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 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 our other breakouts, it is 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).
It's also compatible with Breakout Garden, where using breakouts is as easy as just popping it into one of the six slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code.
Pimoroni have put together a Python Library that you can use to read data from your VEML6075 UVA/B Sensor Breakout, and an easy one-line installer to install everything.
