IR ECLIPSE Click Board
The IR Eclipse Click from MikroE is a popular accessory board incorporating an EE-SX198 photo interrupter sensor, which consists of an infrared transmitter and receiver facing each other, separated by a 3mm-wide slit. When an object, say a piece of paper, is placed in the slit, the beam of infrared that travels from the transmitter to receiver is eclipsed, which in return, activates the sensor. The activated sensor status is indicated by the on-board INT LED.
The application of an IR eclipse click board seen in everyday use would be a printer or copier machine, where the sensor detects whether the paper is in place. IR eclipse click would be an ideal choice for your design wherever there

IC/module: EE-SX198 Photo Interrupter Sensor
EE-SX198 is a compact onboard photomicrosensor that comprises of a general-purpose model featuring an infrared transmitter and receiver on opposite sides and spaced apart by a 3mm slit. Featuring PCB mounting type, this optical sensor has a high resolution with a 0.5-mm-wide aperture. This transmissive interrupter sensor is typically used in printers, copiers, vending machines and so forth.
