|The TCS230 has an array of
photodetectors, each with either a red, green, or blue filter, or no
filter (clear). Includes Appmod adapter cable for easy hook up.
The TCS230 sensor module set is comprised of a complete color
detector, including a TAOS TCS230 RGB sensor chip, white LEDs,
collimator lens, AppMod adapter board, and connecting cable. It
interfaces easily to any BASIC Stamp, either through an AppMod socket or
connected directly, and can detect and measure a nearly limitless range
of visible colors. Applications include color edge-following robots,
sorting by color, and color matching, to name just a few.
The TCS230 has an array of photodetectors, each with either a red,
green, or blue filter, or no filter (clear). The filters of each color
are distributed evenly throughout the array to eliminate location bias
among the colors. Internal to the device is an oscillator which produces
a square-wave output whose frequency is proportional to the intensity of
the chosen color. Read the documentation below and check out the Color
Matching Demo for more detailed information.
