Excelitas VTE Series of Infrared Emitting Diodes
PART/ VTE3374LAH

VTE3374LAH - IRED, T-1 (3mm) Plastic Package, 5mW, Beam angle of ±10°

The VTE3374LAH is a 880 nm GaAlAs Infrared Emitting Diode (IRED)mounted in a long T-1 (3 mm diameter) lensed plastic package. With a narrow beam angle of ±10°, this 880 nm GaAlAs IRED is suitable for smoke detection, IR illumination and optical switching applications.

This IRED 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
