KY-018 Digital LDR Light Dependent Resistor Sensor Module is used to detect the presence of light / measuring the intensity of light. The output of the KY-018 Digital LDR module goes high in the presence of light and it becomes low in the absence of light. The sensitivity of the signal detection can be adjusted using potentiometer.

The KY-018 Digital LDR Light Dependent Resistor Sensor Module is a light dependent resistor or LDR that can be easily connected to any Arduino analog input.

KY-018 Digital LDR provides an analog signal that varies with the amount of visible light received and it can be used natural light at indoors or outdoors or artificial light and even infrared or ultraviolet light (less sensitive). By combining two of these sensors, you can implement a classic light following robot.

In darkness, the approximate resistor value of the LDR is very high (approximately of 1MΩ), while this value decreases dramatically with light depending on light intensity. The internal resistor included in the module acts as a voltage divider.

KY-018 Digital LDR is a light-controlled variable resistor. The resistance of a photoresistor decreases with increasing incident light intensity; in other words, it exhibits photoconductivity. This module allows for easy sensing of light levels from within your micro controller application.

Just connect GND and VCC to the module and a varying voltage depending on light level is available on the third pin. The photosensitive resistances can be divided into three types by their spectral properties: UV resistance, infrared photosensitive resistance, visible light photosensitive resistor.

KY-018 Digital LDR Module consists of a photoresistor and a 10 kΩ in-line resistor. The photoresistor’s resistance will decrease in the presence of light and increase in the absence of it. The output is analog and determines the intensity of light.
