A photomicro sensor is a device that uses light to determine the presence or absence of an object or its position.
It is generally divided into a transmission type photointerrupter and a reflection type photoreflector.
After emitting light, the state of the object can be measured by examining how the light returns. Infrared LEDs are commonly used as the light emitting element.
Photomicro sensors use light to detect objects, but the appropriate method depends on the application.
First, there are transmissive photo interrupters. These are highly reliable devices because the object to be measured is sandwiched between the transmitting and receiving terminals. For example, they are used to detect objects that require high accuracy, such as cash or tickets.
Next is a reflective photo reflector. This method is suitable for measuring objects that are some distance away because of the structure of the target object that reflects and receives the emitted light.
There are various methods of photomicro sensors depending on the application.
