Product details


For an easy evaluation and optimal implementation of our infrared emitters in different applications we offer an extensive range of Breakout Boards (BOB) and Driver Circuit Boards (DCB). The Breakout Board transfers the SMD footprint to 2.54 mm headers which allows an easy electrical contacting. All Driver Circuit Boards support a quick evaluation. They are small and use a low-cost driving circuit with a maximum stability close to a power regulated mode. Only a supply voltage and a pulse signal have to be applied.

HISpower series

High-power infrared sources in TO-8 housing

HISpower series emitters have an integrated gold-plated reflector that directs the radiation emitted from the rear filament side to the front through the housing window in order to achieve maximum efficiency and optical output power. All our emitters offer minimum drift at a constant electrical resistance. Infrasolid’s infrared emitters are characterized by a very low temperature coefficient of electrical resistance. Therefore, the hot resistance and the cold resistance are almost identical which eases the electrical control of the IR sources. Infrasolid’s advanced packaging technology SOLIDSEAL® allows soldered sapphire, CaF₂ and BaF₂ windows for use in a wide temperature range of -25 °C up to +85 °C.
