Product Description: 3 Channel Wide Angle Distance Sensor - OPT3101 - Pololu 3412
Wideangledistance sensormanufactured by Pololu, It is equipped withOPT3101chip from Texas Instruments. Detects thepresence of objectswithin a radius ofup to 1 mand measures their distance in three zones TX0, TX1 and TX2. The measurement obtained from the three zones provides anFOV of approximately 180°. The sensor uses theI2Cbus to communicate with othermodules. The leads are solder fields wheregoldpinconnectors should be soldered. The module operates with a voltage rangefrom 2.5V to 5.5V.
Product is compatible with Arduino
. Detailed user's guide andlibraryfor Arduino environment are available to download on GitHub onmanufacturer's website.
Distance measurement in three zones
Sensor performs measurement inthree channelsTX0, TX1 and TX2. Their combination allows detection with a viewing angle ofapproximately 180°. In favourable conditions, it can detect objectsup toa radius of1 m. The module emitsinfrared lightthanks to built-in LEDs. The returned value is thetime delay of the reflected signal, based on which the distance of the detected object is calculated.
In our shop you can also find otherdistance sensors. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the offer.
