FM Optical Transmitter

               

The circuit can be used as data transmitter and receiver system. Frequency Modulation is used  and the center frequency is 50Hz.

Transmitter

The pulse repetition rate is relatively insensitive to temperature and power supply voltage and is a linear function of Vin the modulating voltage. Useful information transfer was obtained in free air ranges of 12 feet (4m). Lenses or reflectors at the light emitter and detector increases range and minimizes stray light noise effects. Greater range can also be obtained by using a higher power output IRLED such as the F5D1 in combination with the L14P2 phototransistor. Average power consumption of the transmitter circuit is less than 3 watts.

Receiver

For maximum range, the receiver must be designed in the same manner as a radio receiver front end, since the received signals will be similar in both frequency component and in amplitude of the photodiode current. The major constraint on the receiver performance is signal to noise ratio, followed by e.m. shielding, stability, bias points, parts layout, etc. These become significant details in the final design. This receiver circuit consists of a L14G2 detector, two stages of gain, and a FM demodulator which is the tachometer circuit, modified to operate up to 100 kHz. Better sensitivity can be obtained using more stages of stabilized gain with AGC, lower cost and sensitivity may be ob­tained by using an H23A1 emitter-detector pair and/or by eliminating amplifier stages. For some applications, additional filtering of the output voltage may be desired.
