Posted By : ES Admin

Photonic Products Ltd, authorised distributor of SANYO laser diodes, has announced that, due to the recent merger between SANYO and Panasonic, SANYO will end production of its industrial red and infrared laser diodes at the end of September 30th 2010. The last time buy date for all affected product lines will be March 31st 2010.

In order to fully support its SANYO laser diode customers, Photonic Products has negotiated an agreement with SANYO whereby it is able to guarantee order coverage for up to two years, providing final orders are placed by March 31st 2010.

Photonic Products will also source and recommend suitable alternatives from leading manufacturers which will provide equivalent performance and reliability at a comparable price. During the transition period, the company’s engineers will work with customers to evaluate and approve alternative laser diodes to prevent disruption to production schedules and minimise any inconvenience.

SANYO will continue to manufacture 405nm blue-violet laser diodes which are available in industrial strength up to 85mW optical output power and with the stability required for critically demanding industrial and medical applications. Photonic Products will continue to distribute SANYO blue-violet laser diodes.
