Not sure if your confusion about which component is which got resolved. It was a photo-transistor. So a LED will light and a phototransistor will not. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.

Infrared Emitting Diode

Yes it did checked with a camera. It was time to do some tests and measurements. How would you go around this issue but with a phototransistor and a photodiode? To drive the LED, it has to be above 1.

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: LEDs and photo-transistors can be wired in a l-5f33bt way — using a current-limiting resistor in series.

The final step was to take a digital multi-meter DMMset it to current measurement, 20mA range and complete the circuit:. Note that a reverse biased LED can conduct when light of a suitable wavelength is presented generally centered around the wavelength which that LED emits when normally driven.

Thanks for writing this up!

The devices you present here do not appear to have that characteristic. This is a useful way to verify that an IR remote control is in fact transmitting. All was fine, until the salesman at the local shop told me:. IR LED and a photo-transistor – which datashee which?

When a LED is forward biased, it emits light while the transistor switches and amplifies the colector-emitter current if the base-emitter junction is forward biased.

Photo diodes have always confused me a bit. Re-doing the math with these particular values gives the expected current for the LED: Tony Roberts January 6, at This site uses cookies.
