IR LEDs in PLCC-2 packages

Optek Technology has developed a comprehensive range of surface mount infrared LEDs, known as the OP180 Series and OP280 Series.

The infrared LEDs are housed in plastic leadless PLCC-2 packages and feature a silicon encapsulant that increases the operational life of the component. 

The surface mount infrared LED family consists of the following components: OP180 - high power GaAs with 940nm peak wavelength, 0.50mW/cm2 apertured power, 20mA IF, and 100° half power angle; OP280K - high power GaAIAs with 875nm peak wavelength, 0.85mW/cm2 apertured power, 20mA IF and 90° half power angle; OP280KT - high power GaAIAs with reverse polarity terminals, 850nm peak wavelength, 0.85mW/cm2 apertured power, 20mA IF and 90° half power angle; OP280PS - point source GaAIAs with 850nm peak wavelength and smaller spot size, 0.15mW/cm2 apertured power, 20mA IF and 50° half power angle; and OP280V - high performance 850nm invisible VCSEL (class 1M) with 2.50mW/cm2 apertured power, 7mA IF and 18° half power angle. 

The OP180 and OP280 Series IR LEDs are ideal for non-contact position sensing, datum detection, machine automation, and optical encoding applications.
