OMC Announces New Ultra-High-Efficiency IR SMA Fibre-Optic Transmitter LED - FDE870HE

OMC Announces New Ultra-High-Efficiency IR SMA Fibre-Optic Transmitter LED - FDE870HE OMC, the pioneer in optoelectronics design & manufacture, announces its new FDE870HE industrial fibre optic transmitter LED that can deliver up to four times more launch power into multimode fibre for the same current versus existing transmitter devices. This ultra-efficient transmitter contains a high-performance 870 nm chip and features an array of micro-optic elements that gather and focus the emitted photons, coupling considerably more light into multimode optical fibres and enabling data to be transmitted reliably over greater distances, or for the system to use less power to achieve the same result. Greater long-term reliability of the system is a further benefit due to the vastly enhanced day-1 launch power and much lower drive current requirements. Read more »
