Infra Red Remote Control Extender
Circuit : Andy Collinson
Email: anc@mitedu.freeserve.co.uk

This circuit is used to relay signals from an Infra Red remote control in one room to an IR controlled appliance in another room.

I have seen these devices advertised in magazines, they sell for around £40-£50 and use radio to transmit between receiver and transmitter. This version costs under £5 to make and uses a cable connection between receiver and transmitter. For example, if you have a bedroom TV set that is wired to the video or satellite in another room, then you can change channels on the remote satellite receiver using this circuit. The idea is that you take your remote control with you, aim at the IR remote control extender which is in the same room, and this will relay the IR signal and control the remote appliance for you. The circuit is displayed below:

Parts List:
1 SFH2030 Photodiode
1 TIL38 IR emitting diode
1 5mm Red LED
2 4.7M 1/4W resistors
1 1k 1/4W resistor
1 2.2k 1/4W resistor
1 27ohm 1/2W resistor
1 BC337 transistor
1 CA3140 MOSFET opamp
The CA31340 is available in the US from Electronix Express, part number N103140.

Circuit Advantages
The advantage of this design against similar designs is that there are no adjustments to make or set-up procedures. However care should be taken to avoid ambient light reaching the photodiode. A dayligt filter type (black in colour) is recommended. Bellwire or speaker cable may be used to remotely site the IR emitting diode, since this design uses low output impedance and will not pick up noise. Some systems require coaxial cable which is expensive and bulky. The wireless variety of remote control extenders need two power supplies, here one is used and being radio are inevitably EM noise pollution. A visual indication of the unit receiving an Infra Red signal is provided by LED1. This is an ordinary coloured LED, I used orange but any colour will do. You will see LED1 flash at a rate of 4 - 40Hz when a remote control button is pressed. LED0 is an Infra Red Emitter Diode, this is remotely wired in the room with the appliance to be controlled. I used the type SFH487 which has a peak wavelength of 880nm. This is available in the UK from Maplin Electronics, order code CY88V. Most IR remote controls operate at slightly different wavelengths, between the range of 850 - 950nm. If you cannot obtain the SFH487 then any IR emitter diode that has an output in the above range should work.

About IR Remote Controls
As previously stated IR remote controls use wavelengths between 850 - 950nm. At this short wavelength, the light is invisible to the human eye, but a domestic camcorder can actually view this portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Viewed with a camcorder, an IR LED appears to change brightness. All remote controls use an encoded series of pulses, of which there are thousands of combinations. The light output intensity varies with each remote control, remotes working at 4.5V dc generally will provide a stronger light output than a 3V dc control. Also, as the photodiode in this project has a peak light response at 850nm, it will receive a stronger signal from controls operating closer to this wavelength. The photodiode will actually respond to IR wavelengths from 400nm to 1100nm, so all remote controls should be compatible.

Circuit Description
The receiver is built around a silicon photodiode, the SFH2030 available from Maplin, order code CY90X. This photodiode is very sensitive and will respond to a wide spectral range of IR frequencies. There is a small amount of infra red in direct sunlight, so make sure that the diode does not pick up direct sunlight. If this happens, LED1 will be constantly lit. There is a version of the SFH2030 that has a daylight filter built in, the SFH2030F order code CY91Y. A TIL100 will also give good results here. A photodiode produces minute pulses of current when exposed to infra red radiation. This current (around 1uA with the SFH2030 and a typical IR control used at a distance of 1 meter) is amplified by the CA3140 opamp. The opamp is configured as a current to voltage convertor, producing an output of about 4.7 volts per uA of input current. The photodiode, can be placed up to a meter or so away from the circuit.

Summary: Infrared signals are commonly used to transmit information between phototransmitters and photoreceivers. In this lab, a photodiode and Low Cost National Instruments USB DAQ are used to detect the presence of an infrared signal. The IR Remote Control lab is designed as a labratory or at-home experiment.

IR Remote Control Using National Instruments Low Cost Data Acquisition
Have you ever wondered how a typical remote control works? When the user presses a button on the remote, an infrared signal is transmitted across the room and detected by a sensor called a photodetector. You will create a remote control of your own in this exercise.

In this lab, you will use a standard universal remote control to transmit an infrared signal several feet. A detection circuit will then be constructed using a specific type of photoreceiver known as a photodiode. Next, a Low Cost USB DAQ device will be used to digitize the infrared signal. Finally, this digitized signal will be analyzed using LabVIEW software to control the popular iTunes application with the help of ActiveX controls.

Pre-Lab Assignment
1) Why can’t humans see the infrared light coming out of a remote control? Look online or in a textbook to find the wavelengths of the visible light spectrum as well as the wavelengths of the infrared light spectrum.

2) Write a short summary about how the photodiode works. You should be able to find a variety of sources online; cite them in your response.

3) Search Google for “infrared photodiode datasheet」 and see what you can find. What specifications are common for photodiodes? Verify that the photodiode detection range is within the infrared spectrum.

4) To generate the infrared signal, your remote control contains an infrared LED. Find an infrared LED datasheet online. What specifications do you see? Verify that the infrared LED emission range is within the infrared spectrum.

5) Become familiar with the National Instruments USB 6008 and 6009 data acquisition devices. These datasheets are available at www.China-low-cost-PCB.org.......ni...

Infrared signals are very similar to visible light, except they occupy a section of the electromagnetic spectrum that makes them invisible to the human eye. In scientific terms, the infrared spectrum contains wavelengths ranging from approximately 1.0 mm to 0.7 um. It is convenient to use infrared signals for remote control transmission, because their reception is not strongly affected by the amount of ambient light present at the photodetector.

One common method of converting an infrared remote control signal (0.7 – 0.9 um wavelength) into an electrical signal is using an infrared photodiode. In addition, another method is using a phototransistor. For this laboratory exercise, we will focus on an infrared photodiode transducer similar to the one shown below:Infrared circuits for remote control
Infrared remote controls are using a 32-56 kHz modulated square wave for communication. These circuits are used to transmit a 1-4 kHz digital signal (OOK modulation) through infra light (this is the maximum attainable speed, 1000-4000 bits per sec). The transmitter oscillator runs with adjustable frequency in the 32-56kHz range, and is being turned ON/OFF with the modulating signal, a TTL voltage on the MOD input. On the receiver side a photodiode takes up the signal. The integrated circuit inside the chip is sensitive only around a specified frequency in the 32-56 kHz range. The output is the demodulated digital input (but usually inverted), just what we used to drive the transmitter. When the carrier is present, this output is usually low. When no carrier is detected, the output is usually high.

Stefan Ovidiu writes that if you'd need a low power device, replace the NE555 IC with an ICM7555 (the CMOS equivalent of 555) or use a quad NAND CD4011 to build a gated oscillator.

Q: I need 2 IR receivers & transmitters that don't affect each other (for example a remote control for a PANASONIC TV & a SONY TV) and work separately.

A: Please check my codec page @ http://jap.hu/electronic/codec.html You can use the 555 transmitter and the IC receivers with them. If you don't have the expertise in PIC programming to modify the code to suit your needs, you can consider the MC145026-8 IC-s. Check the datasheets and you can build transmitters & receivers with unique ID-s, so you can match them to each other.
