  • Model: VL6180X Range Finder
  • Units in Stock: 4
  • Manufactured by: Graylogix


The VL6180X (sometimes called the VL6180) is a Time of Flight distance sensor The sensor contains a very tiny laser source, and a matching sensor. The VL6180X can detect the "time of flight", or how long the laser light has taken to bounce back to the sensor. Since it uses a very narrow light source, it is good for determining distance of only the surface directly in front of it.

Technical Specifications
  • IR emitter:850nm
  • Distance:0-50cm
  • I2C address:0x29 (7-bit)
  • Ambient light sensor:0.038 to 50klux(2) 16-bit output(3)

VL6180X module is compact module. The size is: 4.8mm x 2.8mm x 1.0mm The module is equipped with I2C interface and two programmable GPIO pins. The main controller via I2C interface to control the optical module, the read distance or ambient light intensity data; and GPIO pins can be configured to achieve the threshold (threshold) applications.
