Sharp GP2Y0D810 enable

Hi, I am trying to be able to turn on and off the sharp digital sensor. I read that I can cut the traces on the back to and solder a cable for the enable pin. Could you give more more precise info and directions. Thank you.


If you want to be able to disable the sensor, first, you need to to cut the trace that connects the enable line to Vcc on the PCB. This trace is marked on the silkscreen, and there is a caret that indicates where we suggest you make the cut. Then you can solder a wire to the pad labeled “enable”.
