This IR Ball can be detected by the IR Seeker and IR Locator to create a great game of robot soccer or simply use it as an IR beacon.
SKU: IRB1005
$79.95
$49.00

The Infrared Electronic Ball, with four operating modes, is perfect for playing robot soccer or for as an infrared beacon for your robot to find. The well-balanced ball contains 20 infrared LEDs giving full signal coverage. The IRB1005 can also be switched to operate in un-modulated (no pulse) mode, or trapezoidal mode as used with Robocup Jr competitions, or one of two modes, 1200Hz and 600Hz, provide added flexibility. Detection ranges up to 5 meters or more (15+ feet). The pulse-modulated IR signals make the Infrared Electronic Ball easier to detect in difficult background lighting conditions. The pulsed modes increase usable range and battery life. A perfect companion for the IR Seeker with its selectable modes tuned to the IRBall signals. The IRB1005 is 75mm (~ 3 inches) in diameter and requires 4 AAA batteries (not included).

HiTechnic NXT IRSeeker V2

Play robot soccer and zero in on your infrared (IR) beacons with the new and enhanced IRSeeker V2 (Version 2). You can use most TV remotes and LEGO® Power Functions remotes as beacons that the IRSeeker V2 will detect. With a specially designed curved lens and five internal detectors, the IRSeeker V2 has a 240 degree view making it perfect for playing robot soccer with the HiTechnic IRBall. The IRSeeker V2 has enhanced modes that detect modulated IR signals, including the new RoboCup Jr stepped modulated mode, and it filters out background signals giving superior performance in brightly lit rooms and sunny locations. The sensor returns the signal direction and strength making it easy to locate and gauge the relative distance to the target.
