TCS3200 Color Sensor is a color detector, including a TAOS TCS3200 RGB sensor chip and 4 white LED. The TCS3200 can detect and measure a nearly limitless range of visible colors. Applications include test strip reading, sorting by color, ambient light sensing and calibration, and color matching, to name just a few.
The TCS3200 has an array of photo detectors, 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 that produces a square-wave output whose frequency is proportional to the intensity of the chosen color.
