Principle of Work: 

 

The IR Flame Sensor Module for Arduino works by detecting the infrared light emitted by flames. The module contains an infrared receiver that is sensitive to the specific wavelengths of light emitted by flames. When a flame is present, it emits infrared light that is detected by the receiver in the module. The infrared receiver then converts the detected light into an electrical signal, which is then processed by the module's built-in comparator circuit. The comparator circuit compares the electrical signal to a set threshold, which can be adjusted using the potentiometer on the board. If the electrical signal exceeds the threshold, the comparator circuit triggers the digital output pin (D0) to go high, indicating the presence of a flame. If the electrical signal is below the threshold, the output pin remains low. The sensitivity adjustment feature allows the user to fine-tune the threshold for flame detection, making the module suitable for detecting flames at different intensities and distances.

 

Pinout of the Module:

 

  1. VCC - This is the power supply pin and should be connected to the 5V pin of the Arduino board or any other power source that provides a voltage within the module's operating range (typically 3.3V - 5V).
  2. GND - This is the ground pin and should be connected to the ground pin of the Arduino board or any other ground connection.
  3. D0 - This is the digital output pin and is used to detect the presence of a flame. When a flame is detected, the D0 pin will output a high signal (typically 3.3V - 5V), otherwise, it will output a low signal (0V).

 

Applications: 

  1. Fire detection systems: The module can be used in fire detection systems to quickly and accurately detect the presence of flames, allowing for early warning and prevention of fires.
  2. Industrial automation: The module can be used in industrial automation systems to detect flames in machinery, ensuring safe and reliable operation.
  3. Robotics: The module can be used in robotics applications to detect flames or light sources and enable the robot to react appropriately.
  4. Security systems: The module can be used in security systems to detect flames or light sources and trigger alarms or other responses.
  5. Home automation: The module can be used in home automation systems to detect flames or light sources and trigger automated responses, such as turning off appliances or turning on sprinkler systems.
  6. Environmental monitoring: The module can be used in environmental monitoring systems to detect wildfires or other natural disasters, enabling early response and mitigation.

Code:

A code for the IR Flame Sensor Module connected to an Arduino Uno on digital pin 2 and a ceramic wafer buzzer connected to pin 11 as a speaker. The code will sound an alarm on the buzzer and print the status to the serial monitor when the flame module detects a flame.

// IR Flame Sensor Module with Buzzer

int flamePin = 2; // IR Flame Sensor Module connected to digital pin 2
int buzzerPin = 11; // Ceramic Wafer Buzzer connected to digital pin 11

void setup() {
  pinMode(flamePin, INPUT); // Set flamePin as input
  pinMode(buzzerPin, OUTPUT); // Set buzzerPin as output
  Serial.begin(9600); // Start the serial communication
}

void loop() {
  int flameValue = digitalRead(flamePin); // Read the flame sensor module value

  if(flameValue == HIGH) { // If flame is detected
    Serial.println("Flame Detected!"); // Print status to the serial monitor
    digitalWrite(buzzerPin, HIGH); // Turn on the buzzer
    delay(500); // Wait for 500ms
    digitalWrite(buzzerPin, LOW); // Turn off the buzzer
    delay(500); // Wait for 500ms
  }
