Electronic Brick - Flame Sensor can be used to detect fire source or other light sources of the wavelength in the range of 760nm - 1100 nm. Due to its black epoxy, the sensor is sensitive to infrared radiation. The detection range can be adjusted by the potentiometer.
Working Voltage: 3.3V~5V
Range of Spectral Bandwidth: 760 ~ 1100nm
Detection range: 20cm (4.8V) ~ 100cm(1V)
Response Time: 15us
Operating Temperature: -25 ~ +85 degree centigrade
With Makerduino Demo Code
With Power Light and Signal Ligh
Use with Makerduino
The following steps show how to use EB - Flame Sensor with Makerduino.
Electronic Brick Shield
EB - Flame Sensor
EB - LED
A/B type USB cable
Female DuPont wires
1. Connect Electronic Brick Shield onto Makerduino to bring out all the Makerduino Pins.
2. Connect EB - Flame Sensor to Makerduino as following.
3. Connect the Makerduino to Computer by the USB cable.
4. Download the Makerduino demo code EB - Flame Sensor.zip. Unzip the code directly into the libraries folder.
5. Open Makerduino IDE, choose the right Board and Serial Port. Open the sketch EB_ FlameSensor.ino and upload it to the Makerduino.
The following is the demo code for EB - Flame Sensor. (Note: It could be a little different from the code file downloaded. Please follow the downloaded file.)
Function: When the sensor detects the flame, the the LED will be turned on.
Hardware: EB - Flame Sensor, EB - LED
#define FLAME_SENSOR 3 //connect EB - Flame Sensor to digital pin3
#define LED 2//connect EB - LED to pin2
else return true;
6. Check the Results. After the sketch is successfully uploaded, the signal light and the EB - LED are off in normal condition. When put an ignited cigarette round the sensor, the signal light and the EB - LED will turn on.
Find EB - Flame Sensor.zip to download schematic and other material.
