Product details

950nm Infrared Emitter

An infrared emitting diode that emits radiation in the near infrared range (950nm peak). The emitted radiation, which can be modulated, is generated by forward flowing current. The device is enclosed in a 5mm plastic package and has a lightly diffused grey plastic lens. This high intensity device has excellent long term stability and is designed to match with photodiode BP103B. A typical application is remote control of colour TV receivers.
