BivarOpto, the Optoelectronics division of Bivar Inc., introduced a new Wedge-based LED designed for extended life applications and replacement of conventional T-1 (5mm) wedge-based incandescent bulbs.

Anthony Vilgiate, VP of Strategic Business Development, said "This wedge-based LED compliments our existing LED product family and our emerging Bivar Light products offering."

The WB5 series features a flat faced lens design with an internal reflector for enhanced light intensity while also providing a 180 wide-viewing angle for optimal display efficiency. Rated between 2.5Vdc and 48Vdc, the subminiature unit measures 20.37-by- 5.842(?)mm. It offers an extended service life rated at up to 100,000h, while requiring a typical operating current from 10mA to 30mA, resulting in power consumption savings of 80 percent or more as compared to incandescent lamps.

"The combined reliability and overall power savings, and ability to avoid frequented replacements, experienced with incandescent lamps in such a wide range of applications, offers significant cost savings in both manufacturing and ownership," Vilgiate added.

Suitable for applications where vibration, electrical and mechanical shock, and heat typically reduce the service life of incandescent lamps, the WB5 series is available in a brilliant white, blue, purple, turquoise, ultramarine, green, yellow, amber, orange and red.

Pricing for the LEDs starts at 64 cents each in 10,000 piece quantities and is immediately available from stock. Custom colors and electrical characteristics are available.
