Opnext, renowned for its extensive array of high power, low operating current infrared and red laser diodes, launched a 660nm high-power laser with an incorporated monitor photo diode.
The HL65051DG red laser diode is specifically designed for plastic optical fiber (POF) communications and laser imaging detection and ranging (LIDAR) applications. The achievement of high optimal performance has been demonstrated by system designers through the observation of the laser’s performance and the output power modifications in real time.
The HL65051DG red laser diode is based on the company’s very own design and a unique technology. It was declared in January 2011, and supplements the series of Opnext laser diode products, with its incorporated monitoring capability. This integrated monitoring examines the photo diode current and controls power and temperature, facilitating the system designer to leverage the optical performance. The advantages of performance monitoring include the maintenance of constant laser output power in POF communications applications like the automotive market, laser imaging detection and ranging applications. The HL65051DG performs best in 660 nm wavelength band of 5.6mm diameter with a temperature range of 60°C and 120 MW industry standard package.
With 30 years of successful record, Opnext presents its wide range of 404 nm- 852 nm laser diodes. The company’s renowned red and infrared laser diodes have been demonstrated to utilize low operating current, with prolonged battery life. Its high-quality and reliable features makes it the ideal solution for applications employing the integrity of laser diode power, such as rangefinders, line leveling construction systems, gun sights, and biomedical applications.
The HL65051DG will be manufactured as a whole in early April 2012.
