Do you need to receive signals from an IR remote in your project? Try the IR receiver from the Troyka Module series. It's easy to work with and extremely easy to use - no soldering, no small components, no confusion. Nothing needs to be set up, everything is ready for you to use!
Using this module, you can control your device using a remote from any household appliance. If you use this receiver with an infrared LED, you can arrange a cheap wireless two-way half-duplex communication between your two devices via UART.
This IR module uses the TSOP22 chip and can be neatly placed on the front panel of your device, fastened with М3 screws.
The output of the sensor is a digital signal.
Connect via the 3-pin jumper cable to receive a signal from the module. The 3-pin jumper cable needed for the connection is included in the kit.
There are several different ways to wire this module:
Troyka Shield. The most straightforward method. Connect the module to a pin group on Troyka Shield with the 3-pin jumper cable and you’re ready to interface with it from your Arduino.
Troyka Slot Shield. The best choice for quick prototyping. Using slots on the shield, you can get rid of cables. The module will be held securely in place using both pin headers.
Breadboard. For advanced use. Troyka pin headers have 0.1” spacing which is compatible with any breadboard. Simply wire the module like you would do with any IC.
The receiver can be used to receive and decode a signal from conventional household appliance controllers. However, it is often difficult to find the details of their protocol as they are specific for each particular model. Therefore, in order to use the control electronics and the IR receiver together, research is required. A good place to start would be Ken Shirriff's article.
The carrier frequency of this IR receiver is 38 kHz. Philips appliances use a carrier frequency of 36 kHz, Sony and Panasonic use 40 kHz, and the vast majority of other manufacturers use 38 kHz. The carrier frequency of the IR TX-RX pair must be the same, which means Phillips, Sony, and Panasonic may not work.
When using the IR receiver as a wireless UART interface, one should keep in mind that when using an IR receiver, you can only receive small portions of data at a maximum speed of 1200 bits per second.
