DESCRIPTION

The H21A1, H21A2 and H21A3 consist of a

gallium arsenide infrared emitting diode

coupled with a silicon phototransistor in a

plastic housing. The packaging system is

designed to optimize the mechanical

resolution, coupling efficiency, ambient light

rejection, cost and reliability. The gap in the

housing provides a means of interrupting the

signal with an opaque material, switching the

output from an “ON” to an “OFF” state.

SCHEMATIC

FEATURES

• Opaque housing

• Low cost

• .035” apertures

• High I C(ON)

1. Derate power dissipation linearly 1.33 mW/°C above 25°C.

2. RMA flux is recommended.

3. Methanol or isopropyl alcohols are recommended as cleaning agents.

4. Soldering iron tip 1/16” (1.6mm) minimum from housing.
