Capacitive Touch Sensor - Toggle
Capacitive Touch Sensor - Toggle - Are you tired with clicking mechanic button? Try our capacitive touch sensor. Right now we can find touch sensor on most electronic device. So upgrade your Arduino project with our new version touch sensor and make it cool! This little sensor can "feel" people and metal touch and feedback a high/low voltage level. Even isolated by some cloth and paper, it still can feel the touch. And the sensitivity will decrease as isolation get thick. For toggle touch module, its output changes every time human touch detected
The simplest method to make a project using a single "toggle" capacitive touch sensor is with this breakout board. Simply power the sensor with 1.8 to 5.5VDC and touch the pad to activate it; no microcontroller is needed.
This sensor has a toggle output—it can be touched on and off. This means that the red LED will alternately turn out and the output pin will go high or low in response to the detection of a capacitive load, such as when a human touches the sensor-pad region. This sensor is useful for projects that call for activating something on the first touch and deactivating it on repeated touches, such as switches. If the built-in capacitive pad isn't suitable for your project, you may simply solder a wire to the center pad and make your own.
The LED may be unplugged from the output pin if you wish to conserve power (cut the trace between the jumper marked as such). This breakout was created with an endless time-out. If anything is turned on, it will ultimately turn off on its own because the chip does enable having the sensor time out. Cut the TIMER jumper and attach a resistor or capacitor to the TIME pin if you want to use this mode. To determine how to compute the TIME pin to meet your required timeout.
It also contains a completely built board as well as a short piece of 0.1" header that may be connected to allow for breadboard input. We suggest using copper foil to create extra contacts, followed by soldering a wire to the breakout from the foil pad.
Can you trick a motion sensor?
As per research, the majority of motion detectors—even more, and recent ones—use heat to identify substantial temperature changes in the area. These sensors would typically be activated by movement in a room, but using something as basic as a piece of styrofoam to cover your body may fool them.
