The product is available in our warehouse. You can place the order and you will receive it according to the shipping method.
On Demand products are items that we bring to our customers through an order.
So place a normal order and we will ask for them to our suppliers, and will ship to you in just one shipment to save costs. The period may vary from 1 to 3 weeks. When the order is complete, we will ship it to you!.
Currently, there is no stock, but we will receive it soon. You can buy it and we will ship the order as soon as it comes back available (normally from 1 to 3 weeks).
Orders that include an On Demand or Back Order item will be shipped when they are available again in one shipment. This means the order will take from 1 to 3 weeks to be shipped once the order is placed You will be notified when adding a backorder product in the cart. If you want to receive first the items in-stock, please, place two different orders separating the in-stock and On Demand or Back Order items.
This product is only available for search (tutorials, schematics...). They can not be purchased.

Flora Lux Sensor - TSL2561 Light Sensor - v1.0
* Required fields
Add light-reactive sensing to your wearable Flora project with this high precision Lux sensor. The TSL2561 luminosity sensor is an advanced digital light sensor, ideal for use in a wide range of light situations. Compared to low cost CdS cells, this sensor is more precise, allowing for exact lux calculations and can be configured for different gain/timing ranges to detect light ranges from up to 0.1 - 40,000+ Lux on the fly. The best part of this sensor is that it contains both infrared and full spectrum diodes! That means you can separately measure infrared, full-spectrum or human-visible light. Most sensors can only detect one or the other, which does not accurately represent what human eyes see (since we cannot perceive the IR light that is detected by most photo diodes)
The sensor has a digital (I2C) interface. Attaching it to the flora is simple: line up the sensor so its adjacent to the SDA/SCL pins and sew conductive thread from the 3V, SDA, SCL and GND pins. They line up perfectly so you will not have any crossed lines. You can only connect one lux sensor to your Flora, but you can connect other I2C sensors/outputs by using the set of SCL/SDA pins on the opposite side. The current draw is extremely low, about 0.5mA when actively sensing, and less than 15 uA when in powerdown mode.
Check our our Flora Lux Sensor tutorial, the conventional TSL2561 tutorial, and you can use our Arduino library-- the example and library code will work 'out of the box' with Flora.
