The Open Colorimeter is a single-wavelength photometer for measuring visible/IR light absorbance through samples in a standard 10mm pathlength cuvette. 

The device uses the  Adafruit TSL2591 Light Sensor and a PyBadge pre-programmed with open source CircuitPython firmware. The cuvette holder and enclosure are made from 3D-printed black plastic. Links to the hardware designs and open source firmware are in the Product Guide.

The Open Colorimeter ships pre-programmed & ready-to-use. No assembly, soldering or programming is required.

      Additional LED board options

      The Open Colorimeter comes with a white light LED included. Additional single-wavelength Open Colorimeter LED boards are available so users can fully customize their instrument to a preferred wavelength. We have a range of LED wavelength options to choose from and will be adding more as we develop them. Wavelength options describe the peak or dominant wavelength as described in the manufacturers spec sheets. More information on the LEDs, including links to manufacturer spec sheets, are in the electronics documentation page. Check out the Getting Started guide for instructions on swapping LED boards on the colorimeter.
