The product is compatible with Arduino

Check how to connect the sensor to the Arduino inour guide.
In the network are examples of projects together with the code for the Arduino users, for example,color detector.


Service and output

The module is powered with the voltage in the range of 2.7 V to 5.5 V, thanks to it, it is reliable in the systems of 3.3 V and 5 V. The sensor can be connected to any commissioning set with a microcontroller that has a timer with the frequency input, for example,STM32DiscoveryorArduino.

The output is a signal with a frequency that depends on the light intensity of the color selected by the pins S2 and S3.

Detailed description of the pins is available in the arrays in the further part of the description. Pins are the popular goldpin connectors, allowing for the connection of the sensor with the main module using theconnecting cables.

Using the configuration inputsS0andS1, selected is prescaler (divider) of the output frequency signal thanks to which we can adjust the frequency range for the used microcontroller. InputsS2andS3are used to selectthe type of measuring photodiode: red, green, blue or clear options, that is without filtering (all RGB components will be measured simultaneously).
