GP2Y1010AU0F is a dust sensor by optical sensing system
An infrared emitting diode (IRED) and an phototransistor are diagonally arranged into this device
It detects the reflected light of dust in air.
Especially, it is effective to detect very fine particle like the cigarette smoke
In addition it can distinguish smoke from house dust by pulse pattern of output voltage
Compact, thin package (46.0 × 30.0 × 17.6 mm)
Low consumption current (Icc: MAX. 20 mA)
The presence of dust can be detected by the photometry of only one pulse
Enable to distinguish smoke from house dust
Lead-free and RoHS directive compliant
Compliant with RoHS directive (2002/95/EC)

Detection Principle

The principle is as follows, the sensor has a hole that allows air
to freely flow through the directional LED light emitted by detecting dust
refraction of light through the air after the dust to determine the content.

Use the test code:
int dustPin=0;

float dustVal=0;
int ledPower=2;
int delayTime=280;
int delayTime2=40;
float offTime=9680;
void setup(){
pinMode(dustPin, INPUT);
void loop(){
// ledPower is any digital pin on the arduino connected to Pin 3 on the sensor
if (dustVal>36.455)

Date & Air quality
3000 + = very bad
1050-3000 = Poor
300-1050 = general
150-300 = Good
75-150 = Very good
0-75 = Great
