MH Sensor Series

This is an easy to use sensor module you can use to sense the intensity of infrared light reflection on surface. You can use this as the line tracking sensor to make line following robots, or proximity sensor to sense object or obstacle in front of the optical sensor pair.

Note : this sensor can works with both analog and digital mode. You can use its analog output (AO) to get the intensity reading or digital output (DO), adjust the potentiometer (a.k.a. trimmer) to set the digital output sensitivity.
