IR Obstacle Line Proximity Fire Color Sensor This is a multipurpose infrared sensor which can be used for obstacle sensing, color detection(between basic contrasting colors), fire detection, line sensing, etc and also as an encoder sensor. The sensor provides a digital output. The sensor outputs a logic one(+5V) at the digital output when an object is placed in front of the sensor and a logic zero(0v), when there is no object in front of the sensor. An on board LED is used to indicate the presence of an object. This digital output can be directly connected to an Arduino, Raspberry Pi, AVR, PIC, 8051 or any other micro controller to read the sensor output. IR sensors are highly susceptible to ambient light and the IR sensor on this sensor is suitably covered to reduce effect of ambient light on the sensor. The sensor has a maximum range of around 15-20 cms indoors(under ideal conditions it can be upto 30-50 cms) and around 1-5 cms outdoors. For maximum, range the onboard potentiometer should be used to calibrate the sensor. To set the potentiometer, use a screw driver and turn the potentiometer till the output LED just turns off.
