Date Announced: 26 Oct 2006 American Bright Optoelectronics Corporation introduces new Ultra-Flux LEDs that meet SAE/ECE & JIS automotive color requirementsThe new BLF series boasts automotive industry compliance, high flux output, RoHS compliance and an innovative package that allows for wider viewing angles.Chino, Ca. October 26, 2006 – American Bright Optoelectronics introduced the BLF series of ultra-flux LEDs designed to meet the existing requirements of the automotive, signaling and sign industries. The industry standard footprint is available in a wide range of SAE/ECE & JIS approved colors to accommodate signaling and marker light applications. The package is completely RoHS and WEEE compliant making it suitable for products with global integration and use.The BLF series produces a typical luminous intensity of 5000mcd at 50mA in white with a viewing angle of 90 degrees. The 625nm super red version produces a typical luminous intensity of 1000mcd at 70mA with a viewing angle of 120 degrees making it ideal for brake and driving light applications. The 589nm yellow version produces a typical luminous intensity of 12,000mcd with a narrower viewing angle of 30 degrees making it ideal for signaling applications. All three versions feature SAE/ECE & JIS approved colors and an operating temperature range of –40ºC to +85ºC.“Having LEDs that already meet the strict color specifications of SAE/ECE & JIS makes the designers job much easier.,” said George Lee, President of American Bright Optoelectronics Corporation. “Coupled those approvals with industry leading outputs and you have a significant head start on automotive and signaling projects,” he added. The BLF series is available from stock and is priced from $0.21 in 10,000 piece production quantities for the red version. Samples are available to qualified OEM customers. The series is shipped in auto-insertion compatible plastic tubes.
