Product overview

  • Highly sensitive linear NPN silicon phototransistor
  • Easily mountable into holes and preformed plastic sleeves
  • Clear plastic lens with 50 degree acceptance angle and very low dark current

A highly sensitive linear NPN silicon phototransistor, enclosed in a tubular 5mm plastic package that can be easily mounted into holes and preformed plastic sleeves, e.g., LED mounting assemblies.The device features a clear plastic lens, a 50° acceptance angle and a very low dark current. The collector has the shortest leg and is next to the flat on the package base.

Hi, would this be responsive to light from an LED ?

Asked by: Alss
It has a peak response at 850nm, but the specs state it is sensitive to light from 450nm to 1130nm. I would guess these limits are practical usable limits. If the output of your LED is within that range, it should work.

Hi Can you please tell me what the manufacturer and part number is for this phototransistor? Or if you could provide a hyperlink to the full datasheet that would be just as good.

Asked by: Simon
It's SFH-300 the part number , I've also emailed a copy of the data sheet .
