Photoconductive cells

Click to the picture for a detailPhotoconductive cells are semiconductor elements changing their resistance value in dependence on the lighting conditions. TESLA BLATNÁ,a.s. manufactures photoconductive cells series with spectral sensitivity in range 530 - 720 nm (typical values of disipation power from 125 to 500 mW and values of operation voltage from 150 to 1 500V) and with different type of encapsulation - in glass capsule (type G09), single round ceramic plate (types K11, K25), metal case (type M08), ceramic plate in plastic case (types P13, P28) and single rectangular ceramic plate (type S44). The used photosensitive materials enable changing wavelenght for maximum sensitivity in range 540-730 nm (for short in type marking as 53, 56, 60, 65, 72). The resistance dependence on light is determined by the table resistance value at light 10 lx (in type marking as the middle of the tolerance range of the resistance value - f.e. as 10, 15, 20, 40).

Optocouplers with photoresistor

Click to the picture for a detailOptocouplers with photoresistor consist of light tight packaged light source (usually LED) and photoresistor. Through control of the input current or voltage applied to the optocoupler, the output resistance can be varied. The output resistance follows the input signal in analog manner. A small change in input signal can cause a large change in output resistance. The optocouplers with photoresistor have been found to provide a very economic and technically superior solution for many applications. Low distorsion characteristics namely at low voltages makes the optocouplers suitable for use in a number of applications, especially in audio circuits where they are used mostly for limiting, switching and gating and at the circuits with temperature dependent elements also for higher amplitude signals.
