Vishay TCUT1800X01 product picture

The TCUT1800X01 is a 4-channel transmissive sensor designed for incremental and absolute encoder applications. The sensor combines two infrared emitters with four detector channels in a small, 5.5 x 5.85 x 7mm surface mount package.

In combination with an application specific code wheel or strip, the sensor is ideally suited for a wide range of applications.

The integration of four channels into the automotive-qualified package also makes this sensor an excellent choice for more complex applications.
