                I used this to replace a bad IR LED on the emitter board of an ice maker circuit typically found in Kenmore, Whirlpool, Kitchenaid, etc. side-by-side units with ice and water in the door.
                Worked great.

                      Comments about RadioShack High-Output Infrared LED:

                      Read this if you are interested in security illumination. I became interested in these after a purchase on a low budget security cam system which had 12 LED infrared lighting for night. The factory camera LED's definitely lit up the darkness but were very obvious to the eye emitting a red glow (later I learned they were lower in the light radiation spectrum, around 750nm).
                      I had purchased a few of these 940nm LED's to experiment with in a quest to dim the "red glow" - it worked for me. They will emit a faint red glow in total darkness but much, much less noticable than what I had.

                        Need illumination for video camera. Specs on some packages (bags, blister packs) are quite ambiguous; specifically, it would be nice to know for the forward current: nominal, maximum continuous, and max tolerated pulse.

                            The IR led has a forward voltage drop of 1.2V, not 1.28V as mentioned in the specs section. The led can go to a rated 100ma though, as also mentioned. I would not recommend running the led at high currents unless you pulse it, as to prolong the life of the led.

                                Inexpensive way to repair the sensor on a garage door opener. Simply solder in place of the broken one.
