The 80cm Infrared Proximity Sensor is a General Purpose Type Distance Measuring Sensors, this sensor takes a continuous distance reading and returns a corresponding analog voltage with a range of 10cm (4") to 80cm (30"). Can be used in TVs,Personal computers, Cars and so on.
- Grove interface compatible
- Wide supply voltage range: 2.5V–7V
This sensor is quite small and use a tiny connector called the Japan Solderless Terminal (JST) connector. These connectors have three wires: ground, vcc, and the output.
Because the sensor fire continuously and don't need any clocking to initiate a reading, it is easy to interface with any microcontroller. The included cable converts the 3-wire interface to 4-wire compatible with the twig interface of Grove.
