.

“Our dual-junction technology allows us to double the power density in the same footprint,” said Yves Bertic, Senior Director of Global Product Marketing, Luminus, “Now product designers can address applications that need longer reach and more intense and focused beams.”

Optical options have also been expanded to support the increasing variety of infrared applications. Whether for biometric applications or monitoring for security, this latest generation of IR LEDs supports ongoing industry development and reduces time to market. All Luminus IR SST emitters are rated as "Risk-Free" for eye safety according to the IEC Photo-biological Test (IEC/EN 62471 standard).
