New IoT light detection sensors from L com
|Brittany Hainzinger in IoT Monday, April 10, 2023|
L-com has expanded its line of IoT light-detection environmental sensors which now measure either ambient light or UV light, up to either 65,000 Lux or 200,000 Lux, and enable businesses to use IoT data collection to increase efficiency, improve safety, and much more.
L-com announced the expansion of its line of IoT light-detection environmental sensors. The sensors gauge either ambient or ultraviolet light.
The new sensors assist in the use of IoT data collection to make process control more efficient and lower building and process costs. Applications for light-detection sensors include greenhouses, agriculture, solar farms, labs, factory floors, manufacturing, and general environmental monitoring.
L-com’s new light sensors measure either ambient light or UV light. The wall-mount ambient light models measure light intensity up to either 65,000 Lux or 200,000 Lux. They have waterproof housing and are well suited for outdoors as well as demanding indoor environments such as factory floors.

The UV light model mounts to a DIN rail or a panel and is useful with UV testers, UV index meters, germicidal lamps, flame detection, UV monitoring equipment, and other applications. It is sensitive to UV light in wavelengths of 200 nm to 370 nm. It has a 4-20 mA output and screw-type terminals for easy field termination.
L-com also offers a 3-in-1 environmental integrated transmitter that measures illuminance as well as temperature and humidity. Contained in weatherproof, wall-mount housing, it is suitable for outdoors and for demanding indoor environments such as solar farms and industrial automation. Its output is via the popular Modbus protocol.
"Our new light-detection sensors have high sensitivities to detect specific light levels. They transmit a signal to an I/O module or PLC that then reports the information to a PC or SCADA system. This allows system integrators, engineers, and others to use IoT data collection to improve safety, make processes more efficient, and lower building costs," said Tim Houghton, L-com Senior Product Line Manager.
