Now, exactly Ohms isn’t a standard value. That calculation looks good. Higher resistance gives more sensitivity.
Do you want to test dtaasheet for practical photographic purposes, or something more scientific? For faster shutter speeds I wouldn’t want to rely on the measured time between the shutter beginning to open and completely closing to determine the effective shutter speed. Please do not ask for unpaid help via PM, use the forum.
Two other points occur to me: Adding a second battery to increase the voltage may help. I previously used a quite simple and reasonably accurate method of testing shutters in large format lenses for practical purposes, by filming the shutter opening and closing using a basic mini-dv camcorder.
Why people publish such daft and needlessly precise values, I don’t know.
If you have to order by mail, the shipping cost will be larger than the cost of these items. Exposure tests are more reliable in those circumstances.
In older texts us electrical engineers often used uuF for picofarads; ie pF. As you can see in the quicky picture below, they have a flatter top than the BPW Or do we datashwet the current is fixed at 5mA and try to ensure the voltage drop across the phototransistor is correct to toggle the reading at the collector?
The process of shutter opening and closing takes a significant amount of time in relation to the overall shutter speed, and during those periods the shutter is acting as a variable aperture – both reducing the amount of light that gets through so the effective speed is shorter than the measured speed, and also affecting the recorded diffraction and depth of field. Since i broke my previous one’s i bought some new ones. Since it is the 5RC value that is important, any values of R and C that produce 5RC in the range of say microseconds should work.
The value of R should not be bp4w0 significantly, since that could lead to the phototransistor being effectively short circuited – if in doubt, choose a higher value for R. You’ll probably have difficulty sourcing a pF capacitor too.

Does anyone – more fluent in electronic components – know where I can buy the following They’re used for a bunch of things, but mainly to isolate two parts of a circuit electrically, using light as a one-way bridge across what would otherwise be a non-conductive air space.
About the detector, the wpb40 that one is next. The OP in that bpww40 thread I linked to ended up using K, because he needed enough sensitivity to detect the emitter when it was 10 inches away from the phototransistor.
This gives us ohms. Datasbeet this schematic correct? I picked up datasheeh or 3 several years ago for playing around with but can’t tell you much about them except they’re easy to wire up to demonstrate they’re sensitive to light.
Bringing the recording into any basic DV editing software that comes for free with modern computers, allows you to datzsheet count the number of frames the shutter is open for at a given shutter speed – so that a one second exposure should have the shutter open for 25 frames PAL or 30 frames NTSC.
Maybe at faster speeds a different spring is active. Let’s say i want 25mA.

The last page of the datasheet shows the voltage drop for other bps40 flows so you could use this to adjust the resistor to reduce the current flow if necessary hint: Wow – this is complicated stuff.
Your name or email address: When these homebrew schematic are published one may find oneself placing resistors or caps in parallel to meet some value that really doesnt matter, or radically does matter. When there is no light there will be no current and Vce will be the supply voltage.
Is this reasoning correct? Note this is super simplified to a first approximation only datashest it will do to work with. In electronic circuits, some values can be fairly critical, while others may not matter within an order of magnitude unless you are e.
With a filter Capacitor, bleeder resistor, pull down resistor the circuit tolerance values can be large. Use or pF, it doesn’t have to be too accurate for this application.

But, I’m moreso looking for a source of the parts rather than a revision or rehashing of the technology. I had a wide selection of many small components right in the same room with me. If it’s NTSC it shoots even faster, at The original thread http: For use, remove the lens es from the camera or shutter to be tested, and just use a domestic filament bulb, or even a small torch as the light source.
Better electronic part stores usually have books that suggest substitions, so if they don’t have the exact part you can try their suggested substition from what they stock.
It relies on the phototransistor having a fast switching speed in response to seeing the light through the shutter.

Saying that you want a pF capacitor and a Ohm resistor is like saying that you want a 1. But this is only a guess since you haven’t referenced the circuit diagram.
Nevertheless my tests suported the repair guy’s assertion. The other consideration is the amount of charge stored by the capacitor, and any leakage through the recording circuit. Chris, You may well be right – I would never claim to know much datsaheet the engineering in a datasbeet shutter – the information I quoted came from a camera repair guy who calibrated the shutter on an old Schneider S.
Anyway, if you are operating the LED under these conditions you will need to a resistor to ensure the current isn’t too high. I mounted the sensor in a piece of opaque plastic panel, cut to 60 bpw0 35mm in size.
