Surface mount through-hole T-5mm LEDs by Lumex

Lumex's (Palatine, IL) OctoLED surface-mount devices combine the convenience of surface-mount technology (SMT) with the features and capabilities of through-hole, leaded T-5mm epoxy lens LEDs. Useful for medical devices among other applications, the patent-pending OctoLEDs are suitable for any situation where there is a need to transition from through-hole to SMT technology, without sacrificing the light emission features of epoxy lenses. They promise brightness up to 7,000mcd (dependent on color), which Lumex says is a market first from any conventional SMT LED driven by the common If of 20mA.

Lumex OctoLEDs (Series Number SML-H1505xxx-TR) can be used anywhere the convenience of surface mounting is required, with the high brightness, color and viewing angle choices of standard T-5mm LEDs. Such applications include dot matrix arrays where each LED needs to be individually-addressable.

OctoLEDs have an off-the-board height of 11mm (0.43 inches) and occupy a circuit board footprint which is 6mm x 6mm (0.24 inches x 0.24 inches). They are available on standard 24mm tape for automatic insertion. They are available in the full range of colors including red, yellow, green, blue, or white. Bi-color as well as RGB versions are also offered. The LEDs are available with a variety of lens finishes, opening the door to different viewing angle options (angle will vary dependent upon lens type).

The units can withstand soldering temperatures of up to 10 seconds at 255º C. A gradual temperature rise of 2º per second reaching 150º C is recommended. Lumex OctoLEDs are RoHS compliant.

Samples of these devices in standard colors are available from stock, with production quantities in 8 - 12 weeks. Pricing is dependent on color specified and quantity ordered, and is approximately $0.30 per unit in production quantities.
