Use this IR Receiver Diode -5mm for infrared remote control of your next project. With low power consumption and an easy to use package, it mates well with embedded electronics and can be used with common IR remotes.
The 5mm is a miniaturized receiver for infrared remote control systems. A PIN diode and a amplifier are assembled on a lead frame while the epoxy package acts as an IR filter. The demodulated output signal can be directly decoded by a microprocessor. The 5mm is compatible with all common IR remote control data formats.
IR receiver diodes can be used in object detection applications like line follower,obstacle detecting robots etc.These were used in our IR Sensor Array.
