Sunnyvale, Calif. – Osram Opto Semiconductors has released the Oslon Black SFH 4713A, an infrared LED (IRED) with a wavelength of 850 nanometers (nm). The SFH 4713A is designed for near-range illumination from 10 to 50 meters (approx. 30 to 200 feet), targeting security applications including camera surveillance of public spaces, company premises, and entrances to banks and shopping centers.
Aimed at infrared short- to mid-range lighting systems, Osram applied its high-performance technology behind its Oslon Black, with an optical output of over 1 watt (W), to the mid-range power class of approximately 760 mW. Currently this IRED is available with a beam angle of 90°.
The high-efficiency IRED offers an optical output of 760 milliwatts at a current of 1 ampere (A). Due in part to the smaller chip size, the new IRED is a lower-cost alternative to Osram’s SFH 4715A for systems with mid-range output requirements, said Osram. The company plans to release in autumn 2015 the SFH 4714A with a beam angle of 150° and an optical output of 720 milliwatts.
“These new components close the gap between the extremely small Oslon Compact, with 270 mW at 0.5 A, and the high-output Oslon Black versions with optical outputs of more than 1,135 mW at 1.5 A,” said Osram. The means Osram will offer a full portfolio of high-efficiency 850-nm IREDs that supports the entire spectrum of infrared lighting applications and output requirements.
