TT electronics Optek Technology introduces 880nm IR LED with 100 ° inclusive beam angle

TT electronics Optek Technology, of Carrollton, TX, USA has expanded its IR SMD product line with the introduction of an 880nm wavelength infrared light emitting diode (LED) that delivers a 100 ° inclusive beam angle.

The OPR2800 Series of high power GaAlAs LEDs are housed in a surface mount chip carrier package that matches a PLCC-2 footprint.

“The SMCC package features a flat lens window, which allows a wide beam angle for the LED,” said Alan Bennett, VP of Optek’s sales and marketing. “This package design makes the infrared LED suitable for both single device as well as array applications.”

The new LED is also suitable for applications in non-contact position sensing, data detection systems, machine automation, and optical encoding. It features an 880nm wavelength with a 100 ° total beam angle. Forward voltage is 1.5V maximum (If =50mA), with continuous forward current of 50mA; reverse voltage is 30V, with reverse current of 100 μ A (Vr =2.0V). Power dissipation is 130mW at 25 ° C. Operating temperature range for the IR LED is -40 ° C to +100 ° C.
