IR Transmitter Tester. Application Circuit 4

ir-transmitter-circuitWe make Infrared Transmitter circuits to generate Pulsed Infrared rays to use with IR Sensor based receivers. The IR Transmitter circuit based on IC 555 generates IR rays pulsating in the frequency typically at 38KHz. The IR Sensor used in the receiver is TSOP 1738 which also works in the same frequency. So here is a simple IR Transmitter Tester to check whether the IR Transmitter is emitting 38 KHz frequency or not.

IR Sensor Tester

Most of the Remote control systems use TSOP 1738 IR Sensor module to control various functions. This IR Sensor is highly sensitive and may damage easily, if is supply voltage increases above 6 volts. This tester is useful to check the working of the IR Sensor. It gives audio-visual indications when the IR sensor is working properly.
