ToF Sensor cover

by dimberman on Thu Aug 13, 2020 9:59 pm

Hi all,

I'm designing an enclosure which uses the VL 6180X ToF sensor. Since the enclosure will be used outdoors I need to keep the sensor protected. I've tried testing it using 1.5mm Acrylic (PMMA) as a cover for the sensor, but the sensor is picking up the Acrylic even when its set to ignore close objects.

If anyone has experience designing a cover over the sensor I'd appreciate any input or advice you could share as I haven't found any design guidelines for the sensor.

Thanks!

The application note from ST has a section on using a cover glass: https://www.st.com/content/ccc/resource ... 122600.pdf
