The Light Sensor (A1) is a photosensitive brightness detection sensor module.

The light sensor transforms the light signal into electric signal with the photosensitive resistance. Its sensitive wavelength is near that of the visible light, including the infrared and the ultraviolet.

*Compatible with the DIY and mCookie series.
