Description

Summer is coming, want to make a UV detector to know the UV index when you are under the sun? Grove - Sunlight Sensor is recommend here.


Grove - Sunlight Sensor is a multi-channel digital light sensor, which has the ability to detect UV-light, visible light and infrared light.


This device is based on SI1145, a new sensor from SiLabs. The Si1145 is a low-power, reflectance-based, infrared proximity, UV index and ambient light sensor with I2C digital interface and programmable-event interrupt output. This device offers excellent performance under a wide dynamic range and a variety of light sources including direct sunlight.


Grove - Sunlight Sensor include an on-bard Grove connector, which help you to connect it your Arduino easily. You can use this device for making some project which need to detect the light, such as a simple UV detector.

Hello, yes you can. You need a software I2C because you can't connect 3 modules in one I2C bus. About software I2C please refer to https://github.com/loovee/Arduino_SoftI2C

Hi there, We only have this version this moment. You can remove the connector and solder the cable directly to the 4 pads as temporary solution. thanks.

What is the maximum cable length I can use from the sensor to the board?

Hi, there~this sensor is used I2C to transmit signal,but there is no clear transmission distance specified on the standard. However, the distance of I2C transmission should depend on the stability of the signal, and the stability is determined by factors such as bus load, transmission speed, bus capacitance, and even external interference. Therefore, there may be a problem of changing the communication distance of 5 meters or adding a device. The main thing is to find a way to solve the problem: 1. If it is the actual application, it is necessary to ensure the rising edge and falling edge of the transmission waveform, and the high and low levels can meet the specified requirements to eliminate the influence of the line length. 2. If you only choose the design when designing, the answer above is 25 feet (more than 7 meters). I have used 2 meters in length (normal fine line, in a laboratory environment)
