Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits Dust Sensor Module Kit - GP2Y1014AU0F with Cable : ID 4649 - This simple dust sensor is a great way to add basic particulate sensing to your next project. It's not as fully featured as our I2C/UART-based sensors, with just a single analog voltage output. However, for the price, it can't be beat!
Sharp's GP2Y1010AU0F is an optical air quality sensor designed to sense dust particles in the air. The infrared led and phototransistor diagonal inside the GP2Y1010AU0F allows it to detect reflected light from dust in the air, especially for very fine particles, like cigarette smoke.
GP2Y1010AU0F Attachment-2 Sheet No.: OP13024EN 5. Principles of dust detection This dust sensor “GP2Y1010AU0F” is the device to detect house dust, cigarette smoke, etc. and designed as a sensor for automatic running of application like air purifier and air conditioner with air purifier function.
air quality monitoring. Approach Set Up An Arduino Ethernet is connected to the Sharp sensor following the schematic in the Sharp GP2Y1010AU0F Spec LED connected to pin 2 is turned on, after the analog pin A0 connected to Vo is sampled. later, the LED is turned off and is waited before the 10ms sequence is repeated (Arduino Source Code).
Sharp GP2Y1010AU0F onboard, detecting fine particle larger than μm in diameter, even like the cigarette smoke Low power consumption, analog voltage output, the output level is linear with dust density Embedded voltage boost circuit to support wide range of power supply Specifications Sensitivity : /(100μg/m3) Measurement range : 500μg/m3
