Today I tested a new current stabilization system (purple circuit board).
The sun at the zenith, it is clear, the sensors are under direct rays (the "target" stands facing the sun).
IR diodes are narrowly focused (not 6100), the case is the same "Predators" (AK12).
Immediately exposed 100% of the IR power.
Well, what can I say ...
I'm in a pleasant shock!
Judging by the map - about 200 m.
Let me remind you - the bright sun and direct rays on the sensors.
And powered by one lithium can, without voltage converters.
I'm satisfied with the result.
Why can not I explain this difference, all my theories do not work.
Can it be banal IR diode is better exposed (adjusted)?
Can constructive "vices" of the old scheme.
In this case, if you set the IR radiation power 3%, then there are no reflections from the walls, and you have to aim at a separate sensor. Immediately two sensors can not be hit.
To "fix" the result I plan to make even "purple" boards and put in the second "Predator" and again to test.
Thanks again comrade duaneb
If not for his printed circuit boards, all this would be dragged on for months ...
And now we have a working hardware - can publish the hardware release .
