Lumileds LUXEON IR Domed Line Infrared LEDs

Boost in radiant power of domed IR LEDs to improve performance of motion-tracking and surveillance cameras.

Lumileds has introduced additions to its LUXEON IR Domed Line of infrared LED emitters, offering a marked increase in DC drive-current capability up to 1.5A, and pulse current up to 5.0A.

The LUXEON IR Domed Line features higher drive currents that produce increased maximum radiant power output of 1,350mW at the slightly visible 850nm wavelength, or 1,450mW at 940nm for invisible or covert IR emission.

The higher power capability of these new Lumileds IR LEDs enables clearer 3D imaging with fewer LEDs in multi-emitter applications, such as the 3D scanning or time-of-flight systems used for face recognition.

The new LUXEON IR Domed Line features higher optical power output and is particularly useful in the latest generation of small, high-resolution surveillance cameras, which have smaller lens apertures, and smaller pixels in their image sensor. These systems need more light to function properly.

The new LUXEON IR Domed Line parts may be used as drop-in replacements for lower-power IR LEDs in existing designs, as they have a standard 3.7mm x 3.7mm footprint.

The new LUXEON IR Domed Line emitters also now include a narrow-beam 50° LED, complementing the existing 60°, 90°and 150° emitters. The range of optical outputs provided by the LUXEON IR Domed Line gives IR camera designers the ability to optimize for high punch, long range or wide scanning.
