    Pros:
    Might be very nice for a home project with your arduino board. The quality is really nice, for the price I couldn't imagine such a nice product. If you need it, buy it.
    Cons:
    Couldn't find many usefulness, maybe when I have many projects I can tell, but till now I think it is not that useful. But it w...

    Good sensor

    posted by MatiasSilv on 02/14/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This module is really easy to use, it is well made and the board is tiny enough to use it in a lot of applications. Range voltage of 3 to 6v allows this module to be connected in a wide range of projects. It has an enable input that can be controlled by a u...
    Cons:
    The range is really poor, no more than 20 cm, even replacing the original adjusting potentiometers by others. The cost can be l...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    -Pequeño modulo sensor infrarojo. -Es de salida digital, recomendado usar con resistor pull-up -Buen precion 'desde arduino, es un juego de niños manejarlo
    Cons:
    -El unico detalle es la distancia de sensado, aprox 20 cm max. el potenciometro adjunto no regula demasiado.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    VERY cheap easy to mount very clean pcb layout IR led shielded on the sides to avoid interference enable option and enable jumper very good to interface with a micro controller Looks just like the image advertised. Very small and compact. Easy to use, hea...
    Cons:
    Pot variations are not precise at all, they either sens or they either cut off to no range. The sensing range is poor, only abo...
