Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, has introduced the fourth device in the UVC series of narrow-spectral-output ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVLEDs).
The new OD-280-003 features a narrow radiation pattern and a wavelength that is ideally suited for disinfection tasks in healthcare applications and water purification. Hermetically sealed in a TO-46 package, this narrow-spectral-output device is designed for easy integration into new, or existing systems.
Suitable for rugged use and long-lifetime operation, the peak emission wavelength of the OD-280-003 ranges from 275 nm (minimum) to 280 nm (typical) to 285 nm (maximum) under test conditions at 25 °C. Total power output is 0.68 mW (minimum) and 0.75 mW (typical). The UVLED’s spectral bandwidth at 50% is 12 nm (typical); the half-intensity beam angle measures 9 degrees.
The UVC series of Opto Diode’s UVLED family features operating temperature ranges from -30 °C to +80 °C and storage temperature ranges from -40 °C to 100 °C.
