What is an optical sensor type?

Optical sensors convert light rays into electronic signals to measure the amount of light and, in some cases, translate that information for an integrated measuring device to read. Optical sensors can measure either LED or laser light sources in a range of applications.

These are the types of optical sensors:

  • Point Sensors and Distributed Sensors
  • Extrinsic Sensors and Intrinsic Sensors
  • Through-Beam Sensors, Retro-Reflective Sensors, and Diffuse Reflection Sensors


I/L curve measurement of LD module
The I-L curve, drive current – optical power characteristics, of laser diodes can be measured accurately, quickly and seamlessly.
Because, the single-range power range of the new sensor head is as wide as 30 dB.
It enables to measure signals close to a threshold value at high resolution without changing the gain of amplifier circuit which takes extra time.

Experiment of free space optics
In experiments of free-space optics, optical parts are set on an optical bench or a breadboard, and the adjustment of optical alignment is most time consuming work.
The new optical sensor head is compatible with the 60 mm cage system.
It make it easy to build a optical experiment systems by combining with various cage system parts in the marketplace.
