The optical dust sensor is very effective in detecting fine particles and it is commonly used in air quality monitoring systems.
The GP2Y1010AU0F compact optical dust sensor is designed to detect fine particles like cigarette smoke and dust. This dust sensor comes with a 6-pin, 1.5 mm pitch mating connector and cable, 150 ohm resistor, and a 16 V 220 uF capacitor.
This product is an optical particle sensor useful to measure air quality. It can be integrated into your innovative projects with the help of which you can see the unpolluted areas in which to relax peacefully.
The consumption of this sensor is very small, about 20mA. It also lends itself to low power applications, reaching an average consumption of 500uA - 1000uA because there is no need to be continually switched on.
