Pimoroni Pimoroni BH1745 Luminance and Color Sensor Breakout
BH1745 Luminance and Color Sensor Breakout [PIM375]. A really sophisticated and accurate color and luminance sensor breakout that's Raspberry Pi and Arduino-compatible. As well as detecting RGB color and light level, it has added bells and whistles like 50/60Hz light noise rejection, a wide detection range, and two illumination LEDs. This type of sensor is the same as you'd find in phones, tablets, and laptops where they're used to detect ambient light temperature and adjust the color temperature of the display accordingly. The BH1745 Luminance and Color Sensor Breakout has an I2C interface and is 3.3V or 5V compatible. Like our other Pimoroni breakouts, we've designed it so that you can solder a piece of right-angle header onto it and then pop it straight onto the bottom left 5 pins on your Raspberry Pi's GPIO header (pins 1, 3, 5, 6, 9). It's also compatible with our fancy new Breakout Garden, where using breakouts is as easy just popping it into one of the six slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code. Features: BH1745 luminance and color sensor; Two white illumination LEDs; Red, green, blue, and luminance measurements; 0.005 to 40,000 lux detection range; 50/60Hz light noise rejection; IR cut filter; 16 bit data output; 3.3V or 5V compatible; I2C interface, with address select via ADDR cuttable trace (0x38 or 0x39); Reverse polarity protection; Raspberry Pi-compatible pinout (pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9); Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3B , 3, 2, B , A , Zero, and Zero W.
