Module with UV sensor adding the ability to detect UV light to any microcontroller. It communicates through an I2C interface. The spectral frequency range is from 320 nm to 410 nm. The supply voltage is from 3.3 V to 5 V. The kit includes a cable adapted to SeeedstudioBase Shield v2.0
Unlike the moduleSi1145, VEML6070 do not give readingsto UV index. It has a light sensor operating in the UV spectrum. It is equipped with a simple I2C interface, thus, it can run on microcontrollers with a small performance.
The sensor has 5 pins working with voltage from 3.3 V to 5 V. It is communicating with each microcontroller equipped with the I2C bus.
|GND||The ground of the system.|
|VCC||Supply voltage: from 3.3 V to 5.5 V.|
|SDA||The data line of the I2C bus.|
|SCL||Clock line of the I2C bus.|
|ACH||Interrupt output - the low status by default. It warns about too high or low UV signal.|
