Key Features

  • Low power consumption
  • Small size: 2.0cm x 4.0cm Grove module
  • Only 3 pins needed, save I/O resources
  • Easy to use: Grove connector, plug and play
  • Output mode optional, support analog output and digital output


The Grove turbidity sensor can measure the turbidity of the water (the number of suspended particles).


The optical sensor of this module can measure the density of turbid water and the concentration of extraneous matter using the refraction of wavelength between photo transistor and diode. By using an optical transistor and optical diodes, an optical sensor measures the amount of light coming from the source of the light to the light receiver, in order to calculate turbidity of water.


The output mode can be selected by adjusting the switch on the board. Supports analog and digital output. The sensitivity can be adjusted by the on-board knob.

Water Quality Station using Seeeduino XIAO that detects TDS, turbidity, and water level.
Water Quality Station using Seeeduino XIAO that detects TDS, turbidity, and water level.
Water Quality is a complex concept, it related to too many parameters. Therefore constructing a water quality monitoring station is a systematic and complex project. The good news is that with the help of those 5 Grove Water Quality Sensors, you can build your own lightweight water quality monitoring station easily.
