I've been wondering about the fact that the UV Index measurement is always reading 0, so I took my 200 watt reptile UV bulb and stuck it over the sensor. I'm still getting a reading of 0. The visible light went up to about 2900 lux, and the IR shot up to 14,000 lux, but UV still reads zero.
Is this a defective sensor, or am I missing something else?
Unlikely there is something wrong in the hardware, but it could be a software bug. We are getting a waaayyyy to high UV Reading from Project Curacao2 and we have to track that down. It's something to do with the scaling, but we knew it wasn't a hardware problem, so we are going to fix it in the near future after the station is up. Just a few more days!
