DST1000_0 Distance Phidget

0 out of 5 based on 0 customer ratings



Do you need a sensor that can measure short distances or detect the motion of objects passing by? TheDST1000_0 Distance Phidget uses infrared light and a time-of-flight calculation to determine how far away an object is. It can report the distance of the object it’s pointed at as often as every 10 milliseconds, and will throw a saturation event when the distance exceeds the sensor’s maximum range. Since infrared light is what it uses for the measurement, highly reflective objects will be easier to measure.

The DST1000 connects to a VINT hub. Have a look at the “Compatible Products” tab for a list of Phidgets with VINT ports.

Note: The label on the enclosure that reads “0-200mm” is innacurate. In optimal conditions, this sensor will have a maximum distance of approximately 170mm.

* – Maximum distance depends on the reflectivity of the surface of the object. Typical results are around 170mm, but could be as low as 100mm for some surfaces. The “200mm” listed on the enclosure is incorrect.
