photo sensor
« on: September 30, 2009, 04:22:36 PM »
Hi
I need a help with a photo sensor, I got one of the light sensor detectors (Maxxima-MLS-10), but I need to reverse the way it works, I need it  when sensor detects light in room LED light is goes up and when it’s dark in room LED light not working. Anybody knows how to do that. Please let me know. 
Thank You

Hi,

Yes, flick a switch ;D

If you've allready got one, you should either read the user guide or look at the on/off switch, which according to the page you linked to (under "Product Features") has got a 4 Position Switch: ON/OFF/OS Sensor/NightLight.

Set it to Nightlight and it will light when movement is detected - I assume that's what you meant, because if you really want a light detector, you have bought a paperweight.

This is a movement detector reacting to body heat moving around in front of it.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
