Great for low precision – IR Infrared Sensor Switch Module Reviews

posted by Bencassar on 11/24/2012 Certified Owner

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, header pins just slide into breadboard.
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 about 15cm
Other:
Good for a cheap low precision device
Bottomline:
I bought it for a small project and it fits me well, it has a very low power consumption, it is easy to integrate in a circuit. It is a very good device for its price.
