Description A.IR Shield ESP8266 TRx Wemos D1 Mini PortraitA.IR Shield The A.IR Shield ESP8266/ESP32 TRx (A.IR) is our new high-spec infrared remote control shield which operates seamlessly with AnalysIR and the Wemos D1 Mini or compatible – supporting IR send and receive. Carrier frequency measurement and reporting is also supported. By default, A.IR is supplied for use with the AnalysIR firmware. Users can also load any custom IR sketch onto A.IR using the standard Arduino IDE or even extend the existing firmware. A.IR allows makers, hobbyists and professionals record and send a large range of IR signals using quality Vishay IR components and excellent design features. A.IR provides excellent reception, range and signal quality. It can be powered directly from the Wemos D1 Mini, USB ports, or via batteries or stand-alone power supplies connected to the PCB headers. It is powered from 5v and the signalling with Wemos GPIO pins is 3V3.

What is A.IR Shield ESP8266/ESP32 TRx?
A.IR Shield ESP8266/ESP32 TRx is a high spec IR shield initially designed for use with AnalysIR, with support for custom IR sketches included.
A.IR Shield ESP8266/ESP32 TRx packs a lot more features which are covered in more details in the data sheet, and getting started guide(emailed after shipping).

A copy of the AnalysIR firmware source is supplied. You need to provide your own Wemos D1 Mini and USB micro cable, which is readily available. There is no need for additional IR receivers or emitters as they are already included on-board. As well as tight-integration with AnalysIR, it can also be driven by 3rd party applications and systems. Details of the serial/WiFi web (http POST) messaging interface syntax/protocol are available on request or can be seen from the firmware source. IR Tx range can be increased further using JP1 (x1, x2, x3+) and/or by installing a programming resistor on the PCB. This is a feature of all of our constant current IR emitter designs in the MakeIR series. See Product Sheet for more details!
By Default the shield is provided with Headers pre-soldered, without the Wemos D1 Mini module. A Wemos D1 Mini may optionally be purchased, subject to availability) with firmware pre-loaded & all headers pre-soldered. (Note: This is plug & Play with AnalysIR for serialUSB connections only, as you will need to configure your own SSID/password for WiFi and reload the firmware.)
Pay attention to the Headers required. The Shield has Male headers beneath the PCB, which insert into female headers on top of the Wemos PCB. (8 pins @ 0.1″/2.54mm pitch on each side). If you already have headers on your Wemos, then pick up one of the Double shield bases (Option D)

Develop your own Custom Applications
Although the shield was designed for use with AnalysIR you can create some interesting projects using the shield by extending the supplied firmware. For example:
In order the get the maximum benefit from the shield we strongly recommend picking up a copy of AnalysIR, which will save many hours in trying to understand & troubleshoot your IR signals.
