QTR-MD-01RC Reflectance Sensor: 1-Channel, 7.5mm Wide, RC Output


The QTR-MD-01RC Reflectance Sensor is a compact, single-channel device with a width of 7.5mm. It boasts an RC output and is designed for precise detection of changes in reflectance, making it ideal for tasks such as line detection. With a maximum current of 30mA for the LED and 32mA for the board, it operates efficiently within a voltage range of 2.9V to 5.5V. The sensor's optimal range is 5mm, but it can generally detect high-reflectance objects up to approximately 30mm.

The QTR-MD-01RC Reflectance Sensor is equipped with an IR LED/phototransistor pair, which is excellent for identifying subtle changes in reflectance. This feature is particularly useful in robotics and automation, where precise line detection is required. Its dimmable brightness control is independent of the supply voltage, providing you with flexibility and control over your projects.

One of the main benefits of the QTR-MD-01RC Reflectance Sensor is its compact size. Measuring just 7.5mm by 20.0mm, it can easily fit into a variety of designs and configurations. Despite its small size, it doesn't compromise on performance. The closer the object, the higher the contrast between light and dark readings, allowing for precise detection and measurement.

Unique to this model is its traditional-style QTR sensor, which does not feature lenses. This design choice enhances the sensor's robustness and durability while maintaining its high level of performance. With the QTR-MD-01RC Reflectance Sensor, you can expect reliable and accurate readings, making it a valuable addition to your toolkit.
