Note:  All units feature 1mm aperture. All NTE Photon Coupled Interrupter Modules are manufactured using a gallium arsenide emitting diode coupled to a silicon phototransistor or darlington. The gap in the housing provides a means of interrupting the signal with an opaque material thereby switching the output from "ON" into an "OFF" state.
