Re: Backlight Blinders

Seems somewhat unusual to have a distant so close to the box working it that a back light would be useful, normally a distant would have an electrical arm and light repeater.

At MERG we have a design for a sensor using Light dependent resistors that would work well in this application, one board will do 3 detectors, (one...
