  • Corresponding analog voltage range from 3V when an object is 10cm (4") away and 0.4V when the object is 80cm (30") away. 
  • Grove interface compatible
  • Wide supply voltage range: 2.5V-7V
  • Description

    The 80cm Infrared Proximity Sensor is a General Purpose Type Distance Measuring Sensor based on Sharp GP2Y0A21YK, which is a wide-angle distance measuring sensor.

    This proximity sensor takes a continuous distance reading and returns a corresponding analog voltage with a range of 10cm (4") to 80cm (30").

    You can apply it to TVs, personal computers, cars and so on. This sensor is quite small and uses a tiny connector called the Japan Solderless Terminal (JST) connector.

    These connectors have three wires: Ground, VCC, and Output. Because the sensor fire continuously and don't need any clock to initiate a reading, it is easy to interface with any microcontroller.

    for the Seeeduino 4.2, the wire converts the 3-wire to 4-wire so that it can bee compatible with the twig interface of Grove.
