Low voltage. Mostly harmless…

Petes March 2, at To drive the LED, it has to be above 1. Photo diodes have always confused me a bit. Re-doing the math with these particular values gives the expected current for the LED: It was a photo-transistor.

This is a useful way to verify that an IR remote control is in fact transmitting. Under certain conditions, they will conduct electricity.

It was time to do some tests and measurements. The devices you present here do not appear to have that characteristic. Sean Straw July 8, at When a LED is forward biased, it emits light while the transistor switches and amplifies the colector-emitter current l-53p3 the base-emitter junction is forward biased.

All was fine, until the salesman at the local shop told me:. Dimitar Kovachev January 6, at This can be useful for driving a darlington or as input to an opamp or inamp. Use your smart phone or camera. Yes it did checked with a camera.

Dimitar Kovachev February 2, at Probably someone has misplaced them, when restocking. The image sensors pick up IR! Note that a reverse biased LED can conduct when light of a suitable wavelength is presented datashete centered around the wavelength which that LED emits when normally driven.

The final step was to take a digital multi-meter DMMset it to current measurement, 20mA range and complete the circuit:.

A LED or a phototransistor?!

Datahseet site uses cookies. Posted by Dimitar Kovachev. This leads us to our criteria — the current through a forward-biased LED is a constant; the current through a forward-biased PT varies with light.

Anyway, I purchased them. Mostly harmless… Exploring electronics, programming and photography. You are commenting using your Twitter account.

Leave a comment Comments Both pt and led as with photodiodes are composed of pn junctions and should theoretically light up when forward biased to eatasheet than their turn-on voltage. IR LED and a photo-transistor – which is which?
