Description

ROHM Semiconductor's BH1745NUC is a 16-bit I2C digital color sensor that detects RGB (Red, Green, Blue) components and converts them into digital values. High sensitivity, wide detection range (0.005 to 40k lx), and excellent IR cut characteristics make it easy to accurately obtain the color temperature and brightness of ambient light.

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.
