Sharp GP2Y0A02YK0F Distance Measuring Sensor

Sharp GP2Y0A02YK0F  Distance Measuring Sensor

GP2Y0A02YK0F is a distance measuring sensor unit, composed of an integrated combination of PSD (position sensitive detector) , IRED (infrared emitting diode) and signal processing circuit.The variety of the reflectivity of the object, the environmental temperature and the operating duration are not influenced easily to the distance detection because of adopting the triangulation method. This device outputs the voltage corresponding to the  detection distance. So this sensor can also be used as a proximity sensor.

1. Distance measuring range : 20 to 150 cm 
2. Analog output type 
3. Package size : 29.5×13×21.6 mm 
4. Consumption current : Typ. 33 mA 
5. Supply voltage : 4.5 to 5.5 V


  • Touch-less switch (Sanitary equipment, Control of illumination, etc. ) 
  • Sensor for energy saving (ATM, Copier, Vending machine, Laptop computer, LCD monitor) 
  • Amusement equipment (Robot, Arcade game machine)
