Description

LIGHT is a light intensity sensor unit with an adjustable photoresistor。

A photoresistor is a light-controlled variable resistor. The resistance of a photoresistor decreases with increasing incident light intensity, and vice versa. It exhibits photoconductivity which make it possiable to detect the varies based on Voltage, and use a AD to convert the digital data.

We add some extra work to strengthen the circult, a Dual Differential Comparators LM393, compares the differntial voltage between the photoresistor and the varistor. It could offer larger and accuracy range of light intensity.

Example

1. Arduino IDE

The code below is incomplete. To complete code, please click here.

#include <M5Stack.h>

// declaration
uint16_t analogRead_value = 0;
uint16_t digitalRead_value = 0;

// initialization
M5.begin();
dacWrite(25, 0);// disable the speak noise
pinMode(26, INPUT);// LIGHT Pin setting

// read data
analogRead_value = analogRead(36);// read analog value of LIGHT
digitalRead_value = digitalRead(26);
