UVC type, 278 nm Wavelength LED Diodes
NIC Components is pleased to announce the addition of UVC type LEDs to its’ expanded offering of UV LED products. The newly added NUVC66 series operates at 278nm, with a radiant flux of 1.3mW minimum at 20mA forward current and forward voltage of 5.7V.
Ideal for use in water purification, sterilization and disinfection applications, phototherapy, florescent spectroscopy, sensor light for instrumentation applications, bio-analysis detection, counterfeit detection, as well as in curing applications, in conjunction with UVA (longer) wavelength LEDs for superior results, in surface curing, over single wavelength methods.
Supplied in surface mount 6.0mm x 6.0mm package, with 1.4mm height, NUVC66 is ideal for use in low profile applications. With thermal resistance of 37°C/W, the NUVC66 ceramic body package includes thermal pad on underside of the device, for heat dissipation and improved thermal management. LED construction provides long lifetime performance over operating temperature range of -40°C to +60°C, with a thermal junction maximum of +65°C. Supplied tape and reeled on embossed carrier tape for automated pick and placement, followed by reflow soldering, NUVC66 is RoHS compliant and halogen free. NUVC66 unit pricing from $28.15 each, in production volumes.
Evaluation module NIC PN: NUVC66DW278 - Demo Module available from NIC, for evaluation purposes. Please contact NIC to request a demo module and to review your requirements.
