The infrared sensor was angled to meet the encoder strips. Each module provides an adjustment potentiometer to set the sensitivity of the digital output. If it is too sensitive, the device will trigger sporadically from environmental changes like stray sunlight or artificial lighting. If the equipment is not sensitive enough, it will not be able to differentiate between the dark and light strips. When properly adjusted, it will blink the onboard light, green in this case, to show that it senses the black and white bars.
Movement and encoder triggering

The remote was connected to jog one encoder bar left or right, and the HOME button would move in one direction until it encountered the HOME magnets. Jogging worked well, and at low speeds, it would track reliably.
