The international technology group SCHOTT is launching a new Mini LED for lighting applications in dental and medical technology that outperforms all previous solutions. As the world's smallest hermetic, yet fully autoclavable, high-power or high-brightness (HB) LED currently on the market, it is both tiny & tough. Thanks to its gas-tight housing made of inorganic, non-aging materials, the Mini LED is particularly robust and successfully withstands chemicals, corrosion, and pressure, even with changing temperatures. The Mini LED is thus an extremely reliable light source that efficiently emits high-quality light over a long period of time. SCHOTT will be presenting this new development for the first time ever from November 12 to 15 at COMPAMED in Dusseldorf, Germany (hall 8b, booth H08).

The SCHOTT Mini LED is particularly well suited as a lighting solution for dental and medical equipment and instruments that must be reliably autoclavable. Typical applications include dental turbines, cameras, ultraviolet curing, endoscopes, laparoscopes, otoscopes, and surgical instruments. The Mini LED allows the physician to position its light source closer to the treatment area and illuminate it better. Therefore, hard-to-reach regions of the patient’s body can be illuminated more clearly during surgery or a clinical examination. Thanks to the miniaturized size of the Mini LED, which is only 2.0 mm (0.08 inches) in diameter, it is now possible, for the first time ever, to equip medical devices with light that design limitations had long made unfeasible.

“We have tested the Mini LED very thoroughly. It has proven to be extremely robust, and withstands, among other things, at least 3,500 autoclave cycles at 134 degrees Celsius (273.2 degrees Fahrenheit) and 2 bar ambient pressure,” explains Dr. Frank Gindele, Development Manager for LED products at SCHOTT Electronic Packaging.

The Mini LED is available in both customer-specific housing shapes with contact pins and in SMD design. Therefore, it can be installed in any medical device. Furthermore, SCHOTT offers the product in accordance with customer requirements in different color temperatures, light colors, radiation profiles, and optical properties, such as light flow.

Some 130 years of history in the area of special purpose glass and more than 70 years of experience in manufacturing hermetic seals and feedthroughs guide the development and production of new products at SCHOTT Electronic Packaging.
