50 Khz center frequency optical transmitter

Posted on Jul 21, 2012

The pulse repetition rate is relatively insensitive to temperature, and power supply voltage and is a linear function of V1N, the modulating voltage. Useful information transfer was obtained in free air ranges of 12 feet (~ 4m). Greater range can also be obtained by using a higher power output IRED such as the F5D1 in combination with the L14P2 phototransistor. Average power consumption of the transmitter circuit is less than`3 watts.
