The new OD-850WHT is a wide temperature range infrared (IR) emitter from Opto Diode designed to simplify thermal design for night vision, aircraft, and vehicle light markers for covert operations in military applications. These emitters also have thermal improvements ideal for high temperature industrial photoelectric controls used in petroleum refining, chemical processing, and power generation and other industrial applications.
The GaAlAs light-emitting diode OD-850WHT features typical optical output ranges from 24 to 28 mW, a wide emission angle, and a temperature operating range from -65 to +150°C. With a peak emission of 850 nm, an optical half intensity beam angle of 80°, and no internal coatings, this GaAlAs light-emitting diode operates without heat sinking and without derating to 80°C. All surfaces on the OD-850WHT are gold-plated in a hermetically-sealed, standard two-lead TO-46 package.
