High-lumen white light sources increase lifespan to 10,000 hours
KYOCERA SLD LASER Range of high-lumen white light sources has increased the lifetime of its 500 lumen chips to 10,000 hours, making them more attractive for use in industrial applications. Devices doubled the luminous flux of its SMD white light sources to 1,000 lumens, delivering crucial advantages for applications in which the light is transmitted via a fiber. In medical endoscopes, the extremely high luminous flux and small beam diameter mean that even thinner fibers can be used. In industrial endoscopes, light can be transmitted across longer distances than before. Devices are available on a 7×7 mm SMD housing.
