New Sharp GP2Y0A60SZ0F compact distance sensor

Postby RiO » Thu Oct 29, 2009 1:09 pm

Sharp just came out with new compact analog distance sensor. It is half of the previous ones size (22 x 8 x 7.2 mm), and has 10 to 150 cm range.
Would you please consider carrying those?

Hey,

Thanks for pointing those out; we'll be sure to put in an order soon. If these are anything like their other sensors, though, lead times are going to be 20 weeks or more.

I spotted a data sheet at http://www.dema.net/pdf/sharp/GP2Y0A60SZ0F.pdf
The connection is more complex than in case of their analog rangefinders.
Would be nice if someone (Pololu?) develops a carrier board.
Has anyone seen GP2Y0A60SZ0F on sale yet?

Thanks for following up on this. We have been trying to get more information from Sharp about these sensors, but they have generally discontinued their distance sensors, at least in the US, and it's been difficult getting any information from them. Having a datasheet should help.

Hello.

Nothing came of this the when we originally looked into it a few years ago, but we will look into it again (thank you for the reminder). This is certainly an interesting sensor!

The GP2Y0A60SZ0F sensor is now available. Digikey has about 1500 of them. See http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?mpart=GP2Y0A60SZ0F
I attach datasheet here.

I also suggest to carry GP2Y0D340K - a popular compact 40cm digital sensor. It is somewhat noisy, so a clever carrying board would help.

Interestingly, Sharp’s current catalogue does not list these two sensors any longer. Are they not in demand in other applications or they are preparing to introduce something new?
