Infrared Light is not visible to the human eye. This makes it useful for remote applications, for example, most TV remotes use an Infrared LED such to send signals to your television. Add these IR phototransistors to your projects to allow them to interact with invisible IR beams sent from IR LEDs and IR emitting devices (remotes, wii controllers, etc)!


  • Infrared Phototransistor
  • 5mm diameter
  • 940nm wavelength (most common wavelength for Infrared devices)
