CircuitPython driver for the VEML6070 UV Index Sensor Breakout


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-veml6070

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-veml6070

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-veml6070

Usage Example

import time
import board
import busio
from adafruit_veml6070 import VEML6070

with busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA) as i2c:
    uv = VEML6070(i2c)
    # Alternative constructors with parameters
    #uv = VEML6070(i2c, 'VEML6070_1_T')
    #uv = VEML6070(i2c, 'VEML6070_HALF_T', True)

    # take 10 readings
    for j in range(10):
        uv_raw = uv.uv_raw
        risk_level = uv.get_index(uv_raw)
        print('Reading: {0} | Risk Level: {1}'.format(uv_raw, risk_level))
