Introduction: IR Remote Tester Module Which Can Check Whether an Ir Remote Is Working or Not

CONSTRUCT THIS PROJECT UNDER 0.5 $ LINK FOR PARTS GIVEN BELOW:

IR (INFRARED) REMOTE TESTER MODULE IS A GREAT TOOL THAT HELP US TO CHECK WHETHER AN IR REMOTE IS WORKING OR NOT, WHENEVER AN IR REMOTE IS AIMED AT THE CIRCUIT AND ANY BUTTON IS PRESSED ,THEN THE BLINKING OF LED WILL INDICATE THAT THE REMOTE IS WORKING , IT IS RELIABLE & EASY TO BUILD.ONE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THE CIRCUIT WHICH I MADE , IS THAT IT USES A VS1838B IR RECEIVER BUT OF YOU ARE USING A TSOP SERIES IR RECEIVER THEN REFER TO THE PIN DATA SHEET AND MAKE THE CONNECTIONS ACCORDINGLY.

Step 1: MATERIALS AND TOOLS REQUIRED

LIST OF PARTS:

1 X VS1838B IR RECEIVER (OR ANY OTHER IR RECEIVER)

1 X LED ( I USED AN 8 MM LED)

1 X BATTERY ( I USED A 3.7 V LITHIUM ION BATTERY)

LIST OF TOOLS AND OTHER PARTS:

A BREADBOARD

SOME JUMPER WIRES

A SOLDERING IRON.

Step 2: HOW TO CONSTRUCT :

STEP 1 : PLACE A VS1838B IR RECEIVER ON THE BREADBOARD.

STEP 2 : PLACE A LED PARALLEL TO VS1838B IR RECEIVER (NOTE:CONNECT (+) LEAD OF LED TO Vcc PIN OF VS1838B AND (-) PIN TO OUTPUT OF VS1838B.

STEP 3 : NOW CONNECT (+) PIN OF LED TO (+) TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY AND GROUND PIN OF VS1838B TO THE (-) TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY.

NOW CIRCUIT IS COMPLETE ,TO CHECK AIM ANY IR REMOTE TO THE CIRCUIT AN PRESS ANY BUTTON ON THE REMOTE.IF THE LED BLINKS MEANS THAT YOUR REMOTE IS WORKING ELSE IT IS NOT.

I BUILD A SIMILAR CIRCUIT ON MY HOMEMADE PCB AND IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM AND HAS BECOME MORE PORTABLE ALSO.

Step 3: APPLICATION OF THIS CIRCUIT :

1.THIS CIRCUIT WILL HELP YOU TO CHECK WHETHER YOUR REMOTE IS WORKING OR NOT.

2. REPLACE THE LED ON THIS CIRCUIT AND CONNECT A LED STRIP INSTEAD AND PLACE IT BEHIND YOUR TV , WHENEVER YOU WILL PRESS ANY BUTTON ON THE REMOTE THE LED WILL LIGHT UP THEREBY GIVING A BEAUTIFUL LIGHT EFFECT.

These are really useful. Another trick that you can use is pointing the remote directly at a digital camera. This wavelength of IR light is visible to more digital cameras.
