Types of IR transceivers
IR transceivers can be categorised by size, speed, supply and voltage. The maximum idle current available is 10A, while the most common size for an IR transceiver is 1 metre with some being as small-scale as 875nm (nanometre) or as wide-ranging as 6.5 metres.
What are IR transceivers used for?
IR transceivers are generally used in communications devices, such as mobile phones. They can also be used for entering and collecting data in the field. A researcher using a handheld IR transceiver, for instance, can collect data on their portable device and then send it to a PC using an infrared transceiver.
