The Light level sensor is one of the essential sensors for data logging.
It can record using five different ranges, these include four filtered ranges that cover from 0 to 100,000 Lux, a transmission range for homemade colorimeters and the fast response range which has no filtering and will show the modulation on an incandescent or fluorescent light.
The sensor utilises the photometric system of measurement that defines light in terms of how it is perceived by the human eye. The eye’s sensitivity is dependent on the wavelength or colour of the light.
Peak sensitivity occurs in the green part of the visible spectrum while the eye’s response to infrared or ultraviolet is zero.
The SmartQ Light Level Sensor can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:
