4Pin KY-026 Flame Sensor Module

This 4Pin Flame Sensor Module is used to detect fire/flame sources or other light sources of the wavelength in the range of 760nm 1100 nm. It is based on the YG1006 sensor which is a high speed and high sensitive NPN silicon phototransistor. Due to its black epoxy, the sensor is sensitive to infrared radiation.

The sensor can be a great addition to a firefighting robot, it can be used as a robot's eye to find the fire source. When the sensor detects flame the Signal LED will light up and the D0 pin goes LOW.

The module has 2 outputs: Analogue, which gives a real-time voltage output signal on thermal resistance, and digital which allows temperature thresholds to be set via a potentiometer.

1.What is KY 026 flame sensor?

  • KY-026 flame sensor is a module that consists of a flame sensor and a comparator circuit that is used to detect the presence of a flame or fire. It is often used in projects that require fire detection or prevention, such as in home security systems or fire alarm systems.
  • The flame sensor component of the KY-026 module is a photodiode that is sensitive to the infrared radiation emitted by flames. When a flame is detected, the sensor produces a current proportional to the intensity of the infrared radiation. The comparator circuit is used to compare this current with a reference voltage and produce a digital output signal indicating the presence or absence of a flame.

2.How do you connect a flame sensor?

  • To connect a flame sensor, you will need to follow these steps:
    • Gather the necessary materials:
      • Flame sensor module (such as the KY-026)
      • Microcontroller or other control device (such as an Arduino)
      • Breadboard and jumper wires
    • Connect the flame sensor to the breadboard:
      • The flame sensor module will typically have three pins: VCC, GND, and DO (data output).
      • Connect the VCC pin to the power supply rail on the breadboard (usually the + side).
      • Connect the GND pin to the ground rail on the breadboard (usually the - side).
      • Connect the DO pin to a digital input on the microcontroller.
    • Connect the microcontroller to the breadboard:
      • Connect the power supply pins on the microcontroller to the power and ground rails on the breadboard using jumper wires.
      • Connect the digital input on the microcontroller to the DO pin on the flame sensor using a jumper wire.
    • Upload a sketch to the microcontroller:
      • Use a software development environment (such as the Arduino IDE) to write a sketch that reads the digital input from the flame sensor and performs a desired action (such as sending an alert or activating a warning system) when a flame is detected.
      • Upload the sketch to the microcontroller using a USB cable or other method.
    • Test the flame sensor:
      • Point the flame sensor at a flame or other source of infrared radiation and verify that the microcontroller responds as expected.

3.What is flame sensor module?

  • A flame sensor module is a device that consists of a flame sensor and a comparator circuit, and is used to detect the presence of a flame or fire. The flame sensor component of the module is typically a photodiode that is sensitive to the infrared radiation emitted by flames. When a flame is detected, the sensor produces a current proportional to the intensity of the infrared radiation. The comparator circuit is used to compare this current with a reference voltage and produce a digital output signal indicating the presence or absence of a flame.

4.How do flame sensors work?

  • Flame sensors work by detecting the infrared radiation emitted by flames. Infrared radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength longer than visible light, but shorter than microwaves. It is invisible to the human eye, but can be detected by special sensors. Flame sensors consist of a photodiode, which is a type of semiconductor device that is sensitive to infrared radiation. When a flame is present, the photodiode absorbs the infrared radiation and produces a current proportional to the intensity of the radiation. This current is then compared to a reference voltage by a comparator circuit, which produces a digital output signal indicating the presence or absence of a flame.
