Würth Elektronik eiSos, one of the leading European manufacturers of electronic and electromechanical components, is expanding its optoelectronics portfolio: Following infrared LEDs, the company now also has a wide range of detectors in its program that are perfectly matched to the LEDs. Developers of various infrared applications can be sure that the spectra of emitters and detectors match. All infrared components are available from stock any time, and free samples can be requested.

Infrared light (IR), invisible to the human eye, offers a huge number of possible applications – especially through the use of extremely compact components. In addition to classic light barrier installations, remote controls and smoke detectors, infrared can be used in many applications for data transmission. Infrared even goes under the skin:

An individual’s pulse can be monitored and blood pressure measured using fitness track watches. Another usage would be security systems, such as eye, face and gesture recognition, which can also work with IR products.

Since the spectra and wavelengths of Würth Elektronik IR LEDs and photodetectors match perfectly, the modules are ideally suited for data transmission. Identical design of IR LEDs and photodetectors facilitate PCB design. The photodetectors are available in numerous designs with or without daylight filter. All products are equipped with a gold wire for excellent contacting.

The detectors from Würth Elektronik can be selected at https://katalog.we-online.de/en/led/browse/infrared/infrared_phototransistors according to product families or parameters and ordered without a minimum order quantity.
