The TSL2561 Luminosity Sensor Breakout is a sophisticated light sensor which has a flat response across most of the visible spectrum. Unlike simpler sensors, the TSL2561 measures both infrared and visible light to better approximate the response of the human eye. And because the TSL2561 is an integrating sensor (it soaks up light for a predetermined amount of time), it is capable of measuring both small and large amounts of light by changing the integration time.
The TSL2561 is capable of direct I2C communication and can easily transfer to 0.1 – 40k+ Lux. In addition, the TSL12561 contains two integrated analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that can simultaneously integrate currents from two cameras. Each break requires a voltage of 3V and a low current of 0.6mA max.

The TSL2561 Luminescence Sensor Breakout is a sophisticated light sensor with flat response over most of the visible spectrum. Unlike simpler sensors, the TSL2561 measures infrared and visible light to better approximate the response of the human eye. Since the TSL2561 is an integrated sensor (it soaks the light for a predetermined time), it is able to measure small and large amounts of light by varying the integration time.
