pliable wire

Is anyone aware of breadboard hookup wire that is pliable, almost string like? Less stiff than usual wire. I have some sensors I am prototyping that are several feet away from base-board.

Re: safety inquiry

LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are different from laser diodes and are not subject to the Federal laser product performance standard. That's pretty clear. Are you aware of any separate agency or performance standard applying to LEDs? Does their omission from laser guidelines underwrite the general li...

Re: safety inquiry

Hi darrelg The vast majority of devices containing LEDs are "safe under all conditions of normal use", and so are classified as "Class 1 LED product"/"LED Klasse 1". At present, only a few LEDs—extremely bright LEDs that also have a tightly focused viewing angle of 8° or less—could, in theory, cause...

Re: safety inquiry

Thx. I've got the circuit built before the post, and the detector works great. The output is continuous and not pulsed, 100ma. I'm just trying to find some information on the safety of the specs I am using. The laser categorization system now includes LEDs; class 1 = safe use under all foreseeable c...

Re: safety inquiry

Hi DarrellG thanks for the reply. Are you saying that this LED typifies the ones used in TV remotes? I'll do so more digging on my end.

safety inquiry

Hi SPE, I have a question regarding the safety profile of the IR LEDs in my current project. I have (3) infrared (~940nm) led "lamps" separated by several inches each which I am tracking effectively with a camera. But is it an eye-safe configuration? Tracking distance is ~1 to 12 feet and the illumi...
