TCS34725 LED Brightness

by KC123_ on Sat Feb 29, 2020 5:32 am

Is it possible to turn down the brightness of the LED on the TCS34725 colour sensor board? I don't want to turn it off completely because then the sensor won't work well enough for me. But right now I have to wear sunglasses while working with it.

There is no brightness control on the LED. You could put a filter in front of it. A couple of layers of the anti-static bag it came in would work. But it will give you a slight bluish color shift, so you might need to adjust your code for that.
