KontroLIR – the first Arduino compatible IR remote control

KontrolIR - the first  Arduino compatible IR remote control (Arduino Compatible)
KontroLIR

We are excited to announce our newest product KontroLIR – the first Arduino compatible IR remote control. Users can now design their very own Infrared remote to work exactly how they want. The possibilities are unlimited. Customize the fully featured firmware within the Arduino IDE to your own needs or just add your own signals to the pre-configured 5 device/225+ buttons. Sketches are uploaded over Serial USB I/F from the Arduino IDE – just like any other sketch. KontroLIR features an ATmega328PB, a high power emitter, an indicator LED and is powered by 2xAAA alkaline batteries. Low power operation is already implemented with ~1uAmp idle current for long battery life. Available options include IR Receiver, IR Learner, 16 to 256KBytes I2c EEPROM and a serial USB adapter for uploading your sketch from the IDE. KontroLIR supports IRremote, IRLIB and is tightly integrated with our own AnalysIR Application.

IR Signal Plotter for IRremote & Arduino

We are delighted to present here a new sketch which implements a basic IR Signal plotter for IRremote. The sketch runs on an Arduino and makes use of the Serial Plotter feature of the Arduino IDE. Although there is no comparison to our powerful AnalysIR application, it may prove useful for beginners to get a quick overview of the shape of their IR remote signals.

Identifying TSAL6100, TSAL6200 & TSAL6400 IR LEDs

Identifying TSAL6x00 differences

Anyone working regularly with IR emitters will eventually come across a situation where they cannot distinguish between similar LEDs of different angles. Here we present one method of Identifying TSAL6100, TSAL6200 and TSAL6400 IR LEDs, based in part on the manufacturing processes used to generate the different angles.
