The "Colour Sensor tcs3200 " is an electronic component used to detect and measure colors in various objects. It is designed to accurately sense the color of an object by analyzing the light reflected from its surface.

Here's some information about the Colour Sensor tcs3200 :

TCS3200: "TCS3200" refers to the actual color sensor chip used in the module. It is manufactured by Texas Instruments and is well-known for its accurate color detection capabilities.

TCS3200 Color Sensor: This Sensor Module is a complete package that includes the color sensor TCS3200 chip, as well as other components like resistors, capacitors, and LEDs. These additional components help to make the sensor easier to use and integrate into projects.

Color Sensing: The color sensor tcs3200 works by shining white light onto an object's surface and then measuring the intensity of the light reflected back from the object. It uses an array of light-sensitive photodiodes to detect the different components of the reflected light, such as red, green, blue, and clear light. By analyzing the intensity of each color component, the sensor can determine the overall color of the object.

The output of TCS3200 Color Sensor: This Color Sensor Module typically provides digital output signals that can be read by a microcontroller or Arduino board. These signals convey the color information detected by the sensor, allowing the microcontroller to make decisions or take actions based on the color data.

Applications of the TCS3200 Color Sensor

include color sorting machines, color detection in robotic applications, color sensing for line-following robots, color-based object recognition systems, and other projects that require accurate color detection capabilities.

To use this Color Sensor Module effectively, you will need to interface it with a microcontroller or a development board, such as Arduino.

The pinout is clearly labeled on the board and is as follows

Header one on the left side of the board
  • S0: Output frequency scaling selection input (along with S1)
  • S1: Output frequency scaling selection input (along with S0)
  • OE: Output Enable – if held low, the output of the module is turned on
  • GND: Ground – connect to 0V
Header two on the right side of the board
  • S3: Photodiode type (along with S2)
  • S2: Photodiode type (along with S3)
  • OUT: Output – A square wave appears here showing the intensity of the detected color
  • VCC: Power – connect to 2.7V-5.5V

The Photodiode type pins allow you to pick which color light you are currently detecting

S2 S3 Photodiode Type
Low Low Only Red light
Low High Only Blue light
High Low No filter
High Greenlight

By combining the reading of each of the three colors, you can identify any visible color!
