Re: Flooding a room with IR

Will definitely try that receiver thank you. I went ahead and mounted 6 TSAL 6400s together and thats working much better. According to the datasheet its supposed to withstand upto 1.5A pulsed Would pulsing 1A through the LEDs help achieve maximal range? Do you think the LEDs can handle that? When u...

Re: Flooding a room with IR

I'm still in the testing phase so i have not decided what the ideal protocol and carrier frequency should be and to be honest im still learning the differences. But im currently just using the basic 38Khz frequency and NEC protocol. My project basically involves controlling LEDs for the most part.

Re: Flooding a room with IR

In the circuit mentioned where the 5V connects to the first LED...if you connect it to 12V instead, you can put up to 6 IR LEDs in series. The rest of your circuit can be 5V or 3V£ levels. Right thats what i thought However, they will likely block each other from time to time. So having more than 1...

Re: Flooding a room with IR

Thanks for the suggestions I will try different LEDs. What do you mean a 12V supply ONLY to the first LED? Im trying to control wearable devices the targets are just people moving normally. No fast targets. I'm using a standard IR receiver i had lying around not sure the part number, i didnt think t...

Flooding a room with IR

Hi, I've been trying to play around with different IR LEDs to flood a room(approx 20-30 sqm) with IR in order to control multiple moving targets at the same time (20+) i'm having some trouble achieving the range i need and flooding at the same time. It seems a narrow beam helps with more range but y...
