Cal Light Sensor

Detect ambient light with the Modern Robotics compact Cal Light Sensor! Small changes are detectable in light and dark environments.
SKU: 45-2305
$14.95
Sensor Type
Three Wire Analog Sensor
Dimensions
32 mm x 32 mm x 5 mm
Mounting Holes
24 mm x 24 mm, 4mm
Power
5 V DC, 2 mA
Signal Logic Levels
Analog 0 V - 5 V

Cable not included

The Light Sensor detects the ambient light level using a phototransistor. The value returned is a quasi-logarithmic analog value that allows the Light Sensor to be used over at least four decades of light. This means that the Light Sensor can detect small changes in light and dark environments.
