As one of the world’s leading suppliers of infrared emitters, photo detectors, optocouplers, and optical sensors, Vishay Intertechnology offers an extraordinarily broad portfolio of optoelectronic products. Whether you require the high speed of a PIN photodiode, the sensitivity of an ambient light sensor, the intensity of a surface emitter, the optical isolation of an optocoupler, or object detection with a reflective or transmissive sensor, Vishay has a solution. Behind these products stands a vertically integrated optoelectronics company with over 30 years of experience in emitter and detector die fabrication and packaging. This guide provides product recommendations for key applications.
Power factor is the ratio of the real power (P = Watts) to the apparent power (VA = Volt Ampere); the goal is to achieve a power factor as close to 1 as possible. A load with a lower power factor draws more reactive current than a load with a higher power factor for the exact same output power. The higher current increases the energy lost within the system, and for utility companies, results in excessive wasted power in transmission.
