This little sensor is a great way to add UVA and UVB light sensing to any microcontroller project. The VEML6075 from Vishay has both true UVA and UVB band light sensors and an I2C-controlled ADC that will take readings and integrate them. The sensor also comes with calibration registers so you can easily convert the UVA/UVB readings into the UV Index.

Compared to our other UV sensors, this one actually does a pretty good job of getting accurate UV data. Unlike the Si1145, it has a real UV sensor, and in contrast to the VEML6070, it has dual-band sensors and an Index calculation algorithm. So far this is the best UV sensor we've got!

This UV sensor works great with 3 or 5V power or logic, its nice and compact, and it's easy to use with any I2C-capable microcontroller. 

Each order comes with one assembled PCB with a sensor, power regulator, level shifting and a small piece of a header row. Some light soldering is required to attach the header but it's a fast task!

Checking out UV sensor

It installed easily. I tested the index result with another uv sensor and the results were broadly similar. I'm very pleased with the speed of delivery Only ****** is that you have to solder the headers and the arduino libraries seem to be confusing - but that's not the fault of the supplier
