These lightweight aluminum brackets make it easy to mount and integrate the Sharp GP2Y0A02, GP2Y0A21, and GP2Y0A41 Distance Sensors into your project.
The brackets are strong enough to hold their position, but they can also be bent by hand to different angles if the application calls for it. These brackets, which allow for a tall and slender perpendicular sensor orientation, are sold in pairs, and four M3 screws and nuts are included for securing sensors to the brackets.
These lightweight brackets are made from 0.8mm-thick aluminum and are specifically designed to work with Sharp’s analog GP2Y0A02, GP2Y0A21, and GP2Y0A41 distance sensors. Three versions are available: compact perpendicular and parallel versions, and a slightly larger but more versatile multi-option version that allows for mounting the sensor in either orientation along with greater flexibility in sensor placement relative to the mounting surface.
The brackets are strong enough to hold their default 90° bend, but they can be bent by hand to different angles if the application calls for it.
The brackets are sold in pairs, and four M3×5mm screws and nuts are included (two for each bracket) for securing the sensors to the brackets. The other side of each bracket has mounting options intended for use with #4 or M3 screws.
Please note that the brackets might ship with a protective blue film that can be optionally be peeled off:
Details for the Perpendicular bracket
This compact version of the bracket allows for the sensor to be mounted in a tall and slender perpendicular orientation. For a slightly more compact solution, the sensor can also be mounted on the inside of the L-shaped bracket.
Details for the Parallel bracket
This compact version of the bracket allows for the sensor to be mounted in a low-profile parallel orientation.
Details for the Multi-Option bracket
This multi-option version of the bracket offers the versatility of mounting the sensor in either a parallel or perpendicular orientation, and the long slots provide flexibility in positioning of the bracket on the mounting surface. With the sensor in the perpendicular orientation, the slot in the other face allows for side-to-side adjustment, and with the sensor in the parallel orientation, the sensor position can be adjusted forward or backward. In both orientations, the bracket can be mounted such that the sensor extends significantly past the edge of the mounting surface of so desired.
