Description: 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.
To interface with the sensor you need to connect to its 6-pin, 1.5mm pitch connector; we do have a mating connector for this.
Dimensions: 1.81 x 1.18 x 0.69" (46.0 × 30.0 × 17.6 mm)

No cable so hard to use, It’s better to buy one with cable on Ebay

Sparkfun doesn’t provide the right wire harness to make it usable, if you buy the little plastic thing they cheaply sell separately you still need a weird wire harness, dumb spark-fun doesn’t make it usable and ended up buying it separately and wai5ting an extra week. sparkfun doesn’t even sell the right wire kit to use this sensor
