Tech Note 1109 Detail

CI-6604 High-Sensitivity Light Sensor Drift

Affected Products:

CI-6604 High-Sensitivity Light Sensor

Problem/Symptom:
CI-6604 High-Sensitivity Light Sensor exhibits drift at 100X gain.

PASCO Solution:

The CI-6604 Light Sensor has a very high amplification and therefore must be properly grounded in order for the value not to noticeably drift at high gains. Mount the sensor to a grounded metal surface with a metallic ME-8965 Sensor Mounting Rod or similar conductive connector.
