940nm AS Product Launch

Post by Darren.R » 16 Nov 2016, 11:17

One of my colleagues works closely with Osram on some large lighting projects, so I made an enquiry regarding any new IR emitter product releases coming up.

I thought some might be interested, as I’ve recently received an update from Osram, which provided the below info...

"SFH 4725AS (940nm half angle 45) - Product Launch expected end of Q4/2016"
"SFH 4726AS (940nm half angle 75) - Product Launch expected end of Q4/2016"

I would assume that "end of Q4/2016" refers to the end of the current financial year.

Regards,
Darren R.

Wahay! Thanks.
A 940nm with a bit more power than the one we have, and no shadow in the middle would be a significant advance! Fingers crossed.

I would assume Q4 2016 means any time in the next 6 weeks.

Hmmm. Considers plan for stealth A700 (sens-up) spotter on a tripod.

Definitely! I must admit that I'm a fan of the (TR38) 940nm Sunranger and don't use anything else with the Drone for wary bunnies... the AS version of the 940nm will be most welcome.

+1

This would be nice... 850nm AS is way to bright for normal ranges anyway :)

Just received an update from the guy at Osram on the new AS 940nm...

"Sorry to say, but volume product launch for both devices has been rescheduled to Q3 CY17.

The delay is due to a new iteration of chip development to ensure current stability."


Not the best news, but at least they are still scheduled for release this year ;) .

Atb,
Darren.

Thank you very much. Looking forward for this release. But I bet that red dot signature will be even greater than on older one. We'll see.
