This module provides a simple interface to TCS34725 colour/light sensors (Adafruit).

Note that you must call setup() before you can start reading values!

tcs34725.setup()

setupializes module. setupialization is mandatory before values can be read.

Syntax

tcs34725.setup()

Returns

0 if setup has failed (no sensor connected?), 1 if sensor is TCS34725

Example

tcs34725.setup()
tcs34725.enable(function()
    print("TCS34275 Enabled")
    clear,red,green,blue=tcs34725.raw()
end)

tcs34725.enable(function())

Enables the sensor. Can be used to wake up after a disable.

Syntax

tcs34725.enable(function()
    print("TCS34275 Enabled")
    clear,red,green,blue=tcs34725.raw()
end)

Parameters

A function called when the sensor has finished initialising.

Returns

0

tcs34725.disable()

Disables the sensor. Enables a low-power sleep mode.

Syntax

tcs34725.disable()

Returns

0

tcs34725.raw()

Reads the clear, red, green and blue values from the sensor.

Syntax

clear,red,green,blue=tcs34725.raw()

Returns

clear, red, green, blue in uint16_t.

tcs34725.setGain()

Sets the gain of the sensor. Must be called after the sensor is enabled.

Syntax

tcs34725.setGain(gain)

Parameters

gain Gain
0x00 TCS34725_GAIN_1X
0x01 TCS34725_GAIN_4X
0x02 TCS34725_GAIN_16X
0x03 TCS34725_GAIN_60X

Returns

0

tcs34725.setIntegrationTime()

Sets the integration time of the sensor. Must be called after the sensor is enabled.

Syntax

tcs34725.setIntegrationTime(time)

Parameters

time Gain
0xFF TCS34725_INTEGRATIONTIME_2_4MS
0xF6 TCS34725_INTEGRATIONTIME_24MS
0xD5 TCS34725_INTEGRATIONTIME_101MS
0xC0 TCS34725_INTEGRATIONTIME_154MS
0x00 TCS34725_INTEGRATIONTIME_700MS

Returns

0
