Re: Loooong distance IR detection, and IR collimation
Just replace the LED with a narrow-beam LED. LEDs actually have
a beam width of about 2 degrees. They're usually housed in a
case with a diffusing lens to broaden the beam. But you can
get LEDs without the diffuser.
If you need a really narrow beam, get a laser diode.
