BH1750FVI is a digital ambient light sensing IC produced by Japan ROHM semiconductor. Built-in 16-bit analog-to-digital converter can directly output a digital signal without complex calculations. This is a more sophisticated version easy to use a simple resistor to get valid data by calculating voltage. This ambient light sensor can measure objects directly by photometer. The unit of light intensity is lumens “lx”. When an object is exposed to uniform light, it can obtain the luminous flux of 1lx per square meter with 1lx light intensity. Sometimes in order to make full use of the light source, you can add a light source reflection device. In this way, more luminous flux can be obtained in some directions to increase the brightness of the illuminated surface.

Luminance, also known as light intensity and luminous rate, refers to the brightness of a surface that can be expressed in L. L refers to a luminous flux reflected from a surface or the luminous intensity per projection area of a surface facing light in a certain direction. Indicating the brightness of the luminous surface, in the unit of Kendra / square meter is the ratio of the luminous intensity of the luminous surface in the specified direction to the area of the luminous surface perpendicular to the specified direction.
For a diffused scattering surface, although the light intensity and luminous flux in each direction are different, the brightness in all directions is equal. The phosphor screen of the TV is similar to this kind of diffused surface, so looking at the image from all directions has the same brightness sense. Different objects have different reflection or absorption coefficients to light.

Experimental Procedures for Arduino

Step 1: Connect the circuit:
GY-30 3.jpg

#include <Wire.h>

// GY-30

// BH1750FVI

// in ADDR 'L' mode 7bit addr

#define ADDR 0b0100011

// addr 'H' mode

// #define ADDR 0b1011100

void setup() {

// put your setup code here, to run once:


while (!Serial) {

; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for Leonardo only







void loop() {

// put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

int val = 0;

// reset







// typical read delay 120ms


Wire.requestFrom(ADDR, 2); // 2byte every time

for (val = 0; Wire.available() >= 1; ) {

char c = Wire.read();

//Serial.println(c, HEX);

val = (val << 8) + (c & 0xFF);


val = val / 1.2;

Serial.print("lx: ");
