It has both a Photodiode and a Phototransistor coupled in its package. The photo diode has two pins Anode and Cathode which can be used to generate an IR signal. Similarly the Photo transistor also has two pins Collector and Emitter which can be used to read the IR signal that is reflected back. This sensor can be used to detect the presence of object or any other reflective surface in front it, also with some level of programming it can also calculate the distance of the object in front it. But the distance can only be calculated for short range objects and is also subjected o environmental disturbance. So if you look for a sensor to measure distance of an object in front of it you should try the HC-SR04 Ultrasonic sensor.

This sensor is often used in line following robots, auto data logging on utility meters, because this module can sense if a surface is white or black. The measuring distance range from 1mm to 8mm, and the central point is about 2. There is also an on-board potentiometer to adjust the sensitivity.

The infrared diode will emmitting the infrared continutelly when the module connect to the power, when the emitted infrared light has not been reflected or the strength is not big enough,the triode will in the off state, at this time, D0 output logic LOW and the signal indicate LED off.

Using IR Sensor (TCRT 5000) With Arduino and Program to Remove Noise

So after using this method IR sensor need not be calibrated for different ambiance condition. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. Distance measuring is very easy using IR sensor. A beam of IR is transmitted to target and reflected beam is captured by the photodiode. Photodiode measures the intensity of light here mostly IR light. IR diode does not measure intensity of just IR light but it is also sensitive to visible light.


TCRT5000 Reflective Optical Sensor module example

It works by transmitting a beam of IR light downward toward the surface. Since the black absorbs light, when the IR emission tube shines on a black surface, the reflected light is less and so less IR rays are received by the receiving tube. It indicates the resistance is large; then the comparator outputs high and the indicator LED goes out. Similarly, when it shines on a white surface, the reflected light becomes more.
