Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. introduces its transmissive (interrupter) optical sensors that are qualified to the AEC Q101 standard. Models TCPT1300X01 and TCUT1300X01 have a Moisture Sensitivity Level rating of 1 (MSL1) which means they have an unlimited floor life. These sensors offer a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, enabling them to work in low- and high-temperature environments. With a 3.0 mm gap width, they can be used with a variety of materials, and they allow for looser mechanical tolerances than sensors with smaller gaps, making them suitable for automotive and industrial applications. The sensors are RoHS-compliant, free of halogens and compatible with lead-free soldering.
