Introduction

TCS3200 Color Sensor is a complete color detector, including a TAOS TCS3200 RGB sensor chip and 4 white LEDs.  The TCS3200 can detect and measure a nearly limitless range of visible colors. Applications include test strip reading, sorting by color, ambient light sensing and calibration, and color matching, to name just a few.
 
The TCS3200 has an array of photodetectors, each with either a red, green, or blue filter, or no filter (clear). The filters of each color are distributed evenly throughout the array to eliminate location bias among the colors. Internal to the device is an oscillator which produces a square-wave output whose frequency is proportional to the intensity of the chosen color.

    TCS3200 sensor seems to work fine. There was more wiring than for the UV sensor but good for learning. I had to modify the provided code to slow down the output. (Posted on 6/03/2018)

    Reasonable little sensor -- needs calibration each time you start up your chip and has different sensitivities to incident and reflective light. Try Marco Colli's MD_TCS230 Arduino library to get you going!
