An infrared receiver, or IR receiver, is hardware that sends information from an infrared remote control to another device by receiving and decoding signals. In general, the receiver outputs a code to uniquely identify the infrared signal that it receives. This code is then used in order to convert signals from the remote control into a format that can be understood by the other device. It is the part of a device that receives infrared commands from a remote control.
We offer many of the most common types categorized by supply voltage, carrier frequency, transmission distance, packaging type and supply current. The most common sizes for carrier frequency are 36kHz, 38kHz and 40kHz. Luckylight also offers infrared receivers with carrier frequency up to 56kHz. The transmission distance can range from 8m to 30m.
Infrared receivers are used in a variety of applications including Air Conditioners, Fans, Heaters, TVs, DVDs, Set-top boxes, Computers and peripherals, Industrial automation, Remote control toys, Communications Equipment, Photographic Equipment, business machines, Automotive electronics, lighting and other fields.
