MicroLED Surface-Mount Indicator Line

Dialight announced the expansion of its MicroLED surface-mount indicator line with three new products for high-performance and reliability in electronics, networking, automation and handheld-device applications. The new products leverage Dialight’s 80-plus year history of indicator innovation, offering durable, long-lasting solutions for low-power, small footprint applications.

With an expanded lineup that now includes a new 0402 and two new PLCC-2 models, Dialight’s wide inventory of surface-mount technology provides single-source supplier ease of procurement for its customers. These are the latest in a prolific series of new product rollouts expected over the next few months as Dialight ramps up R&D in its signals and components business.

The 0402 (1005) SM 5988A Series is a low-current, 5 milliamp signal that’s just .039” (1.0mm) x .020” (0.5mm) x .020” (0.4mm) but delivers a vibrant punch with battery power conservation for small electronics. The small package allows for close-quarters placement and is compatible with pick-and-place installation automation in a 4,000-piece reel.  Also available in 20-piece sample strips, the new 0402 comes in seven wavelengths, including 635nm and 625 nm Red, 605nm Orange, 590nm Yellow, 570nm Yellow-Green, 525nm Green and 470nm Blue.

The PLLC-2 3528 SM 5988B Series and Mini PLCC-2 SM 5988C Series both feature an integrated reflector cup that focuses the beam, reduces light bleed and provides brighter on-axis viewability. Both are ideal for light pipe, backlighting and indicator applications, and come in 6 different wavelengths: 623nm Red, 605nm Orange, 590nm Yellow, 570nm Yellow Green, 525nm Green and 470nm Blue.

At just 0.138” (3.5mm) x 0.110” (2.8mm) x .075” (1.9mm), the 20 milliamp 3528 offers high intensity light with pick-and-place compatibility in 2,000-piece/reel and 20-piece strip. The Mini is nearly half the size at just 0.087” (2.2mm) x 0.055” (1.4mm) x 0.051” (1.3mm) and is available with low-current 2 milliamp or 20 milliamp LEDs. It too is pick-and-place compatible in 3,000 pieces/reel and 20-piece strip.

“These products demonstrate Dialight’s commitment to customer success. We know you need multiple products and don’t have time or resources to hassle with multiple suppliers,” said Matthew Boudiette, Dialight vice president and general manager. “That’s why our goal is to be the single-source supplier for all of our customers’ indicator needs, providing them the quality and durability they can depend on with the convenience they need.”
