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 nine different product families of reliable, cost-effective, off-the-shelf optoelectronic sensor solutions
Make a selection to narrow in on the product that's right for you.
Typically used when emitter & detector cannot be located on opposing sides of an object, object is not opaque, or for presence/position detection.
Multiple package styles, mounting configurations, slot widths, & aperture windows – choice of phototransistor, photodarlington, or Optoschmitt output.
IR LED sensors facing Optoschmitt detector in plastic molded housing – switching occurs when opaque object passes between emitter & detector.
Detectors consist of a photodiode, amplifier, voltage regulator, Schmitt trigger, & output stage with common output types.
Photodarlington detectors provide non-linear, high gain analog output, typ. for lower light input, greater distances, or higher current output needed.
Photodiode detectors offer very linear, high-speed analog output. Often used in encoders & data transfer applications.
Phototransistors are often used in commercial/industrial analog output applications where a non-linear, fast-to-medium speed response is required.
Infrared sensors in metal, plastic, & ceramic packages, resistant to moisture & solvents, designed for commercial & industrial applications.
