This small digital distance sensor detects objects between 2 cm and 10 cm (0.8″ and 4″) away. With its quick response time, small size, and low current draw, this sensor is a good choice for non-contact object detection.

Overview

These small and responsive sensors from Sharp are great way to quickly detect the presence of nearby objects. The available versions offer three different sensing ranges:

There are a few millimeters of hysteresis around the maximum range threshold and no hysteresis at the minimum range threshold. Note that these sensors will only tell you if there is an object within the detection range along their lines of sight; they will not tell you how far away the object is.

With a detection distances up to 150 mm and a typical sampling rate of almost 400 Hz, these sensors provides attractive alternatives to shorter-range LED-phototransistor reflectance pairs and longer-range but slower sensors such as the Sharp GP2Y0A41SK0F analog distance sensor. The output, Vo, is driven low when the sensor detects an object; otherwise, the output is high.

Please note that this sensor requires external components and has a non-standard 1.5 mm pitch, which can make it difficult to integrate into projects based on a 0.1″ pitch. We offer a carrier board for this sensor that makes it much easier to use by including these required components and providing a 0.1″-pitch, three-pin interface: ground, power, and digital output. The carrier board is available with these sensors pre-installed:

Alternatively, you can order the carrier board without any sensor and solder one in yourself. The pictures below show our bare carrier board (left) and the carrier board with the Sharp digital distance sensor installed (right).

Some example applications include:

  • break-beam sensor or photogate alternative
  • non-contact bumper or obstacle detector
  • a counter or timer of objects as they pass by

Feature summary

  • operating voltage: 2.7 V to 6.2 V
  • average current consumption: 5 mA (typical)
  • distance measuring range
    • GP2Y0D805Z0F: 0.5 cm to 5 cm (0.2″ to 2″)
    • GP2Y0D810Z0F: 2 cm to 10 cm (0.8″ to 4″)
    • GP2Y0D815Z0F: 0.5 cm to 5 cm (0.2″ to 6″)
  • output type: digital signal (low when detecting an object, high otherwise)

Alternative Sharp Distance Sensors

We carry three analog sharp distance sensors as well: Sharp GP2Y0A41SK0F 4 – 30 cm, the Sharp GP2Y0A21YK0F 10 – 80 cm, and the Sharp GP2Y0A02YK0F 20 – 150 cm. These analog distance sensors have longer minimum detection distances and much slower response times than the GP2Y0D805, GP2Y0D810, and GP2Y0D815, but they can see farther and report the distance to the detected object rather than simply if an object is detected.

Note: This sensor requires external components, which are not included. Please see the datasheet or our carrier board for Sharp GP2Y0D815Z0F, GP2Y0D810Z0F, and GP2Y0D805Z0F sensors or for details.
