Looking for a photoresistor component in Multisim

I can't find a photoresistor component in Multisim. Does anyone know any database for photoresistor components? Thanks in advance!

Hello  annebec02,


NI Multisim doesn't simulate light. This is the reason that there are no Light Dependent Resistors (LDR) in Multisim. Instead of a Photoresistor, you can use a Voltage Controlled Resistor.


Or if you want to draw a Photoresistor for your scheme, you can use Component Wizard to do it. The link below might help you.

Фотодиоды и фоторезисторы в программе всё равно управляются напряжением, так что такая замена весьма эффективна и универсальна, а "ухудшить" свойства под реальный компонент всегда можно
