IR receiver (sensor)

Regular price $3.00 Sale

This IR receiver receives an infrared sensor from the IR Transmitter 

The IR Receiver contains a semiconductor device, which can turn the infrared light signal into electrical signal. Its core part is a PN junction with special material. Compared with the ordinary diode, it adopts great change in structure with a larger infrared receiving area, which makes the current increase accordingly.

*Compatible with the DIY and mCookie series.

Introduction of Sensor Pins

IR Receiver
General Pin Out Sensor / Trinket's Pin Out
PIN3 (SIGNAL-A) Digital Input
PIN4 (SIGNAL-B) Not Connected
  • General Pin Out is the standard pin out of a Sensor / Trinket connector.
  • Sensor / Trinket's Pin Out is this specific Sensor / Trinket's wiring in relation to the General Pin Out.
  • SIGNAL-A / SIGNAL-B are signals that could be digital input, digital output, analog input or analog output. Or special signals such as serial communication (SoftwareSerial, IIC (I2C), etc) or other special signals.
  • Not Connected refers to the Pin not being used for this particular Sensor / Trinket.
