GP2Y1010AU0F Compact Optical Dust/Smoke Sensor

HCSENS0024

New

The GP2Y1010AU0F (HCSENS0024) from Sharp is an optical air quality sensor, designed to sense dust particles. An infrared emitting diode (IRED) and a phototransistor are diagonally arranged into this device, which allows it to detect the reflected light of dust in air. It is very effective in detecting very fine particles like the cigarette smoke.

The GP2Y1010AU0F (HCSENS0024) from Sharp is an optical air quality sensor, designed to sense dust particles. An infrared emitting diode (IRED) and a phototransistor are diagonally arranged into this device, which allows it to detect the reflected light of dust in air. It is very effective in detecting very fine particles like the cigarette smoke.

The sensor has a very low consumption current of only 20mA (MAX) (11mA Typical) whilst the sensor is taking a measurement. The output of the sensor is an analogue voltage proportional to the measured dust density, with a sensitivity of 0.5V/0.1mg/m3. 

This sensor comes complete with a connection cable (connector already attached), a 150 Ohm current limiting resistor for use with the IR LED, and a 220uF 16V capacitor. Please see diagram for how to use these components.

Overall Dimensions: 46mm x 33mm x 18mm
Product code: HCSENS0024


Please note: This sensor has been calibrated by the factory. Adjusting the sensitivity potentiometer situated on the back of the module will cause the module to give inaccurate readings. 

A suitable capacitor and resistor are supplied with this kit. Do not omit these components as it will cause damage and/or inaccurate reading from the sensor
