The new Oslon Black SFH 4715A infrared LED (IRED) from Osram Opto Semiconductors (Sunnyvale, CA) offers a typical electro-optical efficiency of 48% — a figure never before achieved with opto-electronic elements. It also achieves a substantial reduction in cooling requirements, providing much longer service life. Other features include:
- A boost in output to 800 mW (previously 630 mW).
- The ability to illuminate objects over 100 m away depending on the application and type of external optics.
- Beam angle of 90°.
- Protection for up to 2 kV and extended corrosion-resistance.
