Description

Manufactured by AMS-TAOS USA Inc., the TSL2561 is a light-to-digital converter that transforms light intensity to a digital signal output with an integrated I2C interface.

The TSL2561 is designed for display panels (LCD, OLED, etc.) with the purpose of extending battery life and providing optimum viewing in diverse lighting conditions.

Possible applications include:

  • street light control,
  • security lighting,
  • sunlight harvesting,
  • machine vision, and
  • automotive instrumentation clusters.

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.
