Jul 29, 2012 ... If you're planning to have the sensor in a bright area and use a 10KΩ ... voltage reading and use that to determine how bright the red LED is.
Nearly all photocells will have slightly different specifications, although they all pretty much work the .... Connect LED from pin 11 through a resistor to ground
Dec 12, 2007 ... Here's a simple problem: “How do you make an LED turn on when it gets ... sometimes called a photocell or LDR, for “light-dependent resistor.
Shining an LED on the sensor can drop the resistance to near-zero, but usually ... By combining the photocell with a static resistor to create a voltage divider, you ...
The LED comes on, but the Photo Cell does nothing to effect it. I have tried 2 different photocells that i got from All Electronics (smaller ...
