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 【2015.03.23】–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.

Sample Available: Yes. (Upon request)
