Description: Don't leave your next physical computing project stranded in a world of black and white! This color sensor module can detect the color of an object and report it back to your processor for applications like color sorting. The great thing about the HDJD-S822 is its simplicity to get it up and running. The gain of the sensor is controlled by digital input pins and it gives you separate analog outputs for red, green, and blue channels.

This breakout board makes it easy to embed the HDJD color sensor in your next project by breakout out all of the necessary pins to standard 0.1" headers.


  • Convert light to R,G,B voltage output
  • Independent gain selection options for each R,G,B channel
  • Supply Voltage: 5VDC
  • Dark voltage: 15mV
  • Maximum output voltage swing: 3V

  • How could an analog sensor —this HDJD-S822— be twice as expensive as a digital sensor —the SEN-10701 based on ADJD-S311-CR999?

  • hi everybody kindly tell me is this sensor works for just detecting RGB colour ? or anybody have any library please share it with me .. thanks

  • This breakout doesn’t have any current protection. I just fried 4 of them by accidentally driving the outputs with my Arduino Uno. Beware…

  • What is the distance it can mesure? Say I want to measure a dot in an accuracy of 1x1mm blocks from 10 meters away, is this ok to use or should I use a camera?

  • it doesn’t need calibrate!

  • I have read through the datasheet, and I am still not sure of what I need to do with the gain setting pins, should I attach them to DI/O/’s and then what, any explanation would be helpful.

  • Isn’t the recommended decoupling capacitor of 100nF already on the board? Seems like someone forgot to remove it from the copy-paste :)

  • Can this be used to determine the color temperature in kelvin of a light source? such as an LED, to determine if the rating of 6500K is accurate or not?

  • It would be nice to see a comparison between this and the ADJD-S311 sensor. What does $10 more get you?
