I mentioned the Nichia 365nm LE above and this particular LE fits in the Haiku Head with a really intense hot spot and the typical narrow spill beam is also intense. For checking currency and credit cards for their hidden marks, the spot on low (3S driver) is adequate. You have more power for other applications. The XR-U head gives you a really cool UV ball of quite uniform intensity and I would think it would lend itself to some applications better than the McR-17XR reflector. This is a real small niche but I am real impressed with the results. So much so that I thought I had a done deal arrangement with a fellow CPF'er for spliting a run of MCPCB's and I bought 25 of the Nichia LED's in anticipation of having the LE's assembled by now. The MCPCB deal fell through since it was not a priority for the other party and now I still have to go about getting a viable gerber file created and find a source for the MCPCB's.
Which specific type is the Nichia? NCSU034A? In that case the with differs only from 6,5mm to 6,8mm, which could be enough, I guess?
Just want to help make this happen
Are MCPCB difficult to make? I've made pcb's in a former life, so in theory I could do it, just never made MCPCB
