ams OSRAM is introducing a variant with a wavelength of 920 nm for its well-known infrared (IR) LED product series OSLON® Black and SYNIOS P2720. Read more about this in the following product update:
The well-known IR LED product series OSLON® Black and SYNIOS P2720, which are used particularly in industry, are now also available with a wavelength of 920 nm. The technologies are particularly useful in the areas of biometrics (e.g. 2D face recognition) and consumer (e.g. smart doorbell). Brighter IR illumination at the optimal wavelength of 920 nm allows the IR camera to see a better image of a person. In order for this to be successful, the necessary compromise between sensor sensitivity and reddish glow is optimized accordingly.
The new variant of the product series is therefore particularly suitable for customers who work on camera-based lighting systems and are looking for the ideal compromise between an 850 nm and a 940 nm high power IR LED.
About OSLON® Black
The OSLON® Black high-performance infrared heaters are available in the wavelengths 850 nm, 920 nm and 940 nm. The components combine a very high overall optical flow and small housings with a footprint of just 3.75 × 3.75 mm² for particularly dense assembly.
Additional advantages include very high total radiant flux at 1 A DC, low thermal resistance for high ambient temperature operation, and high current DC operation.
About SYNIOS® P2720
The SYNIOS® P2720 products impress with their extremely low overall height of 0.6 mm and are therefore ideal for narrow applications that still require high efficiency. The products do not have an integrated lens, but secondary optics for narrow beam angles are available.
Thanks to its compact design with high power output, the infrared LED is ideal for security applications, 2D facial recognition and gesture recognition in consumer and industrial applications.
