The HOA1887 series consists of an infrared emitting diode facing an NPN silicon phototransistor (HOA1887-011, -012)or photodarlington (HOA1887-013)encased in a black thermoplastic housing. Detector switching takes place whenever an opaque object passes through the slot between emitter and detector. 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 0.60 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 HOA1887 series contains plastic molded components. For additional component information see SEP8506, SDP8406, and SDP8106.
Housing material is polycarbonate. Housings are soluble in chlorinated hydrocarbons and ketones. Recommended cleaning agents are methanol and isopropanol.
Wire color and functions are:
Red - IRED Anode
Black - IRED Cathode
White - Detector Collector
