I have ordered one of this proximity sensor. In my application, I do not really need a continuous reading of the distance. Once every 10seconds is really enough. I was thinking using the same kind of code that the one of the tutorial to blink a LED without a delay, but I was wondering what is the state of the sensor while I am not doing a readAnalog call? Is the sensor off, or does it continue its reading?
I also have a wiring question. Is the good way to use this sensor is to put a 4.7uF capacitor between IOLine and Ground?
