  • Short answer, it is eye safe.

    Here's the link to the thread in the sparkfun forums, and here's the link to the pdf Vishay Eye Safety

  • Is the product 'eye safe'? I didn't see anything in the spec sheet. I'm looking for a Radiant Intensity vs Forward Current chart. I found this limit

    In the case of full IR-A spectral band (700-1400 nm), the standard suggests that irradiance at or below 0.96 mW/cm^2 is safe for continuous exposure of a duration slightly greater than 8 hours.

  • Thank you!

  • I can't help but think of the smoke, and the 8bit 'chug', of my childhood electric train. I remember my efforts to get more smoke out of the engine. A friend built this battery powered fog machine for a project he's been working on and I've seen smoke generators used in wearables. I'm ready for the next article on this.

  • Is there any chance you can site your source on this? I'd love to add it to a class I teach on unintended consequences. Here's one to add to your dinner time conversation. Why is the smoking ban causing an increase in the mortality of baby sparrows? Think about it before you click the link.

  • FYI - The REM headers on the MyoWare Cable Shield shield don’t line up with the MyoWare sensor board. I contacted customer service and their response was “the board still worked”, which is true, but forget using stackable headers if you purchase this “stackable” breakout board. Perhaps they will fix this in the next revision.

No public wish lists :(
