With a filter Capacitor, bleeder resistor, pull down resistor the circuit tolerance values can be large. As you can see in the quicky picture below, they have bpw400 flatter top than the BPW But, I’m moreso looking for a source of the parts rather than a revision or rehashing of the technology.

Let’s say i want 25mA. You can test that the circuit works by operating in reverse – hook it up, with the phototransistor exposed to light, then cover the phototransistor and uncover it again. This gives us ohms. The datasheet tells us here that the voltage drop is 1.

The circuit datzsheet very simple.

Why people publish such daft and needlessly precise values, I don’t know. A great opportunity for “experientation”.

So what do i need? Maybe at faster speeds a different spring is active. Regarding the resistor R2 connected to the phototransistor, the value you need depends on how sensitive you want the detector to be.

I use a period counter for the actual measurement, but plugging the sensor into a computer soundcard would do just as well. The phototransistor has to be shielded from light other dztasheet the beam that shines through the shutter, otherwise it will simply keep the circuit permanently on don’t leave the battery in circuit when not in use – do the tests in subdued lighting.

Ok, so mA is too much current for those things. Wow – this is complicated stuff. If it’s PAL it shoots at 25 frames a second, has time code, and is pretty accurate by design. Bought a calumet tester couldn’t be happier.

Often in experimenters home brew circuits the component values are just something a chap had lying around. Better electronic part stores usually have books that suggest substitions, so if they don’t have the exact part you can try their suggested substition from what they stock.

Now, exactly Ohms isn’t a standard value. Two other points occur to me: The purpose of R2 is to translate that current into a voltage drop that can be sensed by the Arduino. Here’s a link to the items in the online catalogue: If the color response is different, you might have to use a different light source.

Sorry for not attaching a reference. I bought all the crap put one together didn’t work fussed with it.

datazheet So we need to choose a resistor that limits the current flow to 5mA, which would be 1kOhm. It relies on the phototransistor having a fast switching speed in response to seeing the light through the shutter. Nevertheless my tests bps40 the repair guy’s assertion.

If you have to order by mail, the shipping cost will be larger than the cost of these items. You must log in or sign up to reply here. You’re unlikely to get the phototransistor to draw more than a few mA even if you place to right next to the emitter. The IR irradiance has the effect of base current.
