LED Components and Systems: IR Light Emitting Diodes

Infrared Emitting Diodes (IREDs) are solid state light sources emitting in the near infrared part of the spectrum. The emission wavelength is closely matched to the response peak of silicon photodiodes and phototransistors. This product line provides a broad range of lens and power output options. Both top and side radiating cases are available as well as a wide range of emission beam profiles. These IREDs may be operated in either CW or pulsed operating modes.

IREDs with wavelengths 770 nm, 870 nm 880 nm, 940 nm, and 950 nm are offered for applications like smoke detection, encoders, transmissive and reflective optoswitches.
