The circuit is very simple. I use a period counter for the actual measurement, but plugging the sensor into a computer soundcard would do just as well. When there is no light there will be no current and Vce will be the supply voltage.

The IR irradiance has the effect of base datazheet. Now, exactly Ohms isn’t a standard value. The other consideration is the amount of charge stored by the capacitor, and any leakage through the recording circuit.
This time determines the width of the blip seen in the trace recorded on the PC. This is probably the problem encountered by the previous poster.
The OP in that other thread I linked to ended up using K, because he needed enough sensitivity to detect the emitter when it was 10 inches away from the phototransistor.
But, I’m moreso looking for a source of the datasyeet rather than a revision or rehashing of the technology.
From a websearch, BPW is a part datashdet for a particular phototransitor. The original thread http: One poster said they had built the device using the schematic and parts list.

Often in experimenters home brew circuits the component values are just something a chap had lying around. Here’s a link to the items in the online catalogue: I built a homemade shuttertester some time ago. Since it is the 5RC value that is important, any values of R and C that produce 5RC in the range of say microseconds should work.
Anyway, if you are operating the LED under these conditions you will need to a resistor to ensure the current isn’t too high.
Ok, so mA is too much current for those things. The choice of phototransistor is not very bpd40 – most have enough response at the typical wavelength of a laser pointer to trigger the circuit, and the switching delay is quite short relative to the shutter speed typically a few microseconds.

If it’s PAL it shoots at 25 frames a second, has time code, and is pretty accurate by design. The sensor output goes to the pulse counter through cheap screened figure-of-eight audio cable. It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter’s Law.

Also i don’t see a voltage drop, is that because it depends on the amount of light it is receiving? Or do we assume the current is fixed ratasheet 5mA and try to ensure the voltage drop across the phototransistor is correct to toggle the reading at the collector? It is not critical – though obviously if it becomes too long then the blip will not be complete before the shutter closes, and if it is too short then it will probably be filtered out by recording circuitry.
The value of R should not be decreased significantly, since that could lead to the phototransistor being effectively short circuited – datashet in doubt, choose a higher value for R. The capacitor is then charged up at a rate that depends on the value of the capacitor C and the resistor Rwhich takes approximately 5RC to fully charge.
Now that the holiday vatasheet is over, I’ll make some phone calls to eatasheet outlets. Your name or email address: I picked up 2 or 3 several years ago for playing around with but can’t tell you much about them except they’re easy to wire up to demonstrate they’re sensitive to light. Since i broke my previous one’s i bought some new ones. If it’s NTSC it shoots even faster, at So let’s say i want 25mA is that good? So we need to choose a resistor that limits the current flow to 5mA, which would be 1kOhm.
