Nichia NSPB510BS, 5mm-LED, 4700mcd, blue
With 24% Nichia is the largest LED manufacturer in the world and inventor of the blue (and so also white) light emitting diode. The innovative Nichia research department is a pioneer when it comes to efficiency and establishes records on a regular basis.
Durability, brightness and homogeneity are among the major strengths of the Nichia brand. Further, the fine selection allows a large added value for professional processing.
In a long-term laboratory study with more than 50 different white LED types and several thousands of individual measurements, LUMITRONIX detected a much longer durability as well as a significantly lower degradation (loss of brightness) of Nichia LEDs compared to the average of all other light emitting diodes.
