The OSEPP IR Proximity Sensor Module measures distances. It utilizes the Sharp GP2Y0D805Z0F measuring sensor unit which is composed of an integrated combination of photo diode, infrared emitting diode and a signal processor. The digital value from the proximity sensor is read out on the I²C bus.
The module uses the I²C interface for data communication. The I²C lines are packaged with the power and ground lines into a modular connector, which allows easy plug and play operation. There are two connectors on the module to enable daisy chaining of multiple I²C devices together. Supports I²C interfacing with 4 programmable 7-bit address (0x20, 0x22, 0x24, 0x26) to allow up to 4 OSEPP IR Proximity Sensor module to exist on the same I²C bus.
This sensor module is ideal for designs that need to detect objects within a certain range or designs that need to avoid obstacles. It can also be used as a touchless switch.
- 100% Arduino compatible.
- Compatible with the OSEPP I²C Expansion Shield.
- Detection range of 0.5 to 5cm.
- Provides 0.1” breakout points for power and I²C interface pins access.
- Provides pass-through connector to support daisy chaining of multiple sensors from the OSEPP Sensor Module family.
