Topic: Connecting IR Sensors to Arduino Uno SMD (Read 4390 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi, I am new to Arduino and would appreciate some help connecting sensors to the board.
Currently I have two sensors I need to connect: An Infrared Proximity Sensor - Sharp GP2D120XJOOF and an Infrared Proximity Sensor Long Range - Sharp GP2Y0A02YK0F.
I am unsure what pins I need to connect these sensors to.
Thanks in advance, your help is very much appreciated.

Have you read the datasheets ?

They both need 5V power, and both have an analog output. Connect the analog output to an analog input of the Arduino.

Look at the picture with the wires. White is analog output: http://www.robotgear.com.au/Product.aspx/Details/272
The other one is the same: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-your-first-robot/step4/Buy-the-materials-A-sensor-so-we-can-see-erh-/


Thanks for your help. I will give it another shot.


Hey .. i am new to arduino and i am using a arduino UNO board for interfacing an infrared transceiver. Vishay TFBS4711

I need to know how do i connect the pins to my UNO  for proximity detection ...i.e to analog input of arduino because this one has 6 pins.
txd .... ?
Rxd.... ?
SD...... ?
Ired anode ...?

Please help . Thanks in advance ..
