EVERLIGHT presents new ITR 1502 for non-contact sensing applications

elpm1609_Everlight_ITR1502_300dpi_15x15EVERLIGHT ELECTRONICS CO., LTD., a leading player in the global LED and optoelectronics industry, introduces a new reflector type photo interruptor. The ITR1502 series can sense an object and give signal response at an exceptionally long distance of 4 mm at a speed of 20 μs, in contrast to a usual distance of 0.5 to 1.0mm.

Add to that, EVERLIGHT’s cost-effective new ITR1502 has passed MSL3 for moisture sensitive SMD components. Popular ITR applications are paper feed and edge detection in printers as well as motor revolution detection in projectors and other non-contact sensing applications. Other possible fields of use include factory and industrial automation.

EVERLIGHT’s ITR1502 is a reflective photo interrupter which consists of an infrared emitting diode and an NPN silicon phototransistor that provides non-contact sensing. The product operates with a standard wavelength of940nm at VCE=2V and IF=4mA, the maximum current is 450μA. Its unique double molding manufacturing process, combining transfer and injection molding, makes the end product more firm and solid. [DELETE, TOO REDUNDANT: In addition to its exceptionally long focal distance, quick response speed and MSL level]. This compact package device (4.0*3.0*2.0 mm) effectively blocks visible light and minimizes false detection.

The professional R&D, sales and marketing team of EVERLIGHT is always on a quest for innovations and technical breakthrough. EVERLIGHT provides a complete ITR portfolio, with reflective types for distance detection and transmissive types for object detection in many sizes, drive currents and wavelengths for different options. In the future, EVERLIGHT will add more advanced improvements to ITR families. EVERLIGHT always focuses on what the clients need and provides one-stop optoelectronics solutions for every need.
