OMC launches new optoelectronic components

Optoelectronics specialist OMC is showcasing a number of new additions to its wide range of fibre optic, backlighting and LED components at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2020.

The company is launching its hermetically-sealed FDE851HLBF infra-red transmitter diode at the show.  Designed for use in applications where long-term reliability is paramount, this 850nm emitter features a hermetically sealed, TO-can body with glass optical window to help protect the device internals from atmospheric conditions.

Also on show for the first time is another addition to the company’s transmitter range, the FDE2850 emitter – a high power, high speed, fibre-optic transmitter optimised for 200µm glass fibre systems. The firms says it is able to produce on lead times much shorter than typical industry norms for this type of device.

The company will also be showcasing its H19 Fibre Optic Shield, a microprocessor shield compatible with Arduino Uno, designed to allow simple evaluation and incorporation of optical fibre in microprocessor-based designs.

William Heath, Commercial Director, comments: “Southern Manufacturing & Electronics is an excellent showcase for us in the UK and provides the opportunity to put our latest products in front of potential new customers early in the year.  We manufacture in the UK and have a very experienced team of engineers who enjoy a challenge, so come and speak to us about problems you are trying to solve – the “black art” of industrial fibre optic datacomms has been our speciality for over 35 years.”
