New high-power fibre optic transmitter for challenging environments

10-02-2020 | OMC | Subs & Systems

OMC offers a broad product range of fibre optic, backlighting and LED components that are widely used across multiple markets worldwide.


The company’s latest product is the hermetically-sealed FDE851HLBF infra-red transmitter diode. Created for usage in applications where long-term reliability is crucial, this 850nm emitter offers a hermetically sealed, TO-can body with glass optical window to better protect the device internals from atmospheric conditions. The device provides fast rise/fall times enabling high-speed operation in the tens of MHz and comprises integral micro-optics to couple light efficiently into multimode glass optical fibres as small as 50µm, producing a typical launch power of 30µW at 100mA into 50/125 fibre.


The hermetically sealed housing of the device eliminates air from the operational environment so that it cannot reach the internal components.
