The TCRT5000 Ardunio TCRT5000 arduino reflective infrared (IR) sensor module commonly used for object detection and proximity sensing applications. It is designed to emit infrared light and detect the reflected light from nearby objects, allowing it to determine the presence or absence of objects within its sensing range.

Here are some key features and details about the TCRT5000 Reflective IR sensor:

Infrared Emitter and Phototransistor: The TCRT5000 sensor module consists of an infrared emitter (infrared LED) and a phototransistor. The infrared LED emits infrared light, and the phototransistor detects the intensity of the reflected infrared light.

Operating Principle: When an object is placed within the sensing range of the sensor, the emitted infrared light reflects off the object's surface and is detected by the phototransistor. The presence of the object alters the amount of reflected light, which is then used to detect the object's presence.

Digital Output: The TCRT5000 sensor provides a digital output that indicates whether an object is detected or not. When an object is detected within its range, the output goes low (logical 0); otherwise, the output remains high (logical 1).

Sensing Range: The sensing range of the TCRT5000 arduino depends on the object's reflectivity and the ambient lighting conditions but is typically limited to a few centimeters.

Compact Size: The sensor module is small and easy to integrate into various electronic projects and systems.

Low Power Consumption: The TCRT5000 sensor module operates on low power, making it suitable for battery-powered applications.

Versatile Applications:

Line Following Robots: tcrt5000 ir sensor can be used in line-following robots to detect lines or tracks on the ground. By placing the sensors under the robot and programming it to follow the detected line, the robot can autonomously navigate along a predefined path.

Obstacle Avoidance: The TCRT5000 sensor can be easily interfaced with microcontrollers or other digital circuits using its digital output.

Proximity Sensing: The sensor can be used to detect the presence or absence of an object in its detection range. This can be applied in automatic faucets, soap dispensers, hand dryers, and other systems where the sensor triggers an action when an object is detected within a certain range.

Edge and Crack Detection: Detecting edges and cracks in surfaces using tcrt5000 ir sensor Reflective IR sensors can be a useful application for quality control, inspection, and automation processes.

NOTE: When working with the tcrt5000 ir sensor , it's essential to consider factors such as ambient lighting conditions.

Just what I needed

These work better on my train layout than the 3mm versions others supply which must be placed at a 45 degree to each other through the table.

Sensitive and easy to use

These worked great for the optical theremin I designed. Search "Meercreate theremin"
