The sensor can detect objects at a distance of from 4 to 30 cm. The output is the analog signal whose value depends on the distance between the detected object and the sensor. The closer object is, the voltage at the output is higher.

Examples of application
These sensors are eagerly used by designers of mobile robots, e.g. in building fighting robots to recognize the enemy, or chassis platforms, where it is used for obstacle detection.
The product is compatible with Arduino
The sensor's output should be connected to any analog output, measurement is done using the functionanalogRead(sensorPin);. Example of project with code, can be found onthe bildr websiteand inour guide.
The other optical distance sensors
The sensor has three leads: power - Vcc (voltage from 4.5 to 5.5 V), weight - GND and analog output signal Vo, the value of which depends on the distance between the sensor and the detected object, this dependence is presented onthe chart. The following figure shows the distribution of the leads.
