Ambient Light Intensity Sensor TSL2561 Breakout

  • On-Board 5V-3.3V LDO, support 5V power supply
  • The TSL2561 Luminosity Sensor Breakout is a sophisticated light sensor which has a flat response across most of the visible spectrum.
  • Unlike simpler sensors, the TSL2561 measures both infrared and visible light to better approximate the response of the human eye.
  • And because the TSL2561 is an integrating sensor (it soaks up light for a predetermined amount of time), it is capable of measuring both small and large amounts of light by changing the integration time.
  • The TSL2561 is capable of direct I2C communication and is able to conduct specific light ranges from 0.1 – 40k+ Lux easily.
  • Additionally, the TSL12561 contains two integrating analogue-to-digital converters (ADC) that integrate currents from two photodiodes, simultaneously.
  • The built-in ADC means you can use this with any microcontroller, even if it doesn’t have analogue inputs.
  • The current draw is extremely low, so it’s great for low power data-logging systems. about 0.5mA when actively sensing, and less than 15 uA when in power-down mode.
