The ADL-83Y51TL is a low-cost solution for any application that requires powerful NIR laser diodes with a longitudinal single-mode beam profile, such as camera-supported gesture control. The diode emits in the NIR range at 830 nm and has a cw power of 250 mW. In pulse operation, it can be overdriven to up to 500 mW. It is available in a hermetically sealed, compact TO-56 housing that allows for an operational temperature of up to 60°C. The component comes with an integrated monitor photodiode for power control and stabilization. The laser diode is ideal for light source and industry applications.
