Modulated light-beam circuit

Posted on Jul 26, 2012

Feedback control of the phototransistor in this optical detector helps negate the effects of varying ambient light sources. The output of a modulated visible-light LED is detected, amplified, buffered, and fed through a low-pass filter.

Ambient light signals below the LED's 10-kHz modulating rate reach the detector's base out of phase with incoming ambient light and cancel the undesired effects.
