RobotDyn Digital IR Receiver

Price: $1.00

Availability: Ships same day*
Product Code: AD504


The RobotDyn IR Receiver Module uses an Everlight IRM-56384 IR receiver to demodulate IR signals and output them digitally. Great for decoding remote controls.
This module works with Arduino using the linked library below.
You can also hook the module up to a Raspberry Pi to enable remote control support in many applications including OSMC / Kodi. Supply 5V and Ground to the module and hook up the module output to GPIO Pin 18 on the Raspberry Pi. Options to turn on remote support are in the MyOSMC menu in Kodi.

5 of 5 Nice board - it does invert the signal December 12, 2020
By: James Winkler from San Diego, CA United States  
The Everlight IRM-56384 and most other IR receivers have an active-low output. The NPN output transistor inverts the signal to an active-high output. Make sure your code expects an active-high or it probably won't work.

The board works well. The signal output is clean. The driver transistor is nice as the IRM-56384's spec does not give an output current that I can see. I did need to modify the Arduino IRremote code to work with active high signals.

The IRM-56384 has a narrow 940nm bandpass filter. The sensitivity drops off fast and an 850nm LED might be attenuated to 30% of the same illuminance of a 940nm LED.

I would recommend this board.

Have a remote control you don't know if it is still good?
These and an Arduino can display the status, and the codes to help troubleshoot.
