Good news for electronic signage applications designers as Avago Technologies announced three series of high-brightness oval through-hole LEDs that set a new performance standard for electronic signage applications. The new HLMP-Lx75, HLMP-Hx74/75 and HLMP-Ax74/75 LEDs deliver industry-leading brightness for oval through-hole LEDs, reducing the current required to drive systems. The LEDs’ matched RGB radiation pattern is designed to maintain consistent light and uniform color mixing from all viewing angles. This combination enables sharper viewing quality with lower power consumption for full-color signage such as billboards, stadium video screens, building video walls, as well as for simpler roadway and commercial signage.
The HLMP-Lx75 and HLMP-Hx74/75 LED series offer a typical viewing angle of 40 by 100 degrees, while the HLMP-Ax74/75 LEDs offer 30 by 70 degrees. The wide typical viewing angles and the high luminous intensity of the LEDs deliver optimal performance for outdoor applications. The package epoxy of the LEDs contains UV inhibitor to reduce the effects of long-term exposure to direct sunlight, and the package also offer superior resistance to moisture, providing enhanced durability for outdoor environments. Avago provides design flexibility with the option of shipping tight color and intensity bins, up to 4 nm per bin for the new blue and green LEDs.
The new red AlInGaP LEDs are available at 626-nm dominant wavelength, and the new green InGaN and blue InGaN LEDs are available at 530-nm and 470-nm, respectively. The maximum luminous intensity at 20 mA of the new LEDs is as follows (measured in millicandelas):
- 4 mm standard oval HLMP-Lx75 LEDs: Red – 2400, Green – 6050 and Blue – 1660
- 5 mm standard oval HLMP-Hx74/75 LEDs: Red – 2400, Green – 6050 and Blue – 1380
- 5 mm mini oval HLMP-Ax74/75 LEDs: Red – 4200, Green – 7260 and Blue – 1990
