Lanbao PR18S-TM10DNO Photoelectric Tripwire Sensor - 10m

ID: 3525_0
Recommended for new designs: Phidgets Inc. is not the original manufacturer for this product, but we intend to sell it (or a similar replacement with a compatible form, fit and function) for as long as it is available from the supplier.

Like a tripwire, this sensor detects when an opaque object breaks the IR beam between the emitter and receiver.

The 3525 uses the most reliable and accurate style of photoelectric sensing which is the through beam sensor. The sensor comes with an emitter and a receiver. The emitter provides a constant invisible IR (infrared) beam of light to the receiver and detection occurs when an object passing between the two breaks the beam. The photo detection range of the 3525 is up to 10 meters.

A very familiar application of a through beam photoelectric sensor can be found is right in your home. Quite often, a garage door opener has a through beam photoelectric sensor mounted near the floor, across the width of the door. This sensor is making sure nothing is in the path of the door when it is closing.

The Phidgets Digital Input is "off" when the receiver receives the transmitter signal (i.e. there are no objects between the transmitter and the receiver); the Digital Input is "on" when the beam is broken by the presence of an object.


You can use a 12V sensor adapter to connect this sensor to your InterfaceKit or Hub. See the Connection & Compatibility tab for more details.

12V Sensor Adapter

This sensor requires a 12V power supply and outputs a 0-5V signal depending on wheter the sensor is triggered. For a simple way to provide 12 volts, you can use our 12V sensor adapter. It uses the 5V supply from your InterfaceKit or Hub and steps it up to 12V while simultaneously passing the 0-5V signal from the sensor into the Phidget cable.

To connect the sensor, connect the wires as follows:

Alternatively, you can use the Versatile Input Phidget, which is a VINT-controlled device that can interface a wide variety of sensors, including transducers that run on a 12V supply.

12V Power Supplies

The emitter for this sensor requires a 12V power supply. If you're only powering this one emitter, you can choose a power supply with an amperage as low as 500mA. Select the power supply from the list below that matches your region's wall socket type. For most power supplies, the positive wire is the white one, or one with the dashed white line on it.
