Advanced Photonix, a division of OSI Optoelectronics, introduces Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) Light-Dependent Resistors (LDRs), specially designed to sense light from 400 nm to 700 nm. The photoconductive devices’ resistance decreases as the light level increases, representing the efficiency characteristics of the human eye. The photoresistors, or photocells, are available with various resistance values and packaging.
CdS photoresistors are ideal for street and solar lighting, audio compression and flame detection, camera light meters, and exposure and shutter controls applications. They can also be utilized in clock radios, alarm devices, outdoor clocks, and night light controls.
According to Hooman Shakouri, Sr. Director, Business Development at Advanced Photonix, “We are delighted to announce that our company is one of the largest global manufacturers and suppliers of Cadmium Sulfide photocells with the largest portfolio available of these light-sensing devices.”
