Infrared object detection module


This module makes it possible to register reflection at a fixed distance. The distance can be set by bending the LEDs more towards each other or apart. In addition, the sensitivity can be set using the potentiometer at which the output becomes high.

This module works on both 3.3 and 5V and is very suitable for following a line with a robot, for example.

Customer questions

Q The Netherlands AmbiorsixWe want to detect objects with a Micro:bit for a school project. Here are 2 questions: - Micro:bit works standard with analog signal on pins 0-1-2. On the TCRT5000 Infrared line detection module that we use others you could choose, not here. Is this signal analog or digital? - We are making a goose board and the sensor must therefore be in the board and 'look' upwards. The plate is about 1 cm thick, but there is still some plate underneath. Will it be possible to install these sensors? If any of these questions prevent us from using this module, do you have an option other than the TCRT5000 Infrared Line Detection Module which is out of stock?

Customer Reviews

The Netherlands
I used the infrared detection module for my line following robot and am quite impressed! Adjusting the LEDs and the sensitivity potentiometer was a bit of a puzzle at first, but once set it worked like a charm. The fact that it can operate on both 3.3V and 5V is super handy, so it fits almost anywhere. A small downside is that the description could be a bit clearer, but with some experimenting you will figure it out.
