Product Description: IR Beam Interruption Sensor - LED 3 mm - 0-50 cm
The sensor reacts to an interruption of the beam of infrared light that is transmitted between the transmitter and receiver. When the beam is interrupted by another object, the receiver signals this event by lighting up. The module is equipped with a 3 mm IR LED with an illumination angle of 10°. Beam interruption systems are used e.g. in measuring gates.
