Product information "Pimoroni AS7262 6-channel Spectral Sensor (Spectrometer) Breakout"


Detect six distinct channels of visible light with this fancy-pants spectral sensor!

Unlike normal RGB colour sensors, with the AS7262 you'll get six bands of colour readings that roughly translate to red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Rainbow-y!

The two on-board white LEDs mean that you can illuminate materials to give more accurate spectral readings and also measure reflectivity of surfaces. The LEDs we've used are really high quality ones with a CRI of >=90 and a colour temperature of 4,000K for consistent and accurate colour rendering.

You can do all sorts of cool things with this sensor, like analysing different light sources, measuring  transmission of light through materials or solutions (with an additional light source), and more. Why not combine the AS7262 breakout with one of OLED breakouts, and chart the colour information on it?

The AS7262 6-Channel Spectral Sensor Breakout has an I2C interface and is 3.3V or 5V compatible. Like other Pimoroni breakouts, 

It's also compatible with our fancy new Breakout Garden, where using breakouts is as easy just popping it into one of the six slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code.
