Technical Information

Recommended for use with high-power IR LEDs

To significantly improve and maximize contrast when working in the infrared, the use of a filter is almost mandatory. And when high-power LED lighting is being used, MidOpt recommends the use of our BP850 filter.

High transmission and broad bandwidth

In well over 90% of all infrared inspection applications, 850nm or 880nm LEDs are employed. We often suggest our single substrate, hard-coated BP850 as it offers very high peak transmission (typically >99%) and the coatings used are very dense, hard and environmentally stable.

While this filter's bandwidth is quite broad, ANY camera's sensitivity drops quickly beyond 880nm so there is normally little appreciable benefit in blocking these longer wavelengths... the camera sensor essentially takes care of this all by itself.
