Octopus Electronic Bricks, you can use them to build electronics projects just as easy as piling bricks. By using Octopus electronic bricks, you may connect Arduino / Freaduino compatible boards easily with various digital, analog, and I2C/Uart interfaces. These breadboard-less firm connections are prepared to extensive modules like potentiometers, sensors, relays, servos ... even buttons, just plug and play.

Octopus Hunt Sensor is a sensor based on a TCRT5000 photoelectric sensitive element. It can sensitively detect the infrared reflected signal. Together with Arduino specific sensor shield, Hunt Sensor can be widely used in many fields, ranging from performing black and white line detection, and obstacle detection, to shredding detection for a fax machine or paper shredder, meter pulse data sampling, and other related works Adjustable sensitivity (shown in blue digital potentiometer adjustment). Three pins electronic building blocks interface: input 5V - GND. S pin output digital voltage signal 0-1 Operating voltage: DC 5.0V
