Hello guys I builded a IR circuit to increase my IR range using the following IR LED Diode ->
this is the schematic -> https://cdn.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Kits/PowerIR-v11.pdf I have replaced the resistor at the collector with 39 Ohm 1W resistor.
Using the following calculations:
Input voltage: 5V Diode forward voltage: 1.33V Diode forward current: 100mA
and I calculated 39 Ohm 1W.
I have increased the range for sure but can I fine tune it more ?
And also when I send codes and they are received from the TSOP I am sending irsend.sendNEC(0x54454c45, 32);
But the TSOP is receiving different hex codes when decoded like:
E0E0E01F CBDD7D2B E0E0E01F E0E0E01F 37BF2E43 776CD98D 776CD98D 22AE7A2A 56D6B339 9E45C177 776CD98D 22AE7A28 4AB0F7B6 FEAC02E4 22AE7A29 41A542AB 776CD98D 24AE7D4F
Is there a way to make the code consistent and the same, maybe sending raw data ?
Appreciating all the answers!
