Sharp GP2Y10 Optical Dust Sensor (328)

Brand : Sumozade
Price : $14.00
​Sharp’s GP2Y1010AU0F is an optical air quality sensor, designed to sense dust particles. An infrared emitting diode and a phototransistor are diagonally arranged into this device, to allow it to detect the reflected light of dust in air. It is especially effective in detecting very fine particles like cigarette smoke, and is commonly used in air purifier systems.

The sensor has a very low current consumption (20mA max, 11mA typical), and can be powered with up to 7VDC. The output of the sensor is an analog voltage proportional to the measured dust density, with a sensitivity of 0.5V/0.1mg/m3.

It can be used with lots of microcontroller platforms such as Arduino with a connections of 150 ohm resistor and 220 uF capacitor.
Sensor can be sent with connection cable for making connection between sensor and various systems.
