• Infrared Optical Photoelectric Switches

The TCRT5000 and TCRT5000L are reflective sensors which include an infrared emitter and phototransistor in a leaded package which blocks visible light. The package includes two mounting clips. TCRT5000L is the long lead version.

Features of TCRT5000 Reflective Infrared Optical Sensor Photoelectric Switch:

  • Package type: leaded.
  • Detector type: phototransistor.
  • Dimensions (L x W x H in mm): 10.2 x 5.8 x 7.
  • Peak operating distance: 2.5 mm.
  • Operating range within > 20 % relative collector current: 0.2 mm to 15 mm.
  • Typical output current under test: IC = 1 mA.
  • Daylight blocking filter.
  • Emitter wavelength: 950 nm.


  • Position sensor for shaft encoder.
  • Detection of reflective material such as paper, IBM cards, magnetic tapes etc.
  • Limit switch for mechanical motions in VCR.
  • General purpose – wherever the space is limited.
  • For DIY projects requiring IR based optical sensing.
