Light Sensors

The light sensor is a passive device that converts the light energy into an electrical signal output. Light sensors are more commonly known as Photoelectric Devices or Photo Sensors because they convert light energy (photons) into electronic signal (electrons). Phototransistors, photoresistors, and photodiodes are some of the more common type of light intensity sensors.


Photoelectric sensors use a beam of light to detect the presence or absence of an object. It emits a light beam (visible or infrared) from its light-emitting element. A reflective-type photoelectric sensor is used to detect the light beam reflected from the target. A beam of light is emitted from the light emitting element and is received by the light receiving element. Both the light emitting and light receiving elements are contained in a single housing. The sensor receives the light reflected from the target.


A phototransistor, on the other hand, uses the level of light it detects to determine how much current can pass through the circuit. So, if the sensor is in a dark room, it only lets a small amount of current to flow. If it detects a bright light, it lets a larger amount of current flow. A photoresistor is made of cadmium sulphide whose resistance is maximum when the sensor is in dark. When the photoresistor is exposed to light, its resistance drops in proportion to the intensity of light. When interfaced with a circuit and balanced with potentiometer, the change in light intensity will show up as change in voltage. These sensors are simple, reliable, and cheap, used widely for measuring light intensity.
