TCS3200 Color Sensor Module


Arduino color Sensor or TCS3200 color recognition Sensor Module uses a mild sensor allowing one to sense any color through a combination of purple, green, and Blue. The module offers all the pins of the TCS3200 on convenient 0.1″ headers and is ideal for use with PCBs, breadboard, or stripboard. 4 white LEDs provide lots of light for the color sensor and allow to use of the module in any ambient light. The color sensor module’s single supply voltage is between 2.7V and 5.5V making it like nearly all common microcontrollers, consisting of Pc’s, AVRs, ARM, Arduino, etc
