The Sharp infrared distance sensor
The Sharp GP2Y0A21YK0F infrared distance measuring sensor uses a beam of infrared light to reflect off an object to measure its distance. Because it uses triangulation of the beam of light to calculate the distance, it is able to provide consistent and reliable readings which are less sensitive to temperature variation or the object’s reflectivity.
This IR distance sensor is a standard widely used in mobile robotics. It will fit easily on all your robots.
Operation of the Sharp infrared distance sensor
The sensor outputs an analog voltage corresponding to the distance of the object, and can easily be read using an inexpensive analog to digital converter (ADC) chip.
Technical specification of the Sharp infrared distance sensor
The technical specifications of the Sharp infrared distance sensor are as follows:
- Distance measurement range: 10 to 80 cm (3.9 to 31.5 inches)
- Analog output voltage corresponds to distance
- Operates on 5 V supply
- Convenient 3-pin interface
- Two mounting holes spaced 1.46 inches (37 mm) apart
The Sharp infrared distance sensor can be attached on your robots using the specific fixation kit for the Sharp sensor (not included).
This infrared sensor is ROHS compliant.
