Distance Phidget 1300mm

£42.84 £35.70

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.

The DST1002 connects to a VINT hub.
