Distance sensors – one of the most important modules in robotics
Distance sensors allow you to perform automated activities that require ongoing estimation of the distance between individual objects. This is one of those modules without which it is difficult to imagine advanced robotics - also the common, commercial one. The use of distance sensors also includes all construction and renovation works. It is extremely important that the distances are measured well and precisely.
This group of products includes laser meters and modern sensors using infrared waves, as well as other beams. In the Botland store you can buy distance sensors and all the accessories needed for them at a good price. These are the highest quality products from certified producers.
Distance sensors’ accessories – cables & adapters
Distance sensors are commonly used in various electronics. Therefore, in most cases it is necessary to mount the sensor at a distance from the control unit, such as a microcontroller, computer or standalone controller. The control unit is responsible for reading and processing the signals from the sensor. The processed data will be used as input data to the control algorithm. It is noticeable, however, that the operation requires special cables. That is why we offer you in this category of the Botland store dedicated accessories for distance sensors in the form of ready-made cables.
This is where you will find the best cables with a JST 3x1 connector. These cables are terminated with male, female or free wires (for mounting any other socket / plug or for direct soldering). JST connectors have a 2 mm pitch and are compatible with Sharp GP2Y0A51 distance sensors.
Most of the programmable electronics kits (Arduino, Raspberry Pi) use connectors with a 2.54 mm pitch. In order to save you time to adapt the cables to standard connectors, we offer a selection of convenient adapters with JST connectors that will seamlessly connect the selected electronic module with sensors.
Accessories you need – handles, stands and mounting elements
Stands and holders, as well as various fixing accessories, are very important elements in electronic systems. The reason is pretty simple – without them we would not be able to provide our structures with stability they clearly need. When it comes to distance measurements, it is of great importance. Such seemingly simple products as handles, stands and various attachments for electronics are extremely important because they ensure measurement accuracy and repeatability. Thanks to them, we can be sure that the measurements made, e.g. with the use of laser measuring sensors, will be reliable.
We know it very well in Botland, which is why in this category we also present various types of physical accessories such as sensor stands and laser mounts. Choose now reliable and proven accessories for distance sensors so that you can use them comfortably, safely and effectively.
