Opto Diode's High-Temperature Infrared LED With Wide Angle Of Emission


CAMARILLO, Calif. – August 20, 2020 - Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, announces the OD-110WISOLHT, a high-temperature, wide-angle infrared light-emitting diode (IRLED) specially designed for high-temperature applications, such as covert exterior aircraft lighting.

The device features a peak emission wavelength of 880 nm and total power output ranging from 60 mW (minimum) up to 120 mW (typical). With a spectral bandwidth of 55 nm (typical), the new IRLED has a half intensity beam angle of 110 degrees and is conveniently packaged in a 2-lead TO-39 can with an isolated case. Forward voltage is 1.75 volts (typical) to 2 volts (maximum); reverse breakdown voltage ranges from a minimum of 5 volts to 30 volts (typical). The rise and fall times for the high-temperature wide angle IRLED is 20 nanoseconds, respectively.

Opto Diode’s OD-110WISOLHT features a continuous forward current of 500 mA, power dissipation at 1000 mW and peak forward current of 1.5 A while the reverse voltage is 5 volts. The lead soldering temperature (at 1/16” from the case for 10 seconds) is 260 degrees C. Storage and operating temperatures range from -65 °C    to 150 °C with a maximum junction temperature of 150 °C.
