Capable of effective operation in sunlight with intensities up to 200 kLux, the TCND3000 surface-mount, reflective optical sensor integrates touch and proximity functions and operates with an E909.01 integrated circuit built on ELMOS Semiconductorâ€™s high ambient light independent optical system technology. The sensor combines an IR emitter as the source for touch/proximity signals, another for ambient light compensation, and a photo diode as the receiver for touch/proximity signals. It provides contact-free detection of movement through a translucent surface, allowing proximity detection at a distance of 2 cm and touch detection at 1 cm from the sensor surface. Other features include an operating voltage of 5V, ±20° angle of half-sensitivity, an 870-nm operating wavelength, and an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. Additionally, the component is available in a lead-free package measuring 5 mm x 2.6 mm. VISHAY INTERTECHNOLOGY INC., Malvern, PA. (408) 567-8347.
