Photodiode (FIT0180)

This is a placeholder topic for “Photodiode” comments.

This photodiode is made out of environment-friendly materials(no Cadmium and Lead) compared with the traditional CDS photoresistor. It can be used to generate a current when light hits the body of the diode. Depending on your project, this can be easier to work with than a photoresistor.

I cannot seem to find the data sheet for this product. can this photodiode detect wavelengths from 400nm to 920nm?

Hey Amajith,

Welcome to the forum!!

I came across this datasheet with the specs for that one.
Its only 40% responsive at 400nm so it can although not as strong as the higher wavelengths.


Hi Amajith,

Great catch! I’ve updated this on our product page for the next person who needs it :slight_smile:
