Including €0.01 for ecotax
GP2Y0A51SK0F infrared sensor: a great intermediate choice
This analogue distance sensor offers 3 tangible benefits to the designers of projects requiring short distance measurements:
- It’s more accurate and efficient than many infrared sensors;
- It’s much more economical than sonar rangefinders;
- It’s compatible with most microcontrollers.
The GP2Y0A51SK0F sensor features a detection range of 2to 15 cm and can be connected to an analogue-to-digital converter, or to a comparator for threshold detection.
How do you connect your analogue distance sensor?
This sensor uses a 1.5 mm-pitch 3-pin JST ZH connector that works with a connection cable (not included), or you can solder three wires to the sensor where the connector pins are mounted, in the following order:
- Red cable to the POWER pin
- Black cable to the GND pin
- White cable to the SIGNAL pin
