Selco Products Co. has expanded its product range of thermal and electronic control products with the introduction of the Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) photocell series that offer high sensitivity and high stability. Featuring a spectral response similar to the human eye, the single and dual CdS light-dependent resistors are suitable for sensor applications such as light camera exposure, brightness controls, shutter controls, and light dimmers.

The product is designed to sense light in the spectral range from 515nm to 730nm and have a peak wavelength of 515nm. Performance characteristics include a wide range of resistivity values ranging from 3,000 ohms to 240 ohms at 10lux, 2856K, and an operating temperature range of -30C to 75C.

Other features include glass window and plastic coating construction, and a manufacturing process that incorporates a sintered film fabrication process to provide high sensitivity areas. With a soldering temperature of 260C for 5s, the 9P, 8P, 7P, and 5P series are available for immediate delivery, and are priced from 10 cents to 33 cents in production quantities.
