Infra-red Receiver Sensor (VS1838B) – pack of 10


In stock

SKU: 550 Category:


This is a lone infra-red sensor for use with an Arduino or Raspberry Pi. It can be used to decode infra-red signals from remote controls such as a TV remote or some RC vehicle remotes. It is especially designed to be reliable and easy to use with infra-red filters and a pre-amplifier IC built in.  The infra-red sensor is just the sensor and you will need to connect it to the appropriate input and output pins on the Arduino or Raspberry Pi for it to function. This is simple as it only has 3 connections, power, ground, and signal out.  This sensor is only a receiver and not a transmitter!
