  • This brightness based on the brightness of the human eye induction curve simulation luminous intensity meet CIE (Commission International Organization light)
  • The measurement of the light-emitting angle half its brightness when testing data
  • Brightness error plus or minus 15% guarantee


You can run the IR LED like normal LED, adding current-limit resistor is necessary.
