  • Phototransistors-Image
    Phototransistors - (92 companies)
    Phototransistors are solid-state light detectors with internal gain that are used to provide analog or digital signals. They detect visible, ultraviolet and near-infrared light from a variety of sources and are more sensitive than photodiodes...

  • Light Curtains-Image
    Light Curtains - (229 companies)
    Light curtains are photoelectric transmitters that project infrared beams to a receiver. They are used to guard openings and work spaces in or around machinery. When an opaque object interrupts the infrared beam, a stop signal is sent...

    HPLC Detectors - (49 companies)
    High performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) detectors pass a beam of light through a column effluent as the fluid passes through a low-volume flow cell. Variations in light intensity are recorded and a chromatograph is generated. HPLC detectors use...
