Flame Sensor Module

Introduction

Flame Sensor module can be used to detect fire source or other light sources of the wave length in the range of 760nm - 1100 nm. It is based on the YG1006 sensor which is a high speed and high sensitive NPN silicon phototransistor. Due to its black epoxy, the sensor is sensitive to infrared radiation. It can be used as a robot’s eyes to find the fire source. When detected the flame, LED will light and D0 output low voltage level.

Tip: light it with lamp won’t have any react unless you show him the flame, his name is flame sensor module.

Usage

The module is mainly used to detect the infrared light. It outputs digital signal 0 or 1 through a Comparator output. The output value will be 0 when infrared light is detected. And the sensitivity is adjustable by the precision potentiometer.

1. Connect the module to the Arduino/Catduino.

2.Connect Arduino or Catduino to PC by using a USB cable.

3.Copy and paste code below to a new Arduino sketch, upload.

 

[code]

/*

 flame sensor connects to the analog pin 5 of Catuino.

 led connect to pin 2 of Catduino.

 */

int sensor=A5;    //Define the analog pin 5 as flame sensor.

int led=2;        //Define the pin 2 as led.

void setup() {

  pinMode(sensor, INPUT);  //Flame sensor is input.

  pinMode(led, OUTPUT);    //Led is output.

  Serial.begin(9600);     //Initial serial baud rate of 9600.

}

void loop() {

  int sensor_value=analogRead(sensor);

  int lightIntensity=map(sensor_value, 0, 1023, 0, 255);

  analogWrite(led,lightIntensity);

  Serial.print("sensor_value=");

  Serial.println(sensor_value);

  Serial.print("lightIntensity=");

  Serial.println(lightIntensity);

  delay(500);   //Delay half of a second.

}

[/code]


 

The LED will light up when there is infrared light who's wave length is in the range of 760- 1100mm.
