IR obstacle sensor is a small box with an infrared sensor in it. It can be used for contactless detection of (passing) objects. The housing (dimensions 45x22.5x15mm) is equipped with various mounting grooves for the fischertechnik system.
There are two models of this sensor. The version with a 3-pin Dupont plug connection works on 5 volts. The version with fischertechnik plug connections works on 9 volts. The (green) LED light of the sensor board is visible through the small diffuser. This lights up upon detection, the output then becomes active (5 or 9 volts for direct connection to microcontrollers, etc.). The detection distance can be adjusted through the lid with a small screwdriver.
The sensor stone is connected with a 3-pin Dupont plug. Consult the connection and wiring instructions, because on this connector the middle pin is the signal output, making it easy to accidentally connect the supply voltage the wrong way round!
Sensor housing with multiple touch sensors. There are models with two or four sensors, and the sensors can also differ. There is a 'closed' version so that the (red) indicator light is visible through a diffuser, and an 'open' version where the entire contact area lights up. This can be equipped with sensor surfaces that light up in different colors (red, green, blue, yellow or 'rainbow').
In addition, there are versions with fischertechnik connections and a supply voltage and output level of 9 volts, and versions that can be connected with three-pole Dupont cables.
The module is available in versions that are respectively Pass 7.5 or 9 volts to the metal connection strips for powering other 'Silberlingen' and the additional connection options on the front of the module.
