Indeed, each photocell has its very specific mission. One is the transmitter cell and the other is the receiver cell. The emitting cell of the photocell emits a beam of light at a specific wavelength. This light beam is directed towards the receiving cell which is sensitive to the same wavelength. When light reaches the receiving cell, it is converted into an electrical signal which is then processed by an electronic circuit. If the light is interrupted, the electrical signal diminishes or stops altogether, indicating the presence of an object or person blocking the light beam. In the case where light is present, the electrical signal is maintained at a certain level, thus indicating the absence of obstacle.
