Practical Quad Photo-Detector Circuit
The next circuit is for a practical 4 photo-detector circuit using an LM339 Quad comparator IC. Although phototransistors are shown, photocells could also be used with the corresponding change in values for resistors R1 through R4. This circuit can also be used for infrared detector circuits as shown above. The values for resistors R7 through R10 can also be changed depending on the required LED current.   (View)

Infrared Light Photo-Detector Circuit
In this circuit the light falling on the phototransistor will be from an Infrared Light Emitting Diode (IrLED) but otherwise it is the same as the phototransistor circuit shown above. When the light falling on the phototransistor (Q1) is blocked, its conductance will decrease and the voltage across Q1 will rise. When the voltage rises above 1/2 of the supply voltage the output of the comparator will turn ON and the LED will be lit.   (View)

Basic CdS Photocell Detector
In this circuit, when the light falling on the photocell (PC 1) is blocked, its resistance will increase and the voltage across PC 1 will rise. When the voltage rises above 1/2 of the supply voltage the output of the comparator will turn ON and the LED will be lit. Due to wide variations in CdS photocells it is usually best to install the cell and then measure its resistance under normal lighting conditions. A resistor with a value that is approximately 3 to 5 times the measured resistance of the cell is then selected for R1. For example; If the cell resistance is measured at 400 ohms then a 1200 to 2200 ohms resistor would be used. Increasing the value of R1 will cause the sensitivity of the sensor to decrease. This may be necessary when the light falling on the cell is not very strong or shadows can affect the photocell. This circuit can be adapted for use in dark areas by placing a small light above the photocell.   (View)
