Sharp IR Sensor GP2Y0A51SK0F

GP2Y0A51SK0F 2-15cm Infrared distance sensor GP2Y0A51SK0F Distance Measuring Sensor with cable

Product Description:
GP2Y0A41SK0F is a distance measuring sensor unit, composed of an integrated combination of PSD (position sensitive detector), IRED (infrared emitting diode) and signal processing circuit.
The variety of the reflectivity of the object, the environmental temperature and the operating duration are not influenced easily to the distance detection because of adopting the triangulation method.
This device outputs the voltage corresponding to the detection distance. So this sensor can also be used as a proximity sensor.

Operating voltage: 4.5 V to 5.5 V
Average current consumption: 12 mA (note: this sensor draws current in large, short bursts, and the manufacturer recommends putting a 10 µF capacitor or larger across power and ground close to the sensor to stabilize the power supply line)
Distance measuring range: 2 cm to 15 cm (0.8″ to 6″)
Output type: analog voltage
Output voltage differential over distance range: 1.65 V (typical)
Update period: 16.5 ± 4 ms
Size: 27 mm × 13.2 mm × 14.2 mm (1.06″ × 0.52″ × 0.56″)
Weight: 2.7 g (0.10 oz)
