The IR Distance Click Board™ represents a sensor that incorporates a GP2Y0A60SZ0F distance measuring sensor unit. The sensor module is composed of an integrated PSD (position sensitive detector), an infrared LED and a signal processing circuit, measuring between 10 and 150 cm. The sensor remains uninfluenced by the reflectivity of the object such as environmental temperature and the operating duration. IR Distance Click Board™ outputs an analogue voltage corresponding to the distance of the object (through the MikroBUS AN pin). Since this device outputs the voltage corresponding to the detection distance, it can also be used as a proximity sensor. IR Distance Click Board™ use a 3.3V or a 5V power supply.
With these features, the IR Distance Click Board™ can be used in applications like touch-less switches, various energy-saving devices, robots, and many more.
