The ML8511 leakage sensor is an easy to use ultraviolet light The MP8511 UV (ultraviolet) Sensor works by outputing an analog signal in relation to how much UV light is detected This leak can be very useful in creating devices that warn the user Of sunburn or detect the UV index with regard to weather conditions.
This sensor detects 280-390nm light more effectively. This is classified as part of the UVB (ray burn) spectrum and most of the UVA RAY (tanning ray) spectrum. It generates an analog voltage that is linearly related to the measurement of intensity of the UV radiation (mW / cm2). If the microcontroller can do an analog to digital signal conversion then you can detect the UV level!
OKI (OKI) to launch the built-in ultraviolet (UV) operating amplifier of the IC-ML8511 sensor. The use of silicon-coated product (SOI) in the insulation-CMOS, the company's first analog output voltage, no UV filter sensor.
OKI UV sensor IC is easy thanks to the high degree of integration of SOI-CMOS technology, suitable for digital and analog circuits. OKI said that the future of the company will use this knowledge to strengthen the connection of the microprocessor's digital output circuit, and then with the type of brightness control detection sensor (Ambient Light Sensor) constitute a single line commodity chip ; Hope that not only for future products made for the day with a look at the amount of UV, and ready to grasp the degree of decorative UV risk measuring equipment, and will promote the application to appliances, portable field equipment.
ML8511 UV light can be used with an analog output voltage proportional to the amount. Since the output voltage can be connected directly to the MCU built A / D of the digital / analog converter, no photoelectric conversion circuit. And the use of small, low-profile surface-mount package, suitable for use in portable devices.
