3W Super Cool White LED (Bridgelux 15000-25000k)
3W Cool White High Luminance LED for mounting to printed circuit boards (PCB's). This premium LED uses a 45 Mil Bridgelux BXCE chip giving a very cool white light (15000-25000k) with a focus of power towards the bluer/violet wavelengths. All our LEDs come with a 120 degree lens fitted as standard.
Very popular for use in reef aquaria, vegetative horticultural lighting and automotive lighting, this powerful LED boasts an impressive 240 lumens when driven at maximum power. However due to the superior build quality and high specification of the Bridgelux chips these 3W LEDs retain an excellent level of efficiency even at higher drive currents.
As with all high power LEDs this component must be mounted onto an aluminium or copper heat sink with a thermal glue/compound between the rear of the PCB used and the heat sink surface. This is crucial to attain optimal performance, efficiency and lifespan in any LED application. Active fan cooling is highly recommended particularly at higher drive currents.
For convenience the general electrical and optical characteristics are listed below. For full manufacturers specification please consult the datasheet provided here.
If you require further information, please feel free to contact us as any time and our UK staff will be happy to help.
* Please note these LEDs are intended for mounting onto a PCB (printed circuit board) for correct operation. If you need to site these LED individually or need flexibility in your array, we recommend viewing our LEDs that come pre-mounted onto aluminium star PCBs here.
