Light sensors

TetraScience is excited to announce our latest monitoring capability—Light sensors.

What is it

Light sensors measure real-time light intensity and color content (RGB) including UVA, UVB, IR, and ambient light.

Why is it important

Light sensors provide another means of monitoring storage units, rooms and more. For instance, there are storage units and rooms that cannot be monitored by a classic temperature or gas sensor. Light sensors detect if a door has been left open, or if a light has been left on. Light sensors are important to a completely connected and monitored lab environment.

A typical use case

Many compounds are light-sensitive and degrade when exposed to certain light intensities. These compounds must be stored in darkness. A light sensor ensures there is no light infiltrating the compound’s room or cabinet including when the room’s door is left open.
