GY-530 VL53L0X Laser Ranging Sensor Time-of-Flight

#1 Post by Patou » 09 Feb 2019, 00:05

Hello,
There is a new i2c sensor to mesure distances : GY-530 VL53L0X Laser Ranging Sensor Time-of-Flight
https://www.aliexpress.com/premium/gy-5 ... ckPrompt=1
Specifications:
Infrared distance measurement module
Model: GY - VL53L0X
Using the chip: VL53L0X
Power supply: 2.8 to 5V
Ranging time: <30ms
Operating mode: Power consumption 20mW
Standby power consumption: 5μA
Distance: <2 meters
Communication: the IIC communication protocol (fully compatible with 3-5 v system)
PCB size: about 13.3x10.5mm/0.51"x0.43
"

Looks very interesting compare to HC-SR04 works on i2c bus no dedicated input for this device laser based and not ultrasonic
For the good C+ programmers is there big work to adapt the lux BH 1750 plug-in for this laser distance ?

It maybe new for you, but the plugin for it in the repository since 2017: :)

Hello again,
I do not find a binary file with this plugin included and I am quiet new in compiling and build up binary files
I am currently using : ESP_Easy_mega-20190110_test_core_250_beta_ESP8266_4096.bin
2 Questions :
Is there somewhere a tutorial how to compile and add plugin in binary this will make me more clever ?
Or Do you have a ready made binary file including this plugin ?
I am still leaning ...

30+ ESP units for production and test. Ranging from control of heating equipment, flow sensing, floor temp sensing, energy calculation, floor thermostat, water usage, to an interactive "fun box" for my grandson. Mainly Wemos D1.

With PlatformIO you can build your own build from source.
Anyway, i've a binary, that contains VL53L0X plugin, attached. (however it is compiled from an older codebase, it still works)
