The OPB815WZ consists of an infrared Light Emi?ng Diode (LED) and an NPN silicon phototransistor mounted in a low-cost plas?c housing. The device is designed to switch electrical states when an opaque object is passed through the slot. The slot is wider and deeper than many slo?ed switches and will accommodate a variety of different materials.
This device can be ordered with PCBoard solderable leads (OPB815L) or with 26 AWG stranded, UL rated wire length of 24” [610 mm] (OPB815WZ).
Custom electrical, wire and cabling and connectors are available. Contact your local representa?ve or OPTEK for more informa?on.
