Do you want to control your Arduino with an IR remote? Do you want to use your Arduino to control your stereo or other devices?.
The Infrared Emitter is used to transmit infrared signals through an infrared LED, while there is an Infrared receiver to get the signals on the other side .
An infrared LED is like any other LED, with its color centered around 940nm. We can use the emitter not only to transmit data or commands, but also to emulate remotes to control your home appliance using an Arduino. The Infrared Emitter can transmit signals reliable up to 10 meters. Beyond 10 meters, the receiver may not get the signals.
This infrared emitter module uses TSAL6200 High Power Infrared Emitting Diode, 940 nm. For data sheet please click here
