Description

Manufactured by AMS-TAOS USA Inc., the TSL45315 device provides ambient light sensing (ALS), giving direct lux output that approximates human eye response under a variety of lighting conditions.

While useful for general purpose light sensing, the device is particularly useful for sensing light in applications where the device is exposed directly to the ambient light, such as street lighting where bright sunlight can produce very high lux readings.

Other applications include display management for the purpose of extending battery life and providing optimum viewing in diverse lighting conditions.
The TSL45315 devices can also be used in solid-state and general lighting for automatic control and daylight harvesting to maximize energy conservation.

This Mini Module includes on-board power regulation and PCA9306 I2C level-shifting circuitry to adapt to our 5V I2C standard.

Mini Modules

Our mini modules provide a standardized footprint to simplify the design of your project, and allow for a smaller form factor without sacrificing the plug-and-play  ease of use that our product line affords.

All I²C Mini Modules are designed to operate at 5VDC. Using a convenient quick connect 4-Pin plug, devices can be daisy-chained onto the I²C Bus, eliminating the need for soldering. Simply plug together the devices you need for your next automation application.

Pull-up resistors are included with all ControlEverything.com master devices. If you are wiring in your own I²C port, on-board 4.7K jumper-selectable pull-up resistors are available for convenience purposes.

All mini modules are 50.8 x 31.75 mm.
