Osepp IR Proximity Sensor
By Osepp (PROX-01)
The OSEPP IR Proximity Sensor Module measures distances. It utilizes the Sharp GP2Y0D805Z0F measuring sensor unit which is composed of an integrated combination of photo diode, infrared emitting diode and a signal processor. The digital value from the proximity sensor is read out on the I²C bus.
The module uses the I²C interface for data communication. The I²C lines are packaged with the power and ground lines into a modular connector, which allows easy plug and play operation. There are two connectors on the module to enable daisy chaining of multiple I²C devices together.
This sensor module is ideal for designs that need to detect objects within a certain range or designs that need to avoid obstacles. It can also be used as a touchless switch.
