    Pros: The product is correct, is very simple to use. And is very CHEAP

    Cons: No manual attached, but the signals are indicated over the pcb

    Other: It's perfect for training sensors device. No need breadboards and others device to conect with arduino's kits, you can conect direct to the arduino headers.

    Pros: Might be very nice for a home project with your arduino board. The quality is really nice, for the price I couldn't imagine such a nice product. If you need it, buy it.

    Cons: Couldn't find many usefulness, maybe when I have many projects I can tell, but till now I think it is not that useful. But it was cheap and it's here, if I need I use.

    Other: If you know how to use and for what you should use, purchase it, otherwise, you can purchase it too, it's too cheap!

    posted by MatiasSilv on 19:24:15 G2T 14/02/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This module is really easy to use, it is well made and the board is tiny enough to use it in a lot of applications. Range voltage of 3 to 6v allows this module to be connected in a wide range of projects. It has an enable input that can be controlled by a uC in order to reduce power consumption when it is not being used. The led indicating a detection is really usefull when testing.

    Cons: The range is really poor, no more than 20 cm, even replacing the original adjusting potentiometers by others. The cost can be lower.

    Other: If you have some electronic knowledge maybe you can built your own version with an increased detection range for less money. But if you don't need a higher detection distance and you just want something that works..this is a good choice

  • good value for IR proximity detector

    posted by ScottJ on 23:48:31 G1T 03/01/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: pulses IR LED for best sensitivity to IR detector. Very nice design, simple to use.

    Cons: no documentation. you must experiment to figure out how to use.

    Other: very good value for proximity detection, or sensing IR remote control (but not reading value from IR remote - just that it's on). I would recommend this product.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -Pequeño modulo sensor infrarojo. -Es de salida digital, recomendado usar con resistor pull-up -Buen precion 'desde arduino, es un juego de niños manejarlo

    Cons: -El unico detalle es la distancia de sensado, aprox 20 cm max. el potenciometro adjunto no regula demasiado.

    Other: ...buen sensor para robotica ! pueden verlo en accion en http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI0pETeEZLw&feature=youtu.be un robot movil....pronto tendremos mas.

  • Great for low precision

    posted by Bencassar on 08:03:31 G11T 24/11/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: VERY cheap easy to mount very clean pcb layout IR led shielded on the sides to avoid interference enable option and enable jumper very good to interface with a micro controller Looks just like the image advertised. Very small and compact. Easy to use, header pins just slide into breadboard.

    Cons: Pot variations are not precise at all, they either sens or they either cut off to no range. The sensing range is poor, only about 15cm

    Other: I bought it for a small project and it fits me well, it has a very low power consumption, it is easy to integrate in a circuit. It is a very good device for its price.

    posted by michalwu on 13:57:13 G11T 14/11/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Really small, it will fit into every DIY project. Really good price (don't bother soldering your own, it is better to buy one) Detection LED on board (it will show you when it is working) Range tuning available (two variable resistors on board) Short range (which is a pro for me)

    Cons: No manual attached (you will have to check how it is working for yourself)

    Other: Good for do it yourself projects, small toys, home automation projects, etc.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to use, although no instruction manual, compact and inexpensive. Recommended. Fácil de usar, embora não tenha manual de instrução, compacto e barato. Recomendado.

    Cons: Does not come with instruction manual. But nothing about 2 minutes and a multimeter can not solve. And mention 40cm however, adjusting the pot, I got around 30cm. Não vem com manual de instruções. Porém nada que uns 2 minutos e um multímetro não resolvam. E menciona 40cm porém, ajustando o potenciômetro, consegui em torno de 30cm.

    Other: Inexpensive, compact and easy to use. Barato, compacto e fácil de utilizar.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - potentiometers allow range tuning - very small packaging - hole for bolt - on board LED to show detection ( you can disable this feature using a strap on the board)

    Cons: - need reverse engineering to understand how its work ( no user manual) - limited range as foreseen and mentioned. 30 cm is the max range i have reached.

    Other: i bought 4 of these ir switches to make cool obstacles detection on robots. works well at short range.
