Infrared LED – A Testing Procedure

The crude testing of Infrared LED did not work as per my previous posting. I continued to investigate. I realized, I was trying to test the functionality of the Infrared led by my naked eye. We can not see the infrared and so, I’m not the qualified person to test the infrared LED using the naked eye. The videos I watched had the infrared LED emission. So the cameras can capture the Infrared but not the naked eye.

Took my cell phone video camera and looked the LED through it. BINGO.. it works. Tested the TV remotes. ie. Looked the TV remotes through the video/photo camera and I could see the infrared light.

I wanted my blog more focused on the IT strategy and enterprise architecture. I promise, after my white board project, I will try to limit the computer, electronics engineering discussion as much as possible.
