The 80cm Infrared Proximity Sensor is a General Purpose Type Distance Measuring Sensors, this sensor takes a continuous distance reading and returns a corresponding analog voltage with a range of 10cm (4") to 80cm (30"). Can be used in TVs,personal computers ,cars and so on.
Grove interface compatible
Wide supply voltage range: 2.5V-7V
This sensor is quite small and use a tiny connector called the Japan Solderless Terminal (JST) connector. These connectors have three wires: ground, vcc, and the output. Because the sensor fire continuously and don't need any clocking to initiate a reading, it is easy to interface with any microcontroller. for the seeeduino, the wire convert the 3-wire to 4-wire ,to compatible with the twig interface of Grove .
For all Grove users (especially beginners), we provide you guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface - Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before your using of the product.

What is the sensitivity of this sensor? For example does it return voltage increments that can be read as 10cm,11cm,12cm, etc. I need a range sensor with a 1 cm resolution between 10 and 20cm for use with a Fez Spider kit via an eblock module.
Hi there, all value are in our WIKI, about voltage increment or distance you can view.
Does this product with Arduino Uno REV3?
Hi there, yes it is compatible with each other.
Is it possible to buy the cable without sensor? If it is, where?
Thanks in advance
Hi there, there is not only cable for selling now. Thanks your interesting.
