The integrated collimating lens creates a tight beam profile for use with accuracy-dependent devices such as radial or linear encoders for absolute or incremental measurement, as well as long-range light curtains, edge detectors, scanners, and general optical sensing and switching.
Having a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 105°C, the OP207CL can withstand demanding environments in a wide range of applications including industrial automation, safety systems, robotics, security detectors, or other equipment requiring dependable position, proximity, or motion sensing.
The surface-mount LED with integral moulded lens comes mounted on a 9.9×9.9mm PCB substrate. The compact footprint and height of only 6.3mm allow use in space-constrained situations.
The GaAIAs LED emits wavelengths in the 840-870nm near-infrared range for good spectral matching with silicon photo-sensors, and the typical rise/fall time of 22ns ensures fast response to turn-on/off signals.
