Product Description

Easily sense light levels with this TSL2561 Ambient Light Intensity Sensor Breakout Board from Tronixlabs Australia. Features include:

  • On Board 5V-3.3V LDO, supports 5V power supply
  • The TSL2561 Luminosity Sensor Breakout is a sophisticated light sensor which has a flat response across most of the visible spectrum.
  • Unlike simpler sensors, the TSL2561 measures both infrared and visible light to better approximate the response of the human eye.
  • And because the TSL2561 is an integrating sensor (it soaks up light for a predetermined amount of time), it is capable of measuring both small and large amounts of light by changing the integration time.
  • The TSL2561 is capable of direct I2C communication and is able to conduct specific light ranges from 0.1 – 40k+ Lux easily.
  • Additionally, the TSL12561 contains two integrating analog-to-digital converters (ADC) that integrate currents from two photodiodes, simultaneously. The built in ADC means you can use this with any microcontroller, even if it doesn’t have analog inputs.
  • The current draw is extremely low, so its great for low power data-logging systems. about 0.5mA when actively sensing, and less than 15 uA when in powerdown mode.

Note! Board can operate from 5V (connect to Vin) however logic (the I2C bus) operates at 3.3V. If your board can deal with 3.3V I2C - great, otherwise order this board instead which has full level-shifting
