Compact cadmium sulphide light dependant photo resistor housed in a 5mm diameter package with a 3mm lead pitch.
A photoresistor / light-dependent resistor (LDR) or photocell is a light controlled variable resistor. The resistance of a photoresistor decreases with increasing incident light intensity.
A photoresistor can be applied in light sensitive detector circuits, and light and dark activated switching circuits.
