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

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 ?

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.
