POF LEDs and Photodetectors


Industrial Fiber Optics produces low-cost, easy-to-use, connector-less LEDs and photodetectors for use with plastic optical fiber (POF) cable. The product family contains 17 different devices. LEDs range from low-cost infrared (IR) devices for short distances to very fast 655 nm red LEDs for 100 Mb 75-meter applications. Our photodetectors include photodiode, phototransistor, photodarlington and multiple photologic devices with various data rate capabilities. We also manufacture custom IR and visible light devices for plastic optical fiber, large-core silica and multimode silica fibers using SMA and ST device mounts.
