Visible LEDs in fibre optic housings
OMC in the UK has developed LEDs for coupling visible wavelengths across the entire spectrum into either 1mm core size polymer optical fibre or 200 micron or larger glass optical fibre.
The LEDs are suitable for lab equipment, test and measurement instrumentation, and datacommunications in industrial and medical applications.
Originally the visible wavelength LEDs in fibre optic housings were developed as a custom product for a research application which required wavelength-specific light sources to cover the whole visible light spectrum and illuminate laboratory samples.
Now available as a standard product, any of OMC’s visible wavelength LEDs can be coupled into any of OMC’s standard housings, such as its H19 or its Keyed SMA (KSMA) system that provides rotational consistency of a keyed connector combined with the security and reliability of a SMA connector, as well as standard FSMA or ST housings.
The robust, ultra-long-life LED emitters are offered in a huge range of wavelengths, including 470nm blue, 525nm green, 567nm green, 590nm yellow, 635nm red, 660nm red in addition to custom wavelengths to suit customer requirements.
