Luminosity Sensor Breakout - TSL2561
What is the TSL2561 Luminosity Sensor Breakout mainly about? What are the characteristics it has? And the functions it provides? Okay so it’s a very complex, fascinating light sensor that has a flat response regarding almost the majority of the visible spectrum, what makes it very special and different that other simpler sensors is that the TSL2561 which is an integrated sensor is capable of measuring infrared light as well as visible light in a much better, and clearer way that is very approximated and close to how the human eye works and sees things, also, it can be used for both small and large amounts of light.
The light that this sensor is capable of conducting could range from 0.1 - 40k+ Lux, and the direct I2C communication is makes is unbelievably awesome. Not to forget that this TSL12561 contains 2 analog to digital convertors which is able to integrate currents took from 2 photodiodes, and last but not least, a voltage having 3V and low supply of current max of 0.6mA is required and should be supplied.
Available in Dubai, UAE, Oman, and Qatar.
