This module is based on the I2C light-to-digital converter "TSL2561" to transform light intensity into a digital signal. Different from traditional analog light sensor (Grove - Light Sensor), this digital module features a selectable light spectrum rangewhich is possible due to its dual light sensitive diodes: infrared and full spectrum. 

You are able to switch between three detection modes to take your readings. These modes are as follows: infrared mode, full spectrum and human visible mode. When running under the human visible mode, this sensor will give you readings just close to your eye feelings.


  • Selectable detection modes
  • high resolution 16-Bit digital output at 400 kHz I2C Fast-Mode
  • Wide dynamic range: 0.1 - 40,000 LUX
  • Wide operating temperature range: -40°C to 85°C
  • Programmable interrupt function with User-Defined Upper and lower threshold settings
