It uses a UV photodiode, which can detect the 240-370nm range of light (which covers UVB and most of UVA spectrum). The signal level from the photodiode is very small, in the nano-ampere level. This sensor is much simpler than our Si1145 breakout, it only does one thing and gives an analog voltage output instead of requiring a complicated I2C setup procedure. This makes it better for simple projects. It also has a 'true' UV sensor instead of a calibrated light-sensor. To use, power the sensor and op-amp by connecting V+ to 2.7-5.5VDC and GND to power ground.
- A UV photodiode, which can detect the 240-370nm range of light (which covers UVB and most of UVA spectrum)
- A 'true' UV sensor instead of a calibrated light-sensor
- UV LEDs - 400nm
- A UV tanning lamp or 'lizard-lamp' will work much better
