LEDs Address Demanding Traffic Applications
Marktech Optoelectronics announced the availability of Toshiba’s TLxK series red and amber LEDs. The TLxK series has color, brightness and radiation patterns that are suited for traffic and sign applications. These include, but are not limited to, traffic management systems, traffic signals, pedestrian signals, variable message signs, indoor message signs and outdoor advertising applications. With luminous intensities of up to 12,900 mcd (red) and 23,000 mcd (amber), the TLxK Series LEDs from Toshiba provides an output that is asserted to allow designers to reduce power consumption while maintaining a high level of brightness seldom seen at this power level. The LEDs are available in a 5mm round package with viewing angles of 23º and 30º.
