An Infrared emitter, or IR emitter, is a source of light energy in the infrared spectrum. This little part is a light emitting diode (LED) that is used in order to transmit infrared signals from a remote control. This simple device operates at 940nm and works well for generic IR systems. This emitter is driven up to 50mA with a current limiting resistor as with any LED device.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
