Dust Sensor (Optical)
This is an air quality sensor from sparkfun. Using an infrared emitting diode and a phototransistor, the sensor detects the reflected light of dust in the air. The sensor can be used for detecting dust in the air in an air purifier, air conditioner, air monitor or clean room. It is especially effective in detecting very fine particles.
The sensor has a very low current consumption (20mA max, 11mA typical), and can be powered with up to 7VDC. The output of the sensor is an analog voltage proportional to the measured dust density, with a sensitivity of 0.5V/0.1mg/m3.
To interface with the sensor you need to connect to its 6-pin, 1.5mm pitch connector and housing. We stock in Future Electronics Egypt.
