Opto Diode has introduced the second in a family of three new infrared LEDs, the OD-850F. The high-power gallium arsenide (GaAIAs) features a narrow-angle emission and a wide range of linear power output.

The new IR emitter upgrades replace OptoDiode’s OD-880F device, offering nearly twice as much output power, less degradation, and better stability. Highly durable, the new IR LED device features a hermetically-sealed, standard TO-46 package with gold-plated surfaces and window caps that are welded to the case. The narrow angle is ideal for long-distance LED tasks in a variety of industrial control applications.

OptoDiode’s new OD-850F narrow angle, high power emitter can be stored and operated safely at temperatures ranging from -40°C to 100°C.
