The TCRT5000 reflective photoelectric sensor integrates both an infrared light emitting diode and a phototransistor which can be used as a detector for the reflected signal.

The TCRT5000 and TCRT5000L are reflective sensors which include an infrared emitter and phototransistor in a leaded package which blocks visible light. The package includes two mounting clips. TCRT5000L is the long lead version.
