Opto Diode (Newbury Park, CA), a division of ITW, has introduced the ODD-900-001, a surface-mount photodiode with a daylight filter. The new photodiode offers low capacitance and short switching time in a surface-mount package, making it ideally suited for industrial photoelectric control applications.

It features high sensitivity ranging from 730nm to 1100nm spectral range, with peak sensitivity at 940nm. The electro-optical characteristics at 25° C offer typical responsivity of 0.44 A/W, typical reverse dark current at 5 nA, total capacitance at 25 pF, and typical rise/fall times of 50/50 nSecs.

Opto Diode’s new ODD-900-001with daylight filter operates from -25° C to +85° C; the storage temperature range is between -40° C and +85° C. Power dissipation is 150mW at (or below) 25° C (free air temperature). Reliable and rugged, the new device also features a soldering temperature of 260° C (soldering time is 5 seconds, maximum).
