Want to communicate via infrared technology? We have Seeed Studio’s Grove – Infrared Receiver (IR) v1.2 especially for you. Infrared is a quick, cheap, and easy method to transmit data. You can transmit infrared signals through an infrared LED, while there is an infrared receiver to get the signals on the other side. You can receive infrared signals via an IR detector on the Infrared Receiver; moreover, you can use it for remote control detection. The IR detector has a demodulator inside it that searches for modulated IR at 38 KHz. The Infrared Receiver can receive signals well within 10 meters. If more than 10 meters, the receiver may not get the signals. We often use the two Groves, Grove – Infrared Receiver and the Grove – Infrared Emitter to work together.
This receiver is designed to work in tandem with the Grove – Infrared Emitter so that you can quickly build your own infrared data system. Applications of this receiver include infrared remote control units with high power requirements, free air transmission systems, and as an infrared receiver for optical counters and card readers. The Grove – Infrared Receiver is a great tool to cheaply integrate remote control/communication to any of your projects.
