they will both work equally well. Just input the correct voltage and set the right current and your good to go.

Default Re: Diodes again! help!

it depends on what you want to build.. if you want red laser go for LPC Diodes

if you want a BLUE RAY... then go for PHR or 6x Diodes...

as long as you know how to set its current (mA) with the right diode..

for example.. for Blue Ray, PHR 803T, set it at 110mA using a dummy load....

that current is safe for your diode..

check these links...

PHR-803T red/IR diode pinout and currents

Default Re: Diodes again! help!

First you could have asked this question on your other DIODE thread...
No need to open multiple similar Threads...

Secondly it has not even been an hour since you stated ant search...
Members here spend hours hunting down info on the Forum...

As to your question... any Laser...LED or other DC load that is in the range
of the driver's output current limits will work...
