SENSORS AND DETECTORS
20 July 2009
Opto Diode, a global supplier of advanced performance photodiodes and visible and infrared LEDs, has introduced the third in the series of selective wavelength photodiodes, the ODD-660W. The device operates from 550nm to 720nm with peak response at 660nm and features a spectral bandwidth of 80nm. The hermetically-sealed photodiode offers extremely low dark current without the need for optical filters. Applications for the photodetector include fluorescence detection, colour sensors, daylight sensors, light barriers, and medical diagnostics.
The standard TO-46 permits easy installation into existing or new systems. Storage and operating parameters are from -30°C to 85°C; lead soldering temperature of up to 260°C.
