Phidgets IR Reflective Sensor 5mm




$6.67 ea.

This sensor uses infrared technology to detect an object at 5mm by determining the difference between low reflective conditions (i.e. black) and high reflective conditions (i.e. white).

Description [Hide]

The 33370 sensor consists of an infrared emitting diode and an NPN silicon phototransistor mounted side by side on a converging optical axis in a black plastic housing. The phototransistor responds to radiation from the emitting diode only when a reflective object passes within its field of view. The area of the optimum response approximates a circle .5mm in diameter.

Comes packaged with a 60cm Sensor Cable.

This sensor connects to an Analog Input on the PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 or on the PhidgetTextLCD.
