IR Infrared Receiver TSOP 1838
The TSOP1838 is a miniature IR receiver IC form the TSOP18xx series. This particular model TSOP1838 will respond to 38kHz IR signals from remote control devices. It is normally used as IR receiver in remote control applications like TV, AC etc. This version is small in size and hence can be used in compact devices
|Pin Number||Pin Name||Description|
|1||Out||The signal pin gives out the sequence based on the IR signal detected|
|2||Ground||Connected to the Ground of circuit|
|3||Vcc||Typically connect to +5V, 2.5V to 5.5V|
Note: Complete Technical Details can be found at the datasheet given at the end of this page.
- High Range and wide coverage area.
- Improved immunity against HF and RF noise
- Has in-built pre amplifier
- TTL and CMOS compatible
Where to use TSOP-1838 Sensor
The TSOP sensor has the ability to read the output signals from home remotes like TV remote, Home theatre remote, AC remote etc.. All these remotes will work with a frequency of 38kHz and this IC can pick up any IR signals process them and provide the output on pin 3. So if you are looking for a sensor to analyze, re-create or duplicate the functions of a remote then this IC will be the perfect choice for you.
Also keep in mind that this series TSOP-1838 will receive only 38Khz IR signals.
How to test and use TSOP1838 Sensor
The TSOP-1838 is an IR Receiver Sensor, which can be used to receive IR signals of 38Khz. The sensor operates on 5V and consumes around 5mA to operate. Normally the signal pin IC is connected to a microcontroller to analyse the IR signal received. But let’s consider that you just purchased the IC and you want to check it is working.
