Sending Data Over IR Wireless Infrared Communication Link System
The core infrared theory for getting this tutorial working was already described in the Infrared Receiver tutorial, so I`ll run through an abridged version here. First I`ll describe as an overview what infrared is and how it relates to our lives, then I`ll go further to how we can transmit digital data over this wireless link. The way that the inf

2N3904 is the NPN transistor. Looking at the flat face, the left lead is Emitter (pin 1 in schematic), the middle lead is Base (pin 2 in schematic), the right lead is Collector (pin 3 in schematic). Another end of 50 Ohm resistor to +5v pin on Arduino. (An alternative would be use a bigger resistor, say 100 Ohm, to replace the 50 Ohm one, and conn
Pulse Circuits for Infrared LEDs and Visible Diode Lasers
This article demonstrates basic circuits for pulsing infrared LEDs and low power visible semiconductor lasers using components which are inexpensive and fairly readily available. Many interesting and useful applications can be found in the references cited here, as well as several online web pages. This article focuses on the basic circuits. The i
Infrared Fire-Cracker Igniter
Firecrackers are normally ignited by using a matchstick or a candle. You have to run away quickly after igniting the fuse of the firecracker. This method of igniting firecracker is unsafe, because the danger of the firecracker bursting before you reach a safe distance is always there. The device described here uses remote control, usually used wit
Infrared Remote Receiver Has Four Outputs
This circuit enables any infrared (IR) remote control to control the outputs of a 4017 decade counter. It`s quite simple really and uses a 3-terminal IR receiver (IRD1) to pick up infrared signals from the transmitter. IRD1`s output is then coupled to NPN transistor Q1 via a 220nF capacitor. Transistor Q1 functions as a common-emitter amplifier wi
Infrared Remote Tester
A very simple device allowing a quick check of common Infra-red Remote-Controls can be useful to the electronics amateur, frequently asked to repair or test these ubiquitous devices. A reliable circuit was designed with a handful of components: the LED will flash when any of the Remote-Control push buttons will be pressed. The side of the Remote-C
Long-Range IR Transmitter
Most of the IR remotes work reliably within a range of 5 metres. The circuit complexity increases if you design the IR transmitter for reliable operation over a longer range, say, 10 metres. To double the range from 5 metres to 10 metres, you need to increase the transmitted power four times. If you wish to real i se a highly directional IR beam (
On-off Infrared Remote Control
Most homes today have at least a few infrared remote controls, whether they be for the television, the video recorder, the stereo, etc. Despite that fact, who among us has not cursed the light that remained lit after we just sat down in a comfortable chair to watch a good film This project proposes to solve that problem thanks to its original app
Simple Infrared Control Extender
Lots of consumer electronic equipment like TV sets, VCRs, CD and DVD players employs infrared remote control. In some cases, it is desirable to extend the range of the available control and this circuit fits the bill, receiving the IR signal from your remote control and re-transmitting it, for example, around a corner into another room. Photodiode

X Infrared Remote Control
The ELM622 by ELM Electronics is a preprogrammed PIC which converts commands from a Sony infrared remote control into a serial data stream. An IR receiver using a ELM622 requires no kernel modifications. This project shows how to build a Linux IR receiver based on the ELM622 and how to use the receiver to control an X application such as xmms. The
infrared extending IR range
Using this schematic I doubled the range of my IR LED, the power drawn in the circuit is now 37mA. My former circuit, without using a NPN transistor drew 20mA (JeeNode max per digital pin). So that`s almost twice the power. You could increase this even further using smaller valued resistors, but that would push the boundaries of the LED and transi
DIY Infrared Remote Extender Unit
Here`s a few details on the Infrared Remote Control Extender unit I designed and built to control my NAD T752 A/V receiver. The NAD T752 has an IR input socket on the back of it for system installs where the unit has to be inside a cabinet or at least out of normal Infrared control range. Many newer A/V receivers have this feature, and so it came

When the 36 kHz infrared light from the LEDs is reflected by an object, one of the receiver modules will be triggered, and the PIC16F84 µController will steer the ROBOT away from the objects by reversing one of the motors.
infrared receiver ir rx output waveform
In the picture above, Oscium`s iMSO-104 oscilloscope is measuring the output waveform of an infrared receiver (IR Rx). The iPad and iMSO are functioning as the oscilloscope for measuring the receiver`s output signal as the relative alignment between transmitter and receiver varies. There are two waveforms captured on the oscilloscope screen....
infrared ir receiver
The way that this receiver works is very similar to the way that we as humans beings work. We see colors and we act depending on the different things seen. The phototransistors does the same thing, if reacts depending upon the intensity of infrared light being shined at it. The real difference between the two parallels seen above is that we humans
Infrared IR Receiver Circuit
The Infrared IR Receiver circuit is not particularly unique. The main components are the phototransistor, the microcontroler and the amplifier. If you can understand how these three devices transfer data, then you should have no problem getting the circuit to work on your own. This is where the true magic happens. The phototransistor receives t
