Part Number:  D100048


Applications: Friction experiments, measurement of time interval, speed and velocity. Measurement of acceleration, momentum, kinetic energy and simple harmonic motion. Period counting. Study of propeller design (as a tacho), pendulum timing.

Because the device is a switch which can only be on or off you need to provide it withthe highest ‘contrast’ of light/dark as possible. By facing a suitable light source opposite the light switch, a ‘light gate’ is formed which can detect passing objects.

Nominal sensitivity bandwidth: 450-1050 nanometers

Peak sensor response: 850 nanometers
