* Collector Current - Continuous (IC) of at least 100mA
* Minimum DC Current Gain (hFE(min)) of 100

Arduino Wiring:

See Hardware\Schematic.pdf for wiring information.

Arduino Programming:

1) Copy IRremote and LazerTagIr to the libraries folder of the Arduino IDE
2) Launch the Arduino IDE
3) Open Arduino\Sketches\Relay\Relay.ino
5) Under Tools->Board, select Arduino UNO (or appropriate)
6) Connect your Arduino
7) Under Tools->Serial Port, select the USB serial port to which your Arduino is connected
8) Click Upload
You can’t perform that action at this time.
