Gp2y0a60szlf

#1

Hello there,

Might sound very silly question but I do have it: When connecting the GP2Y0A60SZLF sharp distance sensor to an arduino do I need to connect the En pin too? Or it can be let free?
From a description found " EN – can be driven low to disable the IR emitter and put the sensor into a low-current stand-by mode. This pin is pulled high on the carrier board through a 10 kΩ pull-up resistor to enable the sensor by default." I understand that might not need to be connected and the sensors is working well.

Please let me know

Hello.

You do not need to connect the EN pin for the sensors to operate normally, only if you want to disable the sensor.
