The device actuates when an object interruptsthe infrared LED packaged in the device, which can be driven with dc forward current up to 50 ma. Maximum reverse dc voltage is 5 V, and maximum power dissipation is 75 mW. The output phototransistor's collector-emitter breakdown voltage is 30 V, with an emitter-collector breakdown voltage of 5 V. Operating temperature range is 25 to 85°C. The switch housing has a 0.20-in. (5.08-mm) gap, and a 0.32-in. (8.13-mm) slot depth. The through-hole device mounts to a PC board with a footprint of 0.52 in. (13.2 mm) X 0.24 in. (6.1 mm), with a board-mounted profile of 0.40 in. (10.2 mm). Assembly services are available for volume orders, including PC board mounting, second-level wiring, or other operations.
