Solar sensors are also known as pyranometers. A type of actinometer, these devices are used for measuring broadband solar irradiance as well as solar radiation flux density, which means that they measure the power of the light and heat from the sun.
Proto-Pic has PRT-13781 solar panel which is capable of 2 watts in the open sun with a peak power output around 6V at 378mA. The termination is equipped with a 3.5mm x 1.1mm barrel plug and 5.5mm x 2.1mm adapter on a 22cm (8in) cable making the panel able to mate directly with many of our development boards. Each panel also features monocrystalline high efficiency cells at 19% with a waterproof urethane coating with hard-board backing. With robust sealing for out door applications this solar panel is incredibly durable and reliable!
Miniature Solar Cell
Proto-Pic has BPW34 is a tiny, general purpose PIN photodiode. This photodiode has a ton of uses, one of which is to use it is a mini solar cell to power small, low power projects. It is also useful when used as a sensor to detect light. The cell is sensitive to a wide range of light wavelengths (430-1100nm), so it should produce power in a number of different settings.
