PPA – Infrared Photogate Sensor (IRPS) design

An IRPS is required to provide ball position timings, so that the Arduino can precisely calculate the timing of a high power pulse to the electromagnet. The general concept of a photogate is that infrared light shines from a LED (transmitter) to a Phototransistor (receiver) all the time, except when the ball is travelling through and […]
