This is a color sensor module based on TCS34725, will output RGB data and light intensity through the I2C interface. Its advantages include high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, accurate measuring, etc.
Waveshare sensor allowing to detect the colours of light. It is based on the sensor TCS34725. It has the LED backlight and a built-in IR filter. It can work with any microcontroller equipped with I2C interface. It runs with the voltage from 3.3 V to 5 V.
Sensor, enabling the detection of colors from the RGB palette, equipped with a built-in IR filter that blocks unwanted components in the range of infrared radiation. To work with the sensor, applied was controlled through the transistor LED indicator, whose task is to illuminate the detected surface.
TCS34725 is used for color sensing. TCS34725 is an I2C bus-based color light-todigital converter with IR filter, provides a digital return of red, green , blue (RGB) and clear light sensing values. The high sensitivity, wide dynamic range and IR blocking filter make the TCS34725 an ideal color sensor solution for use under varying lighting conditions and through attenuating materials.
