Visible Light Detector for Security Lighting (PT-A6) Plate Edge

Visible Light Detector for Security Lighting (PT-A6-BC-3-PE-520)

Direct Visible Light Detector for Security Lighting with Near Human Eye Photopic Response.

Photodiodes do not react to light in the same manner as human eyes do. A persons eye is insensitive to infra-red (a wave length more than 780nm) and also to ultra-violet light (a wave length under 380nm). A typical plastic photodiode, however, senses light at any wave length between 300nm and 1100nm. This means that the designer’s first challenge is to remove the IR and UV components from the sensor’s output.

The (PT-A6) Visible Light Detector family using high quality chip packaging and processing super-plated infrared filter membrane on chip surface, so this sensor can fully filter infrared interference. It is no need to add the casing and extra filter and effective filtering out the effect of light reflection due to infrared emission on security products.

By selecting the accuracy of chips, under strict management of production process, (PT-A6) visible light sensors finished batch consistency uniform. The consistency is 3 to 5 times higher on comparison of similar photosensitive devices. The precision can be controlled as narrow as 10%. Fully meet the customer requirements for starting the LUX value. Direct taking the advantage of temperature compensation internal process on the chip, (PT-A6) features one times higher temperature resistance than other similar products while working on high temperature environment.

Visible Light Detector (TPT3PE) Precaution Usage :

  1. The light source : Select 590nm LED Surface light source.

Mounting :

  1. While packages are on one circuit board, avoid mismatching in the thermal expansion of each component, generate cracks in the package and break the bonding wire.

Soldering :

  1. Do not immerse plastic parts in tin tank.
  2. During soldering, when adding thermal stress in a moisture absorbing state, moisture evaporates, swells and generates stress to the internal package.
  3. To avoid swellings and cracks in the surface of the package, followsoldering conditions below.
  4. Wave soldering method: 120°C < 60s、260°C < 5s.
  5. Manual soldering: 260°C < 5s、340°C < 3s.

Lead-forming and cuttings :

  1. Before soldering, perform lead forming at normal temperature.
  2. While forming or cutting the lead, stay the area at a distance of 5 mm or greater from the root of the lead.
  3. Avoid mounting which may cause force on the root of the lead.

Storage :

The sensor is incorporated in the transparent resin package. Because of its sensitivity to humidity, the package is moisture-proof. When storing the sensor, do as instructed below.
  1. Quickly use after opening. (within 2 days, below 30 °C/60 % R.H.).
  2. Once unpacked, use within three months, or keeping within a moisture-proof method, which include maintaining within a moisture-proof container with silica gels, is suggested for longterm safe-keeping.
  3. Very bad storage conditions may deteriorate solderability or characteristics, and defect the appearance. Recommended conditions of the storage place, temperature 0°C to 30 °C, humidity below 60% R.H. (Avoid freezingand dew condensation).

Cleaning :

  1. Do not wash with water to avoid corrosion.
  2. Under any circumstance, the cleaning time should be within 1 minute of normal temperature.
  3. Alcohol is recommended as a cleaning agent when cleaning products.
  4. If you use other cleaning agents, you need to confirm whether the cleaning agent will corrode the epoxy body.
  5. Freon can not be used as a cleaning agent.
  6. When cleaning products with ultrasonic cleaning, ultrasonic power and time should be less than 300W and 30 seconds, respectively.
  7. PCB and product can not touch the oscillator. Can not make the product on the PCB resonance.
  8. This model is static sensitive devices, so static electricity and surges can damage the product.
  9. To all the equipment, machines, tables, and the ground must be anti-static ground.
  10. Requires the use of anti-static wrist strap wear.
