ITT Controls - Industrial Photo Cell

ITT Controls also sells photocells for industrial use. Photocells are often used for measurement instruments in the oil and gas industry.

Photocells are sensors that allow to detect light. They are very small, not expensive, low-power usage, easy to use and don't wear out. For that reason they often appear in toys and gadgets. They are often referred to as CdS cells, light dependent resistors (LDR), and photo resistors.

Photocells are in fact resistors that changes its resistive value depending on how much light is shining onto the squiggly face. They are very low cost, easy to get in many sizes and specifications, but are very inaccurate. Each photocell sensor will act a little differently than the other, even if they are from the same batch. The variations can be really large, 50% or higher! For this reason, they shouldn't be used to try to determine precise light levels in lux or millicandela. Instead, you can expect to only be able to determine basic light changes.

For most light-sensitive applications like "is it light or dark out", "is there something in front of the sensor (that would block light)", "is there something interrupting a laser beam" (break-beam sensors), or "which of multiple sensors has the most light hitting it", photocells can be a good choice.
