  • Wide spectrum detection range: 280-950nm

  • Easy to use: I2C Interface(7-bit), compatible with Grove port, just plug-and-play

  • Programmable configuration: Versatile for various applications

  • Low power consumption: 3.3/5V Supply, suitable for many microcontrollers and SBCs

Description

This device is based on SI1151, a new sensor from SiLabs. The Si1151 is a low-power, reflectance-based, infrared proximity, UV index, and ambient light sensor with an 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 includes an onboard Grove connector, which helps you to connect it to your Arduino easily. You can use this device for making some projects which need to detect light, such as a simple UV detector for your Raspberry Pi weather station, or a smart irrigation system using Arduino if you need to monitor the visible spectrum.

Get Started with Industrial Sensors

SenseCAP S210x series industrial sensors provide an out-of-box experience for environmental sensing. Please refer to the S2102 Wireless Light Intensity Sensor with higher performance and robustness for light intensity detection.

Applications

  • Light detection

  • Smart irrigation system

  • DIY weather station

Upgrade to Industrial Solutions

With the SenseCAP S2110 controller and S2100 data logger, you can easily turn the Grove into a LoRaWAN® sensor. Seeed not only helps you with prototyping but also offers you the possibility to expand your project with the SenseCAP series of robust industrial sensors.

The IP66 housing, Bluetooth configuration, compatibility with the global LoRaWAN® network, built-in 19 Ah battery, and powerful support from APP make the SenseCAP S210x the best choice for industrial applications. The series includes sensors for soil moisture, air temperature and humidity, light intensity, CO2, EC, and an 8-in-1 weather station. Try the latest SenseCAP S210x for your next successful industrial project.

Note

All Grove - Sunlight sensors ship from 2022 on January 1st and are equipped with SI1151. The old version is equipped with SI1145.
