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

March 12, 2019

Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, introduces the third device in a series of narrow-spectral-output ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVLEDs), the OD-265-003.  The UVLED with lens features a narrow radiation pattern and total power output of 0.5 mW (minimum) to 0.58 mW (typical). The newest device in Opto Diode’s family of ultraviolet LEDs is housed in a hermetically-sealed TO-46 package, making it convenient to integrate into existing or new systems.


Electro-optical characteristics (at 25° C) include emission wavelengths ranging from 260 nm (minimum) to 270 nm (maximum), with a typical peak emission at 265 nm.  The spectral bandwidth is 13 nm (typical), the half-intensity beam angle is only 9 degrees, forward voltage is 5 volts (typical) to 6.5 volts (maximum), and capacitance is 350 pF (typical). The new, narrow-spectral-output UVLED offers long-lifetime operation and is well-suited for disinfection applications.


All devices in Opto Diode’s UVLED family feature operating temperature ranges from   -30 °C to +80 °C and storage temperature ranges from -40 °C to 100 °C.  To learn more about Opto Diode’s OD-265-003 ultraviolet LED and to view a schematic, packaging information, a power output vs. temperature graph, a spectral output chart, radiation patterns, and power output degradation graphs, please go to: https://optodiode.com/pdf/OD-265-003DS.pdf.
