Title: IR Wavelength for Guncon 3
Post by: lemmingDev on October 03, 2020, 10:07:21 pm
Hi All

Does anyone know the wavelength of IR LEDs needed for the PS3 Guncon 3 IR guns.

Regular 940nm IR LEDs that work with the Wii camera for example aren't picked up by the Guncon 3 gun, and the Wii camera doesn't pick up the Guncon 3 LED spots.

Are they regular IR LEDs with some type of filter in the housing they're in, or some non-standard wavelength?

Thanks

Did you ever find out about the IR LEDs?

A user (mabruli) over the MiSTer discord the wavelength used on the GC3.
Sharing the post here:"

"I can confirm that using LED with wavelenght = 850nm works for my guncon 3"
