Seeedstudio Infrared Proximity Sensor 80CM Grove Interface for Arduino DIY Projects
Description: The 80cm infrared proximity sensor is a general purpose yype distance measuring sensor. This sensor boasts a small package and very low current consumption, takes a continuous distance reading and returns a corresponding analog voltage with a range of 10cm to 80cm. It also can be used in TVs, personal computers, cars and so on.
Note: This sensor is quite small and use a tiny connector called the Japan solderless terminal connector. These connectors have three wires: Ground, vcc, and the output signal. Because this sensor fire continuously and do not need any clock to initiate a reading cycle, it is easy to interface with any microcontroller. For the Arduino and Seeeduino, we prepared a 4-pin to 3-pin wire to convert the 3-pin connecter on the sensor to 4-pin connecter on the Grove base shield, to compatible with the Seeeduino Grove interface.
