Dust Sensor GP2Y1010AU0F with Adapter Board
Sharp’s Dust Sensor GP2Y1010AU0F is an optical air quality sensor, it is designed to sense dust particles. An infrared emitting diode and a photo-transistor are diagonally arranged inside the device that allows 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 also includes an adapter that will save time on circuit building and debugging.
