SFH756 - 10MBd Transmitter

Currently Viewing:

The SFH756 is a low-cost transmitter for simple optical data transmission with polymer optical fiber. The 650nm LED allows for speeds up to 10MBd.

The transparent plastic package has an aperture where the the 2.2mm fiber-end can be inserted and fixed with glue. This easy coupling method is extremely cost-effective.


  • Low-cost 650nm transmitter LED
  • Clear package with integrated lens and aperture for bare fiber insertion
  • 2.2 mm aperture holds standard polymer optical fiber 
  • Auto insertable and wave solderable
  • RoHS compliant


  • Industrial control systems in EMI critical surroundings
  • High-voltage isolation, e.g. for IGBT control, lighnting protection etc.
