Si photodiode


High UV tolerance, photodiodes for UV monitor


The S12698 series are Si photodiodes that have achieved high reliability for monitoring ultraviolet light by employing a structure that does not use resin. They exhibit low sensitivity deterioration under UV light irradiation and are suitable for applications such as monitoring intense UV light sources. The S12698-07 is a 3-pin type with case connection pins electrically independent from anodes.

- With UV glass window (hermetically sealed)
- High sensitivity in UV region
- High reliability for monitoring UV light irradiation
- Resin material not used
