2-Inch Air Cooled LEDs

2-inch Air-Cooled LEDs


The 2-inch, air-cooled LEDs are utilized in smaller wind tunnels or test facilities where a model is relatively close (less than 2 feet).  These LEDs are utilized in the Packaged PSP Systems.  Although not as powerful as their water-cooled counterpart, they still offer a high-intensity output without the need for an external water source.  The LED is composed of an LED head with drive electronics and power supply built into the housing.  This LED is also the basis of the schlieren LED and RGB LED for particle shadow velocimetry.  There are two options available:

1.) The continuous 2-inch, air-cooled LED light source provides uniform, stable illumination, for radiometric pressure and temperature sensitive paint measurements.  The unit operates continuously or in long-pulse mode, designed for radiometric systems using the continuous/long-pulse driver (module for radiometric).  The operation mode is set using an external toggle switch.  In long-pulsed mode, the pulse width and frequency are set by sending an external TTL signal to the BNC trigger input.  The duty cycle may be set from 0% to 100%.

2.) The lifetime 2-inch, air-cooled LED light source provides uniform, stable illumination for lifetime pressure and temperature sensitive paint measurements.  The system is overdriven and designed for lifetime acquisition systems using the short-pulse/high-power driver (module for lifetime).  Overdriving the unit gives a higher peak power per pulse than the continuous LED system.  Because it is overdriven, the duty-cycle is limited to 5%.  Operation is controlled by applying a TTL signal to the external BNC.  The maximum pulse width is limited to 1-ms.  The LED has a built-in safety circuit to protect the LED head if the duty-cycle limits are exceeded.

The light distribution from either system is approximately Gaussian for distance greater than 18-inches [45-cm] from the source.  The units are available in 400-nm and 460-nm packages, however, other wavelengths are available upon request.  No external cooling source is required.  The unit is cooled by two fans built into the package which drive air to the heat sink.

Ordering Information:

  • Continuous LED System: LM2X-DM-XXX (LED head with DC/long pulse driver)
  • Lifetime LED System: LM2X-DMHP-XXX (LED head with short-pulse/high-power driver)

**Note: "-XXX" denotes wavelength for LED heads.

The 2-inch, air-cooled LEDs are compatible with the parabolic reflector and diffuser for focusing the output.
