Analog Ultra Violet Light Sensor Module for 5v Microcontrollers
This is a simple and effective Ultra Violet Sensor, used for detecting UV rating in a greenhouse or around your garden! The voltage read from this device may seem a little weak, however the board comes with an op-amp to help boost the signal for the microcontroller to understand.
This sensor is easy to plug into any Arduino Uno using analog pin and two for power. You can run the analog read code and set conditions to indicate the UV level. This sensor will read any wavelength from 200-370nm. This board has a center hole allowing users to mount this sensor onto any frame using a M3 screw.
Depending on the voltage read at the out it will correspond to the following UX index. UV1(227mV) UV2(318mV) UV3(408) UV4(503) UV5(606) UV6(696) UV7(795) UV8(881) UV9(976) UV10(1170)
