|Jameco Part no. 2171014|
The IRGEII is an IR (Infrared) Transmitter and Receiver pair that uses a 38 KHZ frequency of invisible light to communicate simple instructions. The heart of the IRGEII is a small PicAxe micro-controller that both creates the 38Khz transmission and also translates the received signal. The receiver includes a Bi-Color (Red/Green) LED that displays one or the other received codes. It also provides a 2 pin bus that can be used to control anything attached to it. Applications are shown that include a remote control LED light dimmer and a direction of travel remote control for a Parallax Boe-Bot. The transmitter is designed to fit on top of an included 2AAA battery holder and the receiver is powered by the host circuit it is attached to.
