- Can cover line detection of 1cm to 3cm wide
- Comes with 5 pairs of IR transmitter and receiver
- Has 5 digital outputs to user indicating the existence of the line
- Calibrate the threshold between dark and bright
The Cytron Auto-Calibrating Line Sensor is super easy to use. Comes with 5 pairs of IR transmitter and receiver. It can easily covers and detects line width of 1cm to 3cm, dark color or bright color. After power up, 1 press to the push button (at the side), it starts "scanning" the surface under it, calibrating the threshold between dark and bright. It takes just 4 to 5 seconds only. Once calibration is done, these settings are stored in internal non-volatile memory, it will still "recognize" the line even after power recylce (Off and On) again. The outputs are digital (0V or 5V) to indicate line detected or no line, so reading the line position is as simple as reading digital signal.
