Parallax speeds the process of Propeller 2 development through our partnership with MikroE, who has created a family of 850+ Clicks for most I/O functions you may envision. For each of the Click boards stocked by Parallax, you will find a documented Spin 2 code example on our Propeller GitHub Object Exchange. Connect your Click boards to the Propeller 2 Evaluation Board or P2-EC Edge Breakout Breadboard using the #64008 P2 to MikroBus Click Adapter.
Light Ranger 4 click is an accurate distance measurement Click board™ based on a ToF (Time of Flight) measurement principle. The FlightSense™ enabled VL53L1X rangefinder module from STMicroelectronics is a complete measurement stack on the chip. It is surprisingly easy to work with, as this highly integrated range finder module exposes only I2C interface, XSH and INT pins to the host controller. It features the invisible Class1 laser emitter, used to emit a narrow band of a harmless modulated light beam in the IR range (940 nm), physical infrared filters and optics to achieve the best ranging performance in various ambient lighting conditions with a range of cover window options. It can measure distances up to 4000mm, with up to 50 Hz ranging frequency.
The device is rated as Class 1 LASER product, and it does not cause harmful eye injuries. However, it should not be pointed towards the eyes.
