TCS3200 Color Recognition Sensor is a small module designed with TCS3200 Color Sensor that can convert light intensity to frequency. The TCS3200 can detect and measure a nearly limitless range of visible colors.
Applications include test strip reading, sorting by color, ambient light sensing and calibration, and color matching, to name just a few.
The TCS3200 has an array of photo detectors, each with either a red, green, or blue filter, or no filter (clear). The filters of each color are distributed evenly throughout the array to eliminate location bias among the colors.
Internal to the device is an oscillator which produces a square-wave output whose frequency is proportional to the intensity of the chosen color.
Power supply: 3-5v
Resistance to light interference
Can detect non-luminous object color
White LED can be controlled on and off
