Title: IR LED Comparison
Post by: UndCon on August 31, 2008, 05:27:30 PM
I took a picture of my 2 IR-pens side by side

(http://Undcon.com/mods/wiimote/compare_ir.jpg)

Here we see 1 noname IR from a tv remote probably about 20 years old

And the brighter (brand new) one is rated like this:
IF: 100 mA
clear: 5 mm
beam: ±25°
VF: 1,2 V
Wavelength: 940 nm


Ill receive a box of Vishays 6400's this week - it will be nice to compare them as well...
