Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is TSOP? What does 1738 mean?
- TSOP is the standard IR remote control receiver series, supporting all major transmission codes. It has Low power consumption and High immunity against ambient light.
1738 in TSOP 1738 indicates infrared receiver is tuned to receive IR of frequency 38 kHz only.
2. How does TSOP 1738 sensor work?
- The (+) and the (-) are the supply pins of the IC and are specified to be connected across a 5V typical supply level, to be precise any voltage between 3 and 6V may be applied here, although 5V works the best. The curved lens which can be seen over the central portion of sensor body is where the infrared signal from a remote control handset is focused for enabling the TSOP to initiate its sensing operations.
3. Where to use TSOP-1738 Sensor?
- The TSOP sensor has the ability to read the output signals from home remotes like TV remote, Home theatre remote, AC remote etc.. All these remotes will work with a frequency of 38kHz and this IC can pick up any IR signals process them and provide the output on pin 3. So if you are looking for a sensor to analyze, re-create or duplicate the functions of a remote then this IC will be the perfect choice for you.
