Light Sensor

Detect ambient light with the Modern Robotics Light Sensor! Small changes are detectable in light and dark environments.
SKU: 45-2015
$24.95

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.

Sensor Type: Three Wire Analog Sensor

Dimensions: 32 x 32 x 12 millimeters

Mounting Holes: 24 x 24 millimeters

Power: 5 volts DC, 20 mA max.

Signal Logic Levels: Analog 0 – 5 volts
