Sharp GP2Y0D810Z0F Distance Sensor
It is one of Sharp's fastest distance sensors - with a sample rate of almost 400 Hz and is an attractive alternative to short-range phototransistors and longer-range analog distance sensors.
Output is high normally and low when the sensor detects an object. This sensor only tells if the object's nearby - not how near or far the sensor is - so they're great for break-beam, obstacle detection, and object counting.
This sensor comes with a 3-pin male header and a 3-pin right-angle male header. You can connect these pins with a servo cable. The square pad is ground, the middle is VIN, and the remaining pad is output. If you place a large capacitor (more than 10uF) between power and ground you should see an increase in performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is Sharp Distance Sensor? What is its detection range?
- The Sharp distance sensors are a popular choice for many projects that require accurate distance measurements. This IR sensor is more economical than sonar rangefinders, yet it provides much better performance than other IR alternatives.
The detection range of this version is approximately 2cm to 10cm.
2. What are Distance Sensors used?
- Distance sensors are used to measure the distance or presence of target objects by sending a pulsed wave at the object and then measuring the time for it to return. Knowing the speed, the sensor can determine the distance of the object.
