Historically, the industrial division is the first of the Group to have been set up and currently constitutes its core business.


It manages two main product lines:
 

COMPONENTS


Typically, silicon photoreceivers in various shapes, sizes and types of packaging.


 

SENSORS


Typically, more or less complex electronic circuits that consist of the transducer, conditioning electronics and housing mechanics.

 

 

The company follows the supply chain vertically for both product families: from research and development to production; all stages are carried out in Trento by highly qualified personnel who are attentive to customer requirements.


The close partnership with the FBK research centre also allows us to control the upstream production chain, i.e. the so-called front-end that concerns the design, production and quality control of the semiconductor.


Constant commitment to quality and excellence distinguishes Optoi production and translates into raw material control procedures, in-line tests and final tests on 100% of the products (first at semiconductor/slice level and then on the final device) before packaging and shipping to the customer.


The company uses the best and most modern design techniques, it carries out material analysis and generates studies on the reliability and robustness of the components, and also creates intelligent algorithms and promotes a high degree of responsibility for the technical personnel.


All Optoi activities are regulated by a quality system that is certified according to ISO 9001:2015 Standards.

 

INDUSTRIAL DIVISION PRODUCTS

 


photodiodes, phototransistors, very sensitive detectors, LEDs, VCSELs and lasers, right up to more complex systems that form the reading head of an encoder. These are all basic sensitive elements of an optical encoder. These devices can be cut and/or assembled individually or in monolithic arrays or multiplexed in arrays with a specific optical pitch. The type of container used can be made of plastic, metal or ceramic, depending on the performance, price and strength requirements.

 


These are components usually made with a double package, suitable for coupling a plastic or glass optical fibre. They have emitters and receivers. These components allow optoelectronic communication between control parts of the machines, while maintaining galvanic isolation. They are widely used in the railway sector or in industrial environments, where great immunity to electromagnetic interference is required.

 


These are complex devices, based on a transducer with typical MEMS technology that is interrogated by a microcontroller, which provides a suitable output for the application by means of an algorithm. The inclinometer sensors are used in applications that check the planarity of work machines, that check the position of parts of electrical or hydraulic systems and also check the position in tracking photovoltaic systems. The vibration sensors are used in applications to check wind turbines and their parts or to check the vibration in industrial machinery.

 


These are optoelectronic devices based on emitters and receivers that work on the principle of reflection/refraction. They usually have integrated smart electronics that allow the transducer signals to be managed and reliable measurements to be provided.
The major applications are to measure ON/OFF levels or precise positions of mechanical parts.

 


These are complex devices, based on an optoelectronic transducer that consists of an array of photoelements and an illuminator. Working in reflection on a barcode, they measure the absolute position of the object on which the code is deposited. They are used for measuring mechanical parts of machinery directly on the object you want to know the position of. These sensors have a microcontroller that manages the measurement, processes the data, applies algorithms and any additional controls related to the reliability of the measurement. It also manages the most suitable type of output for the end user.
