How to interpret output for NIR AS7263 special sensor output

Post by metalaureate » Sat Nov 10, 2018 8:35 am

I bought the AS7263 out of curiosity. I have it hooked up, but what are the R, S, T, U, V, W outputs? Are they the values of each of the bands? I assume so but I can't find any documentation.

Also, anyone got any ideas about anything useful to do with it? Its spectrum is too low for interesting agricultural purposes such as soil analysis.

There's a datasheet here:
https://ams.com/documents/20143/36005/A ... 26d2eefa70
Page 11 describes the different wavelengths for each channel.
R = 610 nm
S = 680 nm
and so on.

Google "AS7263 datasheet" and there are quite a few references on the device
especially from the manufacturer.

Very useful as a small, inexpensive spectrometer for the wavelength bands supported by the device.
