The LED indicators offer tighter intensity binning, improved visibility and ESD protection

By Gina Roos, editor-in-chief

Dialight has released its new 597 SMD
series of LED indicators,
comprised of four new products. The new indicators offer tighter intensity
binning, reduced light bleed, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for
high-performance electronics, networking and control panel applications, said
the company

new 597 SMD products include:

  • The
    0603 Tighter Intensity Binning Series
     claims greater product
    intensity uniformity and better consistency. The series offers two
    intensity bins max on green, blue and white LEDs and one intensity bin max
    on red, red-orange, orange, yellow and yellow-green.
  • The
    0603 Domed Lens Series
    a 60-degree viewing angle is suited for light pipe applications. The narrow
    viewing angle reduces light bleed in applications using multiple Optopipe light
    pipes and offers increased on-axis intensity versus non-domed products of
    the same size, said Dialight. The series is available in seven colors.
  • The
    0805 Reflector Cup Series
     provides a 110-degree viewing angle
    and nine color choices. The built-in reflector cup projects light wider
    for better visibility while reducing bleed in light pipe applications and
    on front panel displays, according to the company.
  • The
    0603, 0606, 0805, 1206 Series with integrated Zener Diode 
    is designed
    for ESD protection. Applications include handheld and portable equipment,
    ID tags and other movable applications that are at risk of ESD exposure. The
    ZD series’ built-in transient voltage suppressor provides Human Body Model
    Class 2 ESD protection for up to 4,000 volts. This series guards against
    both instant, catastrophic failure caused by ESD, as well as minor ESD
    damage that causes performance degradation over time, said Dialight.
