2. Working principle

Sunlight at different angles converges to the photosensitive area through the cosine corrector. The sunlight concentrated in the photosensitive area filters out light other than visible light through the blue and yellow imported filters; the visible light passing through the filter irradiates the imported photodiode. The photodiode converts the photoelectric signal into an electrical signal according to the intensity of visible light, and the electrical signal enters the microcontroller system. The microcontroller system performs temperature compensation on the collected photoelectric signal based on the temperature sensing circuit, and outputs a precise linear electrical signal.

In order to improve the accuracy and resolution of the transmitter, we adopt a unique patented technology, dual-channel signal output, which are KLUX level signal and LUX level signal.

Data conversion example:

Listed as output: KLUX=10mA, LUX=10mA


LUX=(10-4 )/(20-4)*150000= 56.25Klux

Light intensity=56.375KLUX

Product wiring instructions:

Positive pole of power supply


Negative pole of power supply


Signal 485A




Warning: Wiring process: Generally speaking, the wiring should be completely connected and confirmed before powering on. Live work is prohibited. In special circumstances, when working under live power, the negative pole of the power supply should be connected first, then the positive pole of the power supply, and then the output signal. Working with electricity on, in some cases, may damage the sensor! And it is damaged by improper human operation!

For 485 usage, if the signal is unstable, you can refer to the 485 specification and choose a terminal resistor. You can also consult the power company for details.


4. Conventional data

Natural lighting, sunlight exposure is natural lighting.

Artificial lighting, lighting is artificial lighting.

In summer, under direct sunlight, the light intensity can reach 60Klux ~ 150Klux, 1Klux ~ 10Klux outdoors without sunlight, 100 ~ 550lux indoors in bright summer, and 0.2lux under the full moon at night.

1 watt of incandescent lamp is about 12.56lux

The luminous efficiency of fluorescent lamps is 3 to 4 times that of incandescent lamps.

5. Application areas

Widely used in agriculture, forestry, greenhouse cultivation, breeding, agricultural experimental fields, meteorological observation, and scientific laboratories
