Light Sensor for LilyPad - Ten Pack

$52.95
SKU 67336001

This tiny light-sensor module for LilyPad from PMD Way uses the very-reliable TEMT6000 light sensor, which gives consistent and repeatable readings even between different units - unlike cheapie light-dependent resistors, which can vary dramatically in their sensitivity.

Adapted to the human eye response, this silicon light sensor outputs a voltage proportional to incoming light. Perfect for measuring light levels both indoors and out, security sensing, and human feedback like waving a hand over the sensor.

Trivial to connect to your LilyPad or other board using an analog input, and you don't need any special drivers or libraries to use it: a simple "analogRead()" call in your sketch is all it takes.

  • +/-60° field of view
  • Supply voltage: 3.0 to 5.5VDC
