Compact Optical Switch suits non-contact switching environments.

Press Release Summary:




Integrating GaAs IR LED emitter, silicon NPN phototransistor, and photosensitive receiver optimized for short distances, ITR1201SR10A/TR reflective type opto interrupter offers cut-off visible wavelength of below 700 nm. Double molding manufacturing process results in smooth surface that promotes reliability. With flat, 1.5 mm profile, reflective sensor offers stable collector current and is suited for use in printers, copiers, and scanners as well as non-contact switching environments.



Original Press Release:



EVERLIGHT Electronics Introduces a Highly Reliable, Compact Optical Switch for Office Equipment and Non-contact Switching Applications



The new reflective type opto interrupter ITR1201 integrates an infrared emitter and a silicon phototransistor in a plastic double molding housing



Shulin, New Taipei City – EVERLIGHT ELECTRONICS CO., LTD. [TSE:2393, a leading player in the global LED and optoelectronics industry, introduces a new member of its ITR series of reflective sensors for use in printers, copiers, scanners and for non-contact switching environments like a proximity sensor.



The reflective type opto interrupter ITR1201SR10A/TR is a light reflection switch which includes a GaAs IR-LED and an NPN phototransistor with a highly photosensitive receiver for short distances, operating in the infrared range. Other key features are a fast response time, a very stable collector current, a cut-off visible wavelength of below 700 nm and an improved MSL (moisture sensitivity level) from level 4 to 3.



A characteristic of EVERLIGHT's ITR product range is the double molding manufacturing process. Compared to the traditional glue dispense manufacturing process, double molding results in a smoother surface which not only enhances the look but also raises the reliability. A flat profile of only 1.5 mm makes the new ITR1201 is even more compact.



EVERLIGHT's reflective and transmissive optical ICs of the ITR family are Pb-free and RoHS compliant.
