Best IR receiver sensor?

Hi,

What is the best IR receiver sensor out there? Dont need to be a highly premium price but I need a good one with a stable signal and a good distance. Cheap sensors need the remote vear near and in line with sensor...

So many TSOPs... What is the best from that list?
Use will be the most geral as possible and environment is unknown

The datasheets will tell you.
I think that devices with the same opening angle won't be that different.
Seems the list shows devices with different center frequencies, and maybe opening angles.
AFAIK 36.7Khz and 38Khz are common frequencies in consumer electronics.
You might want to choose a different frequency (or not).
Transmitter and receiver frequency have to match for a good range.
~7meters is the practical limit with a single IR LED. You can push that with more IR LEDs.
I once bridged 60meters with 4 IR leds.
Multiple receivers could be paralleled and angled for a wider field of view.

I am personally using tsop4838, which is very affordable and using the very common 38khz frequency, with arduino and raspberry pi and I find the 4838 highly sensitive and responsive even over long distances >5m.

Yes but they are so many that will take days to analise and compare all datasheets, so maybe someone with experience in this sensores can advice one better than i can pick one.
Good tips, thanks for that. I will not able to use bridges or repeaters in my project, still i will keep that for future projects.

thanks

thanks i wil check that one and compare.

Looks like there are only three types on that list.

17xx
18xx
48xx

Last two digits is the frequency.

I think I would also pick the 48xx

Nice! then i would go for the 4838, i got a 38KHz remote
Thanks for your help +rep
