The TitanBrite High-Voltage, Low-Current LED, which is the newest addition to the TitanBrite family of high-power LEDs is capable of running at a higher voltage with a lower current than alternative technologies (such as a traditional 10 W LED) while providing up to 45% brighter light output and superior light distribution.

TitanBrite High-Voltage, Low-Current LEDs are suitable for a number of applications across a wide range of industries including:

Industrial: Inspection lighting; anywhere you use high voltage application, such as automated visual inspection, backlight sorting machines, and warning lights

Medical: Spotlighting, backlighting (for x-rays), operating lighting

Commercial: Backlighting for electronic signage (large illuminated ads at train stations, airport terminals and fast food restaurants), machine lighting, production lighting

General: Lighting fixtures (parking garages), light arrays, spotlights
            
Because a high-voltage LED (33 volts and up) runs at a lower current, it does not conduct as much heat, which simplifyies heat dissipation design considerations and ensures less energy loss in heat generation and control. The need for bulky heat sync elements is eliminated as the high-voltage LED has a built-in metal core PCB and does not require additional heat sync components.

The current level of a LED is a primary concern for power-intensive applications. A low-current unit is also less hazardous than a high current one The low-current LED design claims to offer greater light distribution than traditional standard LEDs which provide light in concentrated area or ‘hot spot’.

A cluster of LEDs offer a viewing angle of 120° eliminates hot spot issues.

The TitanBrite High-Voltage, Low-Current LED also offers up to 45% brighter light output than a traditional 10 W LED. With almost double the amount of light in a single unit, the cluster array of LEDs are placed in a pattern, that allows the design to achieve this output.
                    
Lumex’s new TitanBrite High-Voltage, Low-Current LEDs measure 38 mm in diameter and feature a 120° viewing angle. The LEDs are available in standard cool and warm white as well as custom colors. The technology is priced at $10-15 per unit in production volumes with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks.
