HOA2005 Series Transmissive Optoschmitt Sensor, Transistor Output, Plastic Package.
The HOA2005 consists of an infrared emitting diode facing an Optoschmitt detector encased in a black thermoplastic housing. The photodetector consists of a photodiode, amplifier, voltage regulator, Schmitt trigger and an NPN output transistor with 10 kOhm (nominal) pull-up resistor. The buffer logic provides a high output when the optical path is clear, and a low output when the path is blocked. The side mounting package is useful in applications in which the interruptive element is parallel to the mounting plane. Both emitter and detector have a 0.010 in (0.25 mm) x 0.060 in (1.52 mm) vertical aperture. This feature is ideal for use in applications in which maximum position resolution is desired.
All devices employ a built-in strain relief for maximum wire attachment strength. The sensor housing contains IR transmissive optical windows. This arrangement provides excellent protection against ambient light while eliminating aperture openings which could be clogged by airborne contaminants. The HOA2005 series employs plastic molded components. For additional component information see SEP8506, and SDP8600.
Housing material is polycarbonate. Housings are soluble in chlorinated hydrocarbons and ketones. Recommended cleaning agents are methanol and isopropanol.
