Product Description

This is an easy to use and powerful color sensor.  The sensor converts filtered light digital values for red, green, blue, and clear colors.   It can be used for sorting, color detection, or with a RGB LED for color reproduction.

The BM017 module carries one AMS TCS34725 color light-to-digital converter IC. The IC has an I2C interface allowing digital systems to measure object color. Red, blue, green, and clear values may be read. The module also has a white LED and MOSFET that may be used to illuminate objects. Voltage level translation circuitry is included allowing the module to interface to 3V or 5V logic systems. A 3.3V linear regulator on the module provides power to the color sensor.  Module documentation and application info are available to get you started right away. This is open source hardware, all design files are available.

  • Red, blue, green, and clear digital color measurements
  • White LED on board may be used to illuminate objects being tested
  • On-board 3.3V regulator
  • Voltage level translation circuitry allows use with 3V or 5V logic
  • I2C interface

    Received this today and put it into my system and it was able to detect immediately the different LEDs I need to monitor

    It has solved my issue and allowed me to focus on getting the project out the door!
