Infra-red remote control

Venue: Finham Park School

IR Remote Control system.
This workshop will introduce the infra-red remote control system developed at Finham Park School (now available through Rapid Electronics). This low cost infra-red kit consists of two modules, a transmitter and receiver. The transmitter module will transmit the status of either the 4 on-board push buttons or external digital signals generated from a students project.
|¡||When a signal is received by the receiver module, the status of each bit is displayed on the receiver module by 4 LEDs|
|¡||The modules have a typical range of around 8 metres, making them ideal for use in student projects like buggy control|
|¡||An optional 4-bit address can be set to enable more than one pair of modules to operate in the same room without interfering with each other|
|¡||The kit includes comprehensive assembly instructions, details of how the unit works and suggested applications|
|¡||Details are provided within the notes to show students how they can incorporate the modules into their own circuit designs|
|¡||Operating voltage 6V, for example 4 x AA batteries|
Teachers attending will be able to take away one remote control kit.
