iR5 IR Driver Interface

The iR5 is a specialized interface for up to five infrared sensor beams. This module has built-in power and logical connections to drive external IR sensors and sends TTL events whenever the subject crosses the beam, without the need for any external signal processing.

  • Manual trigger buttons for each IR port simplify testing and debugging
  • Status lights for each IR beam monitor subject movement during sessions.

See the Hardware Manual for information on iR5 technical specifications.
