Description: Note: This product is being discontiued and there is no direct replacement.

The PICAXE Color Sensor is a complete RGB color sensor module for color detection and sorting operations. The output of the sensor is a square wave with the frequency directly proportional to the light intensity. By counting the number of pulses in a short sample (50ms for example), you can get a reliable indication of the light intensity. The RGB sensor can be attached to any microcontroller capable of monitoring an GPIO pin, it can also be interfaced to all PICAXE chips that support the ‘count’ command.
