SHARP sharp 2Y0A02 - connection to the Arduino UNO

Hello all,
I may have a simple beginner's question here.
I just got an Arduino Uno and a Sharp 2Y0A02 sensor.
The sensor wires are not as I was expected: they are connected to the sensor with a JST, and at the other end, they are stuck together again inside a little black component, looking like a 3-female connector (?).
How do I connect this to the Uno ? Should I strip the cables and plug them separately?
Thanks a lot in advance,

Eric

Hi there. I signed up for your question actually :smiley: You can see at the link, your sensor's datasheet "http://www.acroname.com/products/Sharp_GP2Y0A02YK0F_Datasheet.pdf"

As you put it in front of you, when cables out side is towarding to you, from left to right

first one : output

second one : ground

third one : supply voltage

Then you can follow the cables as told and use male jumpers or cables to connect your arduino.

Male jumpers like

Have a good day :smiley:

Pic below shows how I do that, exactly as Aerospacer suggests. Female 3-way on the right, and 3 separate male jumpers on the left.
