This is a distance measuring sensor, composed of an integrated combination of PSD(position sensitive detector), IRED(infrared emitting diode) and signal processing circuit. The variety of the reflectivity of the object, the environmental temperature and the operation duration are not influenced easily to the distance detection because of adoption the triangulation method. This device outputs the voltage corresponding to the detection distance. So this sensor can also be used as a proximity sensor. Ā Features Distance measuring range: 20 to 150cm Analog output type Package size: 29.5 x 13 x 21.6mm Consumption current: Typ.33mA Supply voltage: 4.5 to 5.5V Ā Applications Touch-less switch(Sanitary equipment, Control of illumination, etc.) Sensor for energy saving(ATM, Copier, Vending machine, Laptop computer, LCD monitor) Amusement equipment(Robot, Arcade game machine) Ā Datasheet download
