Detect UVA, UVB, and UV index with this sensor. Use it to measure levels of harmful UVA and UVB radiation and to calculate an easily-understandable UV index. Slap on that sunscreen!

This UV sensor can calculate UV indices (A, B, average) on the fly, so that you can easily gauge how strong the sun's rays are at any given time. It works great when combined with a 5x5 RGB matrix breakout and a Breakout Garden HAT or pHAT to create a traffic light warning system.

The VEML6075 UVA/B sensor breakout has an I2C interface and is 3.3V or 5V compatible. Like other Pimoroni breakouts, it's designed so that you can solder a piece of right-angle header onto it and then pop it straight onto the bottom left 5 pins on your Raspberry Pi's GPIO header (pins 1, 3, 5, 6, 9).
