Measure distances up to 650mm with this infrared time-of-flight sensor.

Connects to a VINT port.


Do you need a sensor that can measure short distances or detect the motion of objects passing by? This Phidget uses infrared light and a time-of-flight calculation to determine how far away an object is.

It can report the distance of the object it's pointed at as often as every 30 milliseconds, and will throw a out-of-range event when the distance exceeds the sensor's maximum range. Since infrared light is what it uses for the measurement, highly reflective objects will be easier to measure.
