Description

Note: This sensor will EOL soon, please consider the new version Grove - I2C color sensor V2.



The video shows how to recognize different colors with the sensor and then to drive the lamp lighting in blue, green, yellow, orange and red accordingly.


This module is based on the color sensor TCS3414CS with digital output I2C. Based on the 8*2 array of filtered photodiodes and 16-bits analog-to-digital converters, you can gain the color chromaticity of ambient light or the color of objects. Of the 16 photodiodes, 4 have red filters, 4 have green filters, 4 have blue filters and 4 have no filter(clear). With the synchronization input pin, external pulsed light source can provides precise synchronous conversion control.

 

Features

  • Grove compatible interface

  • 16-Bit digital output with I 2C at 400 kHz

  • SYNC Input Synchronizes Integration Cycle to Modulated Light Sources

  • Operating temperature range -40°C to 85°C

  • Programmable interrupt function with User-Defined Upper and lower threshold settings

Hi~It seems difficult to work in 15~20cm,This sensor will be out-of-true when you work in a long detection distance.I suggest that this color sensor work in less than 5cm.have a happy day~

What is the black ring for? Is it simply there for light shielding and spacing or is it meant for screwing in lenses or cuvets?

The wiki suggests that the built-in white LED can be deactivated for use with an external light source. However, I cannot determine how this can be done. Can you explain how to do this?

There is a switch SW1 on the board. You can toggle it to make the LED on or off. So if you want to use external light source,just turn the on board led off.
