Plastic Infrared Emitting Diode
• Wide irradiance pa ern
• Side-looking package for space-limited applica ons
• Wavelength matched to silicon’s peak response
• Mechanically and spectrally matched to other OPTEK products
Each device in this series is a high intensity gallium aluminum arsenide infrared emi ng diode that is suited for use as a
PCBoard mounted slo ed switch or an easy mount PCBoard interrupter.
Each dome lens OP240 and OP245 device is an 890 nm diode that is molded in an IR-transmissive clear epoxy side-looking
package. OP240 is mechanically and spectrally matched to the OP550 and OP560 series of phototransistors. OP245 is
mechanically and spectrally matched to the OP555 and OP565 series devices.
Please refer to ApplicaƟon BulleƟns 208 and 210 for addiƟonal design informaƟon and reliability (degradaƟon) data.

OP245 CONTAINS POLYSULFONE
To avoid stress cracking, we suggest using
ND Industries’ Vibra-Tite for thread-locking.
Vibra-Tite evaporates fast without causing structural failure in
OPTEK'S molded plas cs.
