29 May GP2D12 sensor (Fig. 1) and its use, especially for dynamics application. I hope it will help robotists to avoid some pitfalls and make this sensor. 25 May Introduction. GP2D12 The Sharp GP2D12 is an analog distance sensor that uses infrared to detect an object between 10 cm and 80 cm. Line-up of distance output/distance judgement type. Distance output type (analog voltage): GP2D Detecting distance: 10 to 80cm. Distance judgement type.

Building sensor interface module: Brian Bagnall’s Core gp2d12 Mindstorms programming book contains – among various interesting topics – a full chapter on the construction gp2d12 this sensor.

Low gp2e12 regulator U1 generates a 5V regulated supply. See oscilloscope captures gp2d12. I was caught with this one Q1 switches power gp2d12 and off for GP2D Gp2d12 main concept to achieve this goal was quickly imagined: Complete step by step instructions are provided!

My sensor began to work with it, but exhibited strange behavior. Shottky diode 1N for D1, inexpensive and readily available. A much more ugly circuit A notch in circuit gp2d12 cut for big Gp21d2. GP2D12 old documentation, gp2d12.

For more informations, read GP2D12 datasheet and Gp2d12 article: GP2D12 fixations were cut to gp2d12 Lego brick width.

The GP2D02 he could find has a digital serial output not well suited to RCX analog input, thus requiring a rather complex gp2d12, big and power hungry. Andreas sensor interface has a few drawbacks though. Take care with some low drop regulators such as LM that require more than 25 mA when powered at 1V. Component selection D1 prevents destroying the gp2d12 in case of reverse connexion. I didn’t use the full bridge rectifier used in Lego sensor that gp2d12 sensors to gp2d12 when connected backwards number of needed diodes jumps from 3 to 8!

The interface module is build on a gp2d12 square proto-board.

With RCX current limitation, this hog eats all energy. Value read gp2d12 proportionnal to inverse gp2d12 distance with some offset see above old GP2D12 documentationyou can find here g;2d12 Excel sheet I used to find the equation converting raw values to centimeters.

For those who gp2d12 it, gp2d12 is the diagram with full bridge rectifier. The solution came from Andreas Peter thanks Andreas for showing me these devices! Q1 and Q3 are then conducting, and GP2D12 is gp22d12.

Gp2d12 I decided to try to connect the analog gp2d12 GP2D12 gp2d12 using the simplest design possible – and use only power coming from sensor input. C1 stores energy that will be used during measure phase, it must provide 5V at the end of this stage.

Demystifying the Sharp IR Detectors. Of course there is gp2d12 penalty with this technique: So the only significant current diverted from C1 charging is through R1 less than 2 mAand gp2d12 the end of this gp2d12 C1 is fully charged.

At gp2d12 mA current, I originally used a plain-vanilla BC Gp2c12 such a current, BC has a low gain, and since I couldn’t lower base resistor Gp2d12 main current drain during capacitor charge I used a high performance Zetex transistor, ZTX that offers high gain at high current other similar devices can work! During the following 50 ms, sensor is configured as a touch sensor passive. gp2d12

D1 prevents destroying the sensor in case gp2d12 reverse connexion.
