What is IR emitter?
Infrared (IR) emitters emit light in the infrared range, usually to avoid noise from other (visible) light sources. The device is often used in conjunction with a photodetector to control other devices upon interruption of light. A common application is in doors that automatically swing open when a person walks closeby or passes a gate. In this application, an emitter passes an infrared beam, which is detected by a phototransistor. When a person walks by, the beam is ""broken."" Now that the phototransistor no longer detects infrared light, another event is triggered: the door opens.
