iRn IR Driver Interface

The iR5 and iR10 are specialized interfaces for infrared sensor beams. These modules have built-in power and logical connections to drive external IR sensors and send 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 iRn technical specifications.
