Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, introduces a two-stage cooled, infrared (IR) detector, the BXT2S-38T. The new, high-performance 9 mm² active area device is available in a TO8 package with a thermo-electric cooler (TEC) and flat sapphire window. With a peak sensitivity wavelength between 4.3 µm and 4.5 µm, the lead selenide (PbSe) device features typical detectivity (D*) of 3.5 x 1010, and resistance ranging from 1.0 -15.0 MOhms. The responsivity is 3.3 x 104 V/W (minimum) to 5.0 x 104 V/W (typical) with a typical response time of 12 µsec.
The B Series infrared detectors from Opto Diode are ideal for gas analysis and emissions monitoring, process control, and spectroscopy applications. The family of durable, long-life products combines fast response time and high reliability to ensure consistent performance.
Opto Diode’s new BXT2S-38T element features cooled detector operation as low as -45 °C; absolute ratings for storage and operating temperatures range from -40 °C to +85 °C. Available for shipping now.
