  • Selectable detection modes: infrared mode, full spectrum mode, and human visible mode
  • High resolution: 16 Bit digital output at 400 kHz I2C Fast Mode
  • Wide dynamic range: 0.1 40,000 LUX
  • Wide operating temperature range: 40 C to 85 C
  • Programmable interrupt function with User Defined Upper and lower threshold settings
  • This module is based on the I2C light to digital converter TSL2561 to transform light intensity to a digital signal and can be used to measure the change in light intensity for various applications.

    The TSL2561 is controlled and monitored by sixteen registers three are reserved and a command register accessed through the serial interface. These registers provide for a variety of control functions and can be read to determine the results of the ADC conversions.

    Different from the traditional analog light sensor, as Grove Light Sensor, this digital module features a selectable light spectrum range due to its dual light sensitive diodes: infrared and full spectrum. You can switch between three detection modes to take your readings.

    They are infrared mode, full spectrum, and human visible mode. When running under the human visible mode, this sensor will give you readings just close to your eye feelings.

    With its high resolution and wide operating temperature range, you can use it to measure the change in light intensity in various light situations with many popular microcontrollers.
