Excelitas VTP Series Photodiodes
PART/ VTE1291-1H

VTE1291-1H - IRED, T-1 ¾ (5mm) Plastic Package, 20mW, Beam angle of ±12°

The VTE1291-1H is a GaAlAs Infrared Emitting Diode in a lensed, plastic package with a narrow beam angle. This 880nm GaAlAs infrared emitting diode (IRED) is mounted in a T 1 ¾ (5mm diameter) lensed plastic package. This IRED has a narrow emission beam profile suitable for smoke detection, IR illumination and optical switching applications.

This Infrared Emitting Diode can be operated in DC mode or in pulsed mode. Pulsed mode is used when a higher optical output power is required for certain applications.

Features and benefits:

  • Narrow optical emission bandwidth
  • Approved for smoke detection applications under UL file S3506
  • RoHs compliant

Applications:

  • Smoke detection
  • IR illumination
  • Optical Switching
  • Consumer coin readers
  • Lottery card readers
  • Position sensors
  • Encoders
  • Printers and copiers
