The Wireless Smart Light and Colour Sensor is USB and Bluetooth compatible. Using Bluetooth, a sensor can connect to mobile devices, tablets, laptops and desktops. 

The sensor house five active elements:

  • An ambient light level sensor
  • A directional light level sensor
  • An RGB colour sensor
  • A white light LED illumination source

All of the elements can be used individually or together in any combination. 

The ambient light sensor is on the top of the sensor body, it is used to measure the amount of light available from a wide field measurement. 

The direction light sensor is at the end of a collimator that reduces the impact of non directional light. Measurements form this sensor will be from when the sensor is pointing directly at the light source.  

The RGB sensor will return colour information of a reflective surface on the RGB percentage schema. The white LED can be used to act as a constant light source for comparison. 

The white LED is to provide a constant light source for comparison of colour.
