The TFmini Ranging Sensor is built on the Time-of-Flight (ToF) principle, setting new standards in accurate distance measurement. With a maximum ranging distance of 12 meters, this sensor excels in providing reliable and precise distance data. The frame rate can reach an impressive 1000Hz. This high frame rate ensures that the sensor captures fast-moving objects with exceptional fidelity, making it an ideal choice for applications that demand real-time monitoring and analysis.

The sensor's design is optimised to minimise blind zones, ensuring that it can accurately detect objects even when positioned very close to its surface. This small blind zone contributes to the sensor's versatility, enabling it to work well in scenarios where object detection in close proximity is the top priority. Consuming just 550mw of power, it gives a great balance between performance and power usage. Moreover, the sensor's low-power mode consumes less than 100mw, making it suitable for situations where energy conservation is paramount.

This combination of features positions the sensor as a standout choice for a wide range of applications, spanning robotics, automation, drones, safety systems, and more, where precise and reliable distance measurements are very important.
