The Hewlett-Packard HEDS-1000 is a high resolution optical reflective sensor designed for various functions such as bar code scanning and edge detection. The HEDS-1000 contains a 700nm GaAsP point source and a transistor-amplified photodiode detector, mounted under a translucent red bifurcated aspheric lens. The lens images the active areas of the emitter and detector to a 0.19mm spot located 4.27mm in front of the package window.

The HBCS-1100 is identical to the HEDS-1000, but has a higher brightness LED point source, which results in a higher detector photocurrent and improves the reflected photocurrent to internal stray photocurrent ratio.
