Use IR Sensor (SN-IRS-01) to send different signals

Postby jy734 » Sun Jul 08, 2018 11:59 pm

hello everyone, i am actually wondering if i can actually use the IR sensor set (SN-IRS-01) as a distance measurement tool as well as a signal transmitter and a signal receiver at the same time? i am trying to use it to establish connection between nearby same model IR sensor sets. Is that possible? the signal i am trying to transmit could be a unique number. is that possible?

Hi jy734,

Light from SN-IRS-01 is not far enough to be used for distance measurement. Unless your measurement is around 1-5 cm. I never try this sensor as unique signal transmitter and receiver, so no comment. However since this sensor is cheap, why not you try it? :)
