Infrared Remote Control


Recommended Posts


from this link:  http://home.maine.rr.com/randylinscott/aug98.htm

Iread the following:

The MOD accepts a 40khz IR signal that is modulated at 4 khz. When a signal is received the MOD will go low. The sensitivity of the MOD is set by different values for R1 and C1.

from that I understand that the modulating sig is 4khz and the modulated (carrier) sig is 40khz

Look at the fig below:
the freq of the transmitter sig is calculated from:
f = 1/[0.693 x 0.05 uf x ( 2.2k + 2 x 1K)] =6.871kHz niether 40 nor 4 khz

R1*C1 = 0.4 sec

from where he had that values of freq

Hi guru

ok, lets agree that Radio Shack doesn't have the specs for the MOD anymore so nobody knows what it does.

i need you help in designing a gate guard using IR MOD as RX and IR diode as Tx
i baught  the RX mod's

i search the net but no circuit satisfied me

i want your help guru so please help me

Try to forget this MOD
I have one and its datasheet, i know its pins and wait your answer to costruct the circuits above

i want to get logic 1 or 0 or any thing else at pin 3 of the nand gate when someone pass, is this possibe or not, or you have a better idea
please tell me
