Osepp IR Proximity Sensor
By Osepp (PROX-01)
MCM Part #83-15275
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.
