As an updated version of Grove - Light Sensor 1.0, the Grove - Light Sensor v1.2 is also aimed at measuring light levels, however with higher reliability and sensibility. It is an analog module and output various electrical signals which can be converted to different ranges (It depends on the Analog-to-Digital-Converter on your controller board. For example, it can output 0-255 for an 8-bit ADC). It integrates a high-sensitive and reliable phototriode, and just like other grove modules, it is interfaced with Grove port which can save you a lot work in wiring.


  • Easy to use since it is interfaced with Grove port.

  • High reliability and sensibility.

  • Small footprint

  • Recognize wider spectrum.

Grove - Light Sensor

The Grove - Light sensor integrates a photo-resistor(light dependent resistor) to detect the intensity of light. The resistance of photo-resistor decreases when the intensity of light increases. A dual OpAmp chip LM358 on board produces voltage correspond

  • Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:21:03

    Hi, I've bought this sensor. I'm reading the analog values of the sensor and the max read is 738. Is it possible to have a table where you map analog values with lux? Because at the following link I did not find anything about it Regards
