Opto Diode’s New High Speed Ø5 mm Photodiode - SXUV20HS1

Optimized to provide stable responsivity for consistent, repeatable measurements, it is ideal for any high-speed laser power monitoring applications.

Sept. 25, 2014 - Newbury Park, CA - Opto Diode (www.optodiode.com), a division of ITW, announces the SXUV20HS1, a high-speed photodiode with a Ø 5 mm circular active area,. The new detector is ideal for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) detection covering 1 to 200 nm. It is designed to dissipate the optical energy of high-powered UV lasers without the typical measurement degradation that occurs with prolonged exposure to UV. Optimized to provide stable responsivity for consistent, repeatable measurements, it is ideal for any high-speed laser power monitoring applications.


Highly stable, the SXUV20HS1 sensitive area is 19.7 mm2, grid lines are at 5 microns with the pitch at 100 microns. Shunt resistance is 5 MOhms and capacitance is typically 200 pF to a maximum of 800 pF. The high-speed device parameters include reverse breakdown voltage at 160 V (minimum), dark current of 100 nA (under test conditions of 150 V), and a rise time of 2 nanoseconds (maximum).

RoHS and REACH compliant, Opto Diode's new photodiode is well-suited for applications such as photolithography, where tight control of the laser's output, a fast response, and measurement stability are critical.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
