NEWBURY PARK, Calif., July 18, 2012 — Opto Diode has introduced the ODD-900-001, a surface-mount photodiode with a daylight filter. It offers low capacitance and short switching time, making it suited for industrial photoelectric control applications. It features sensitivity ranging from the 730- to 1100-nm spectral range, with peak sensitivity at 940 nm. 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 ns. The device is designed for a variety of industrial detection tasks. It operates from −25 to 85 °C. Storage temperature range is between −40 and 85 °C, and power dissipation is 150 mW at (or below) 25 °C (free air temperature). Reliable and rugged, it also features a soldering temperature of 260 °C, with soldering time of 5 s, maximum.
