Simple test target
This device is a simple sensor modulated IR broadcast. Its construction is very easy if a universal PCB is used. It can also be built by loosely bonding components.
The principle of the device lies in the fact that the LED goes out for a short moment when capturing the modulated IR signal.
It is suitable for testing and setting of radiators and sight for Lasertag weapons. You can also test the range, which can be slightly larger. The device indicates an intervention even if the message is incomplete. The effect has both design and assembly, when the receiver is shielded against the sky, the sun increases its sensitivity. It is fired in a direct direction when the receiver has the highest sensitivity.

Calculation of resistance for LEDs
R = (Vs-Vf)/If
(3-2)/0.025 = 40…. 47 Ω Standard Resistor
In case of using other LEDs it is necessary to calculate the correct value of R1 resistance.
