Target version:v2.0 Shepard Test Stand - Prototype Estimated time:3.00 hours


There are both 3.3 volt and 5 volt versions of the MLX non-contact IR sensor we're using. We currently have the 3.3 volt version for Shepard v1.1. We need to switch to the 5 volt version so that it and the load cell can be on a common voltage.

I've swapped this sensor out for the 3.3 volt version in a breadboarded circuit, and they work the same. Only the supply voltage is different, as I expected. I need to build a complete sensor setup to send to J for QA testing to be sure it works properly in live testing though.
