I have a demo I’ve been doing where I’m using the IR receiver eblock to record IR signals, and then retransmit them using the IR LED eblock, and it works, but the range is very poor.
I don’t have a lot of experience with electronics, so I’m hoping folks might have some advice as to how to improve the range of the IR signal. I’ve tried using two IR eblocks in tandem, but that did not really seem to make a difference.
From what I’ve read, many IR emitting devices combine a wide angle and narrow angle IR LED (or LEDs) to improve the range. How hard would it be to build an IR LED eblock clone that combines multiple IR LEDs? I’m not averse to doing a little soldering, but I wanted to see if folks had suggestions or advice on choosing the right components before I start shopping.
