Opto Diode Introduces the Second in a Series of Narrow-Spectral-Output Ultraviolet LEDs

March 12, 2019

Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, will premiere OD-280-001, the second in a series of UVLEDs that features easy integration, long-lifetime use, and operates in a wavelength that is well-suited for disinfection applications. Peak emission wavelengths range from 275 nm to 285 nm, with typical emissions  at 280 nm.


The new, ultraviolet light-emitting diode with narrow-spectral output provides total power output of 0.9 (minimum) and 1.2 mW (typical). Housed in a convenient TO-46 package, the device is ideal for use in new or existing systems.


The spectral bandwidth at 50% is typically 12 nm. The device features a half-intensity beam angle of 70 degrees, forward voltage of 6.5V (typical) to 7.5V, and capacitance of 350 pF (typical). The new OD-280-001UVLED, similar to the recently introduced OD-265-001, has storage temperature ranges of -40 °C to 100 °C with operating temperature ranges from -30 °C to +80 °C.
