Reflective Optical Sensor with Transistor Output
The TCRT5000(L) has a compact construction where
the emitting-light source and the detector are arranged
in the same direction to sense the presence of an ob-
ject by using the reflective IR beam from the object.
The operating wavelength is 950 mm. The detector
consists of a phototransistor.
Position sensor for shaft encoder
Detection of reflective material such as paper,
IBM cards, magnetic tapes etc.
Limit switch for mechanical motions in VCR
General purpose – wherever the space is limited
Snap-in construction for PCB mounting
Package height: 7 mm
Plastic polycarbonate housing construction
which prevents crosstalk
L = long leads
Current Transfer Ratio
(CTR) of typical 10%
Leads (3.5 mm)
Long leads (15 mm)
