Description: Infrared proximity sensor made by Sharp. Part # GP2Y0A41SK0F has an analog output that varies from 3.1V at 4cm to 0.3V at 30cm with a supply voltage between 4.5 and 5.5VDC. The sensor has a Japanese Solderless Terminal (JST) Connector. We recommend purchasing the related pigtail below or soldering wires directly to the back of the module.

…For what it does. It was the wrong tool for my project (obstacle detection) due to the field of view. It will range a wall or big thing, but a chair leg may not be noticed. Was very easy to use and implement. The pigtail Sparkfun recommends is also good and makes installation quick.
