Send/receive remote infrared signal with this kit
This mini kit is composed of an infrared receiver, an infrared diode and resistance.
The infrared diode and the resistance allow your projects to behave like an infrared remote control, which allows you to control a television, DVD player, etc. (see tutorial).
The 38 KHz infrared receiver allows your projects to behave like an infrared receiver. It can thus receive the infrared signals of a large part of the remote controls available on the market (those which use a carrier at 38 Khz).
The infrared receiver + transmitter combination in a mini-kit also makes it possible to design an "infrared spy" allowing to capture the signal of an infrared command so that it can then be reproduced from a microcontroller such as Arduino.
We invite you to read our tutorial (see tutorial section below) which approach this technique.
- A 940nm infrared diode of Super Bright type.
- Resistance of 1 KOhms (Brown-Black-Red)
- A TSOP38238 infrared receiver at 38 KHz.
Our wiki includes a tutorial in French on the InfraRouge sensor.
This tutorial describes the infrared receiver and transmitter and their tests.
You will also find explanations concerning the transport of information on a carrier at 38 Khz.
An advanced section explains how to spy on and decode an infrared signal and then reproduce it.
You will also find a reference to the IRRemote library for Arduino there.
