Brand: Cytron
Category: PIR and IR Sensor

Maker Reflect is a tiny reflectance sensor that consists of an infrared (IR) LED that transmits IR light onto a surface and a phototransistor measures how much light is reflected back. The output is in analog voltage – The more IR light is sensed by the phototransistor, the lower the voltage.

Typically this sensor is used in line following robot as the white surfaces reflect more IR than black surfaces. However, it is not limited to line follower, there is much more application which can utilize the Maker Reflect. Eg.: Edge/Border sensor in Sumo robot, wall sensor in maze solving robot, short-distance object detector (presence sensor), a sensor for rotary wheel encoder, etc.

Measuring only (L)18.1mm x (W)8.4mm x (H)4.2mm (Exclude the header pin), this tiny sensor can be easily fitted in the tightest space available on your robot. We purposely designed the sensor so that the mounting hole is at the center so that the sensor can be at the front-most position. This is especially important in a Sumo robot.
