This is the short-range version of the popular GP2D12
infrared distance measuring sensor. Accurately determines
range to target between 4cm and 30cm. Can be used as a proximity
detector to detect objects between 0cm and 50cm.
This sensor uses a hard-to-find 3-pin JST connector. For
your convenience, we highly recommend purchasing a pre-made
cable with connector that mates with this sensor.
