Infrared Sensors Line Guide

infared sensors

Solid, sensitive solutions. Optoelectronics integrates optical principles and semi-conductor electronics — the inter-conversion of electricity to light. In electronic systems where feedback and control systems are common, these infrared sensors are often critical.

Honeywell Sensing and Control offers 13 different product families of reliable, cost-effective, off-the-shelf optoelectronic sensor solutions for many potential applications:

  • Printers and copiers
  • Metering and data storage systems
  • Liquid-level sensing
  • Motion control
  • Scanning
  • Automated transactions
  • Barcode reader
  • Drop sensors
  • Other medical equipment

We also provide a wide array of custom solutions ranging from special electrical selections, special markings, wiring, and connectors to completely unique housings or integrated circuits.

low light rejection phototransistors

low light rejection phototransistors

 

  • Standard phototransistor with advantage of low light immunity
  • Phototransistor switching occurs when incident light increases above threshold (knee point)
  • When the light level exceeds the knee point of the device, it functions as a standard phototransistor.
  • Provides high contrast ratio in reflective applications where unwanted background reflection may exist
