Application examples

  1. Measurement of proximity of objects like hands or walls
  2. Great for making that fake Theremin.
  3. Update your keyboard with this handy gadget.
  4. Combine with a TapTiled floor, some MoveOn and/or Advance-645 and/or ReachFar sensors and make sure every move of your visitor has an effect. The Flash + SeeLaser combo adds a touch of diamond robbery feeling.
  5. Pamper your robot or toy car and combine with GForce3D-6, and Orient to detect approaches to and/or impacts with walls and what have you.
  6. Create a fancy control panel by combining Push sensors (Push, Push2D), Reach sensors (Reach, ReachClose, ReachOn), Slide sensors (Slide-50, Slide, Slide-170, SlideLong, Slide-500, SlideRound, SlideWide), Touch sensors (Touch, TouchMicro-3, TouchMicro-5 TouchMicro-10, TouchMini, TouchMiniOn, TouchStrip) and Turn sensors (Turn, Turn&Spin) to name a few.

Application notes
  1. Due to the modulation of the infra-red light that is used to detect a reflecting object the sensor is insensitive to ambient light variations.
  2. Glass or other transparent surfaces can be placed in front of the sensor but for best results place the sensor as close as possible to the surface and make sure the sensor emits/receives light perpendicular to the surface to avoid reflections that distort the sensor output.
  3. Warning ! Make sure the sensor is plugged into the Digitizer with the red wire connected to power.
