How to distinguish between emitter LEDs and receiver LEDs
Yesterday, a customer inquired about straw hat emitting diodes for use in night vision lights.
Based on the customer's needs, we further learned that what the customer needs is a receiving tube, because the receiving tube and the transmitting tube are collectively called infrared transmitting and receiving tubes in the industry. Their shapes are similar, so it's hard to tell which one is the receiving tube and which one is the transmitting tube.
Distinguish from appearance
The transparent colloid on the left is the transmitting tube, and the black colloid on the right is the receiving tube.
Infrared transmitting tube: Under normal circumstances, we can distinguish infrared transmitting tubes and infrared receiving tubes from their appearance. Infrared transmitting tubes are generally transparent, and the internal structure can be clearly seen.
The internal structure of infrared emission tubes is basically the same as that of light-emitting diodes, but the difference lies in their internal materials. And if it has not been used, we can also know its positive and negative poles, usually the positive pole, and the short leg is the negative pole.
Infrared receiving tube: Infrared receiving tube is an electronic component that converts infrared light signals into electrical signals. Most of the infrared receiving tubes are encapsulated in black opaque resin.
Infrared receiving tubes include infrared receiving diodes and infrared receiving transistors. The two-pin one is the infrared receiving diode, the long pin is the positive pole, and the short pin is the negative pole. The one with three pins is an infrared transistor. Infrared transistors can be divided into two types: NPN and PNP.
Use three-purpose meter to measure and identify
If both are transparent colloids, use them.
Then use instruments to measure and judge. Hailongxing Optoelectronics recommends using a three-purpose meter to measure and identify.
Three-purpose meter measurement and identification can use the Rxlk electrical barrier of the 500-type or other pointer-type three-purpose meter to measure the inter-electrode resistance of the infrared pair tube to identify the infrared pair tube.
Criterion 1: Change the test leads to measure when the end of the infrared tube is not exposed to light. The forward resistance of the emission tube is small and the reverse resistance is large. When the black test lead is connected to the positive electrode (long pin), the resistance is small. (1k-20k) is the launch tube. The receiving tube has large forward and reverse resistances.
Criterion 2: When the black test lead is connected to the negative electrode (short pin), the transmitter tube has the larger resistance. When the resistance is small and the pointer of the three-purpose meter changes with the intensity of the light, the receiver tube is the pointer that swings.
(1) When the black test lead is connected to the positive electrode and the red test lead is connected to the negative electrode, measure the forward resistance.
(2) High resistance means that the pointer of the three-purpose meter basically does not move.
receiver LEDs,emitter LEDs
There are many welding methods for LED lamp beads on the chip, and the following is one of the commonly used methods for reference. First, use an electric soldering iron to heat some soldering tin on the positive and negative electrode pads of the lamp bead (the soldering tin must not be too much, otherwise, the positive and negative electrode pads will be connected once heated with a hot-air gun), then use a hot-air gun to heat the positive and negative electrode pads at the same time, after the tin melts, use tweezers to place the positive and negative electrodes of the lamp bead on the corresponding pad.
LED is the light emitting diode, which is a semiconductor solid light emitting device that converts electric energy into light energy. Its core is the PN junction. In addition to the forward conduction, reverse cut-off and breakdown characteristics of the general PN junction, it also has the light emitting characteristics under certain conditions. Its structure mainly includes the following parts: lead, bracket, encapsulation glue, bonding wire, LED chip, solid crystal glue and phosphor. The discoloration failure of LED lamp bead is closely related to its material, structure, packaging process and service conditions. The following will analyze the causes of its discoloration through specific cases.
LED lamp beads are also called light emitting diodes. It has a wide range of applications. Its luminous colors include red light, emerald green light, yellow green light, yellow light, purple light, blue light, white light and orange light. The above is monochromatic light. It can also be made into two or three colors.
The gold wire used to package LED lamp beads contains more than 99.99% gold. It is produced by drawing gold from this material. In addition to 99.99% gold, this gold also contains less than 1% other trace elements. One of the core components of LED lamp bead packaging is gold wire, which is the bridge connecting the luminous chip and the welding point, and plays a decisive role in the service life of LED lamp bead. So how to identify the purity of gold thread?
