 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

I have started today with a N-240 Pengcheng kit with an Arduino UNO. There is no description of the sensors but with the inscriptions I've identified all sensors but one. It is a black long dome shaped sensor. Does anyone have an idea what this sensor does? (see photo)

thnx in advance

Marc

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

It looks a bit like a LED?
maybe a light sensitive sensor?
does the resistance change when light is on it?

My guess is an IR receiver or transmitter led.
If it is a IR receiver, it can be used as a flame detector.

Is this the kit with breadboard and the breadboard shield and with the blue USB cable and the remote control ?

No, that is not the kit. This is the one: http://www.ownta.com/new-pengcheng-n-240-utility-component-storage-box-23.8x16.8x6.2cm.html

But that is only the storage box, with nothing inside ... ?

I think you have to use it without an english description. There is almost no information about it.
If you want a cheap sensor, you can find it on Ebay.
