Title: TSAL6200 vs TSAL7200
Post by: fpill on March 16, 2008, 09:49:02 AM
Can anyone explain the difference between the TSAL6200 and the TSAL7200?
Has anyone done a comparison between the 6100 and 6200 (10 degrees vs 17 degrees)?

Thanks

From the datasheets:
Quote
TSAL6200 is a high efficiency infrared emitting diode in GaAlAs on GaAs technology, molded in clear, blue-grey tinted plastic packages.

That appears to be the only difference.

I'll "assume" that IR can pass through clear plastic and clear blue-grey tinted plastic just about the same.

Otherwise I'm going to need to order both and test them.

The rest of the datasheets are completely identical, so it's almost certainly only a cosmetic difference.
