  • Alright i am making a simple pinball machine….. My question is, can i use one of these to detect the ball falling into the retry position(past the flippers, end of game). Now let me set the context, I read on here that you can separate the emitter and the Photo-transistor , and i got to thinking why would you do that,is that so you can set them up directly across from each other? Think garage door sensor. they will be only inches apart. Now i am asking this because from what i have found it really won’t detect a shinny metal ball zipping past it and not many detectors will. Also i’m a mechy, and this is awesome. :) thanks!
