Module from the Grove series, allowing you to make the function to determine the color of ambient light. Applied sensor BH1745 with a LED backlight and a built-in IR filter. The sensor detects the color red, blue, green, and measures the light intensity in the range from 0.005 Lux or 40,000 Lux. It communicates via the I2C bus. It works with a supply voltage from 3.3 V to 5 V.
The product is compatible with Raspberry
Sample code and detailed information can be found in the user guide.
The sensor works with any microcontroller that is equipped with I2C interface, including Arduino. It has Pimoroni connector that allows the direct connection to Raspberry Pi or the use of Garden HAT shield.
The Board has 5 pins for self-assembly of goldpin connectors, 2.54 mm pitch (included).
