I have this sensor button
I am trying to use in a circuit to replace this Carling Momentary SPST footswitch
The only info i have on the button is in that tiny sheet i pasted - I believe it's a touchless proximity light sensor (based on where the data sheets says "Principle: Light Reflection"
When I hook it up to 12v i can here the button clicking when i wave over it,
I can get the RX light to indicate receipt on the Arduino. BUT doing what needs to be done to get this button to do the work of the former foot switch (Carling is beyond me- other buttons I have tried i believe had enough were in the milliamp range to do the job (200ma) this one only 15ma
apologies if this is all over the map
i'm brand new to this
