PIR Infrared Motion Sensor (HC-SR501) (pir sensor big)
Description:

PIR sensors, often referred to as, "Passive Infrared" or "IR motion"  sensors, enable you to sense motion. Everything emits a small amount of  infrared radiation (IR), and the hotter something is, the more radiation  it emits. PIR sensors are able to detect a change in average IR levels  of their detection zone (e.g. when a human enters a room, that room will  increase in temperature slightly) and hence sense motion. 

This  one's great, as it can be powered  via the Raspberry Pi's 5V output, and  be read directly from the Raspberry Pi's GPIO input (as the sensor has a  digital 3.3V output!)

This PIR includes an adjustable delay  before firing (approx 0.5 - 200 seconds), has adjustable sensitivity and  two M2 mounting holes! It runs on 4.5V-20V power (or 3V by bypassing  the regulator with a bit of soldering) and has a digital signal output   (3.3V) high, 0V low. Its sensing range is up to 7 meters in a 100  degree cone.

Specifications:

  • Input Voltage: 4.5V - 20V
  • Current Draw: <50µA
  • Digital Output: 3.3V (High)
  • Digital Output: 0V (Low)
  • Working Temperature: -15°C to 70°C
  • Delay Time: 0.5 - 200 Seconds
  • Sensing Angle: 100° Cone
  • Range 5m - 7m

 

Dimensions:

  • Sensor Lens Diameter: 23mm
  • Length: 24.03mm
  • Width: 32.34mm
  • Height (with lens): 24.66mm

GY-31 TCS230 colour recognition sensor module (colour recognition sensor)
Description:

The TCS230 color detector measures three primary colors Red, Green and Blue and also has a separate white light detector. Since any color can be created from different levels of these primary colors, you can find out the color composition of a light source.

The four LEDs on the breakout board are there to illuminate the subject with an even light source, making measurement more reliable.

You can use the TCS230 where you need to take action based on the color of an object. The device does react to infrared so may need an infrared filter or use the device in an enclosed space.

Features:

Chip: TCS230
Input voltage: DC 3V-5V
Output frequency voltage: 0 ~ 5V
Use bright white LED lights
Can be connected directly with Microcontroller
Static detection of the measured object color
Best detection distance: 10mm

Maker Reflect: Simplifying IR Reflectance Sensor for Beginner (maker reflect)
Description

Maker Reflect is a tiny reflectance sensor that consists of an infrared (IR) LED that transmits IR light onto a surface and a phototransistor measures how much light is reflected back. The output is in analog voltage - The more IR light is sensed by the phototransistor, the lower the voltage.



Typically this sensor is used in line following robot as the white surfaces reflect more IR than black surfaces. However, it is not limited to line follower, there are much more application which can utilize the Maker Reflect. Eg.: Edge/Border sensor in Sumo robot, wall sensor in maze solving robot, short-distance object detector (presence sensor), a sensor for rotary wheel encoder...etc.



Measuring only (L)18.1mm x (W)8.4mm x (H)4.2mm (Exclude the header pin), this tiny sensor can be easily fitted in the tightest space available on your robot. We purposely designed the sensor so that the mounting hole is at the center so that the sensor can be at the front-most position. This is especially important in the Sumo robot.

Features:

  • Operating Voltage: 3.3V and 5V Compatible
  • Sensing Distance (Height): 1mm to 40mm (Vcc = 5V, Black line on a white surface)
  • Output: Analog Voltage (White surface = lower voltage)

Example Application: Line Following Robot, Sumo Robot, Wall Following Robot, Short Distance Object Sensing, Sensor for Printed Rotary Wheel Encoder.
