- Wavelength: 850 nm
- Pointsource diameter: 50 - 150 µm
- Switching time: 10/20 ns
In contrast with conventional IR LEDs, point sources offer effective suppression of undesirable side radiation along with simple collimation. Due to these special characteristics, IR point sources are an ideal radiation source in optical rotary encoders. They also guarantee efficient coupling with optical fibers for data transmission.
