The Microduino IR LED can emit infrared signals just like a remote control. Couple this with an infrared receiver and you can control projects from a distance. The maximum transmission distance for the emitter is 10 meters.
- Electrical Specifications
- Operation Voltage: 3.3V~5V
- This is an Output Device
- Technical Specifications
- Emitting Distance: 10 meters
- Emitting Angle: 25 degrees
- Wavelength: 940nm
- LED: 5mm
- Board: 10mm x 20mm
- Connector: 4-Pin, 1.27mm-pitch
- Connector Interface
- Pins: D6 (on Hub), VCC (power), GND (ground) and NC (Not Connected)
- NOTE: To emit at the proper frequency for remote control (38KHz), the sensor must be connected to pin D6 on the Sensor Hub
Setup 1：Connect the IR transmitter's interface with the Hub's D6 digital port.
- Setup 2：Connect the core, Hub and IR transmitter to a computer with a USB cable.
- Open " IRsendDemo " program in the libraries.
- include <IRremote.h> - Imports the IRremote library and allows you to use all functions.
- IRsend irsend; - Declares an object for the infrared transmitter to use IR functions.
- irsend.sendSony(0xa90, 12); - Sends an infrared code using a Sony remote protocol.
- Once you open the Serial Monitor, you can input any values into the console. The LED on the transmitter will blink once the infrared signal has been sent.
