EASY plug Ultimate Starter Learning Kit Project 8: There’s flame

Posted by Fiona Su on

Overview
What's the simplest way to check the fire happened? Use a flame sensor. In this project, we simply test the flame sensor to turn on led if detecting flame.
Component Required
  • EASY plug control board*1
  • EASY plug Flame Sensor *1
  • EASY plug LED Module*1
  • EASY plug Fan Motor*1
  • RJ11 cable *2
  • USB cable*1
Component Introduction
EASY plug Flame Sensor Module
The flame sensor can be used to detect fire or other wavelength at 760nm ~1100nm light.
In the fire-fighting robot game, the flame plays an important role in the probe, which can be used as the robot's eyes to find fire source.
The potentiometer on the flame sensor can be used to adjust the sensitivity.
  • Supply Voltage: 3.3V to 5V
  • Detection range: 500px (4.8V) ~ 2500px (1V)
  • Spectral Bandwidth Range: 760nm ~ 1100nm
  • Operating temperature: -25℃ to 85℃
  • Sensor type: digital

Connect It Up
Connect the EASY Plug Flame Sensor and LED module to control board using RJ11 cables.
