General Purpose Silicon Sensors (Series 0)

Series 0 photodiodes are designed for operation at up to 30V reverse bias voltage for applications where low capacitance and high speed are important. These detectors are tailored for peak responsivity in the 780-950 nm range but are successfully used for pulsed applications throughout the spectral range from 430-1064 nm.


  • Bias: 0-30V
  • Response: 400-1064nm
  • Responsivity (900nm) 0.54 A/W
  • Technology: pn junction

General Purpose Silicon Sensors (Series 5T)

The Centronic Series 5T detectors offer high blue sensitivity coupled with high shunt resistance and low dark leakage current. They are particularly suited to low light level applications from 430-900 nm where the highest signal to noise ratio is important. They may be operated photovoltaically or with a reverse bias of up to 12V where lower capacitance is needed. The 5T range provides the most economic solution for all applications where high speed of response above 800 nm is not critical.


  • Bias:12V
  • Response: 350-1100nm
  • Responsivity (436nm): 0.21A/W
  • Technology: pn
