Both pt and led as with photodiodes are composed of pn junctions and should theoretically light up when forward biased to greater than datazheet turn-on voltage. So a LED will light and a phototransistor will not. The final step was to take a digital multi-meter DMMset it to current measurement, 20mA range and complete the circuit:.

This is a useful way to verify that an IR remote control is in fact transmitting.

This can be useful for driving a darlington or as input to an opamp or inamp. The LED is blue, the phototransistor is clear.

Dimitar Kovachev January 6, at Kenneth Olsen January 4, at It was time to do some tests and measurements. Not sure if your confusion about which component is which got resolved.

Low voltage. Mostly harmless…

Leave a comment Comments Photo diodes have always confused me a bit. Tony Roberts January 6, at Re-doing the math with these particular values gives the expected current for the LED: Probably someone has misplaced them, when restocking.

LEDs and photo-transistors -l53f3bt be wired in a similar way — using a current-limiting resistor in series. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Skip to navigation Skip to main content Skip to primary sidebar Skip to secondary sidebar Skip to footer Low voltage.


Chanced upon this post, and while the proper testing of the components to electrically differentiate the two is useful knowledge, but thought it worth mentioning: A LED or a phototransistor?! When forward-biased, the current through the photo-transistor is proportional to the amount of light.

Petes March 2, at When a LED is forward biased, it datashet light while the transistor switches and amplifies the colector-emitter current if the base-emitter junction is forward biased. Yes it did checked with a camera. To drive the LED, it has to be above 1. All was fine, until the salesman at the local shop told me:.
