Instead of cutting that sensor in half, try using it like a laser beam sensor...attach a small mirror to the other side of the goal, aim the sensor at the mirror and then detect when the ball breaks the beam. Might work.
eh...I just looked at the datasheet. Distance to reflector needs to be about 14mm or less. If you cut it in half, you'd get about 28mm, just over an inch, probably not enough...
Unless... the ball is shiny enough to reflect back to the sensor. You could put a sensor on each side of the goal. I don't think you can know what works until you try it.
Wow! I haven't half your knowledge or talent, and then I see your poor soldering iron. Like Michelangelo painting with toothpicks, while I have the best boar bristle brushes but can't paint a stick figure.
Please tell us how you made that board! I know it's probably simple to you, but out of my understanding atm. I'm guessing you could just post a link...
Are those cross-braces in the first pic? To hold it steady while you ????
What is the metal sheet for in the second pic? Soldering?
What did you coat the traces with in the third pic?
Bottom left of page, it says contact Samtec for single row.
@allObjects, believe it is 16KB EEPROM, Microchips 24FC128.
My chrome seems to be broken, pressing the link button does nothing for me :(
@allObjects, your English is excellent, hence your JS must be exquisite!
