TCRT5000 BASED IR LINE FOLLOWING SENSOR
This IR reflective sensor utilizes a TCRT5000 to detect color and distance. It emits IR rays and then detects if it receives the reflection.
This sensor is often used in line following robots, auto data logging on utility meters, because this module can sense white or black surface
The measuring distance range is from 1mm to 8mm . There is also an on-
The infrared diode emits the infrared ray continuously when connected to power
When the emitted infrared light has not been reflected or the strength is not big enough, it will be in the off state, at this time, D0 output logic is LOW and the signal indicates LED off.
Supply Voltage: 3.3V~5V
Detection distance: 1mm -
Digital Outputs HIGH when an object is detected
Usually used for line following robot
