MH Sensor Series

This is an easy to use sensor module you can use to sense the presence of all type of object, including living things, as long as the object being sense is not completely transparent. This is the famous sensor that you can use in many school projects for counting, alarming, triggering and actuator activation purposes. You can use this sensor for sensing black and white lines, suitable for making optical pattern projects and line following robots. Also, you can use this sensor to sense frequency of object.

Note : this sensor only works in DIGITAL mode. You can connect the digital output (DO) to sense. Adjust the potentiometer (a.k.a. trimmer) to set the digital output (DO) sensitivity.
