Title: Can I use IR Sensor for POV?
Post by: glenn_boy13 on Feb 08, 2014, 05:46 pm
Hello. I have here a hall effect sensors, but I don't want to use them for my POV project, since I can barely make them work. Sometimes they function normally, sometimes not. errrr.
I'm thinking to use these IR sensor. I have here one . (In one package, it has 4 pins, a dark led and a white one). I've been searching on how to use it in arduino, but the codes consist of many lines. I just want to use it as a reference point like reed switch and hall effect in many POV projects.

Similar to this one ?
Add a resistor from Emitter (and analog input)  to GND, Collector to 5V,
Digital ouput via 220 Ohm to led anode. kathode to GND
