Sharp 505nm max current?

Hey LPF,

I ordered the Sharp 505nm from DTR and was just wondering if any of you have pushed this diode beyond 100mA? I believe the data sheet said that was the max.

The reason I ask is because many, including myself, push the Sharp 488nm above the data sheet’s max current.

Figured it was worth asking. Thanks!

Mine is set at 275 mA and is actually 502 nm. It measures 110 mW IIRC.
Very nice. I have a driver that’s preset to 230mA. But I also just got a Groove 2 and Flex in the mail. Might have to mess around with it.

I use one of my constant voltage/current power supplies to manage the output of these diodes when I was binning them by wavelength and also to see what output power they might reach.
