The OSLON Compact infrared light-emitting diode (IRED) from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors now closes the gap between high-power and low-power IREDs. Despite its very small package it offers impressive output. It can therefore be used, for example, for such tasks as surveillance, digital image processing, 3D measurement, pattern recognition and gesture detection.
The new infrared OSLON Compact SFH 4710 has been designed especially for industrial applications. As a mid-power LED with a typical output of 270 milliwatts (mW) from an operating current of 500 milliamps (mA), it is a welcome addition to the product portfolio of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, occupying the output range between Power TopLED and OSLON Black.
