I am a new arduino enthusiast and still rather inexperienced. I am working for a British company which is designing and installing biogas systems in rural Tanzania - which is where I am based. I am in the process of conducting some technical analysis of biogas lamps which are used with the biogas system. I would like to devise a test to measure the lux levels of lamps such as this one:
I am planning on placing a number of light sensors spaced inside a black box and measure the lux levels in the vertical and horizontal plane. My problem is that I am not sure which would be the best sensors to use with my Arduino Duemilanove.
Could anyone advice me which sensors would be most appropriate for this? I will order them from the UK as someone will be coming out to Tanzania in a couple of weeks who can bring them.
