This instructable will show you how to use the flame detecting module to detect if there is a flame within about 10cm of the sensor. This module can then be used in making a robot that looks for flames and then puts them out, or to automatically put out or light you favorite candle in the house at a certain time of day. Let's begin!
Step 1: What You Need!
- LinkIt ONE micro controller
- Flame detection module
- Breadboard and breadboard wires
- 5 min.
- Flame of some kind (Testing purposes)
Step 2: Wiring!
- D0 pin on the module to D3 on LinkItOne
- "+" pin on module to 5V on LinkIt ONE
- G pin on module to GND on linkIt ONE
A0 pin on module does not need to be wired to anything
Step 3: Software!
The code I uploaded will simply display in the serial monitor whether or not a flame is being detected. This code provides a simple platform that can be expanded to fit into a larger project.
Step 4: Test It Out!
You now have everything you need for your LinkIt ONE to sense a flame. Simply use a lighter or match and bring the flame towards the sensor, as it comes within about a 10cm radius of the sensor it should detect the flame! To make the flame more or less sensitive simply adjust the potentiometer on the module.
