Üoverview

The ColorPAL from Parallax is a miniaturized color and light sensor that can function as a color generator with its RGB LED. When detecting color, the ColorPAL uses its LED to illuminate a sample in color while measuring reflected light with a broadband light/voltage converter. The amount of light reflected from the sample under illumination from each red, green and blue LED can be used to determine the color of the sample. For the ColorPAL to detect the color of an object, the object must be reflective and not fluorescent. The color of light emitting objects (e.g. LEDs) cannot be detected.

 

Features

- Detects a variety of colors and outputs data as 10-bit RGB (red/green/blue) components.
- Detects broadband ambient light with a sensitivity of up to 44µW/cm2 per lsb.
- Generates 24-bit color with integrated RGB LED.
- Plugged into servo connector or cable or löt-free printed circuit boards.
- The single-pin interface uses a simple serial protocol to define and initiate color detection and generation.
- Color detection and generation details are processed by the integrated microcontroller.
- Integrated EEPROM for storing user-defined color detection and generation programs.
- The autorun function allows you to execute a predefined EEPROM program with only one power supply.
