VL53L1X Distance Sensor is a "Time-of-Flight" (ToF) ranging module based on the VL53L1X from ST, with accurate ranging up to 4m and fast ranging frequency up to 50 Hz. It's controlled through an I2C interface and has a low power consumption.

The VL53L1X embeds ST’s third-generation FlightSense patented technology. Compared with the second generation VL53L0X, the VL53L1X extends the ToF ranging distance up to 4m and features fast-ranging frequency up to 50 Hz.

Unlike conventional ranging sensors, the VL53L1X integrates physical infrared filters and optics. It uses ST’s latest generation ToF technology which allows absolute distance measurement whatever the target colour and reflectance, and achieves better anti-interference capability.

A 20cm PH2.0 6-pin wire is included in the package for hooking this sensor up to your microcontroller.
