DIY Light (Lux) Meter using BH1750 sensor, Arduino and Nokia 5110

Hi guys, continuing on our recent path of building really cool stuffs based on the Nokia 5110 LCD display, today we will be building a DIY Lux (or light) meter using the highly sensitive BH1750 light sensor.

In photometry, illuminance is the total luminous flux incident on a surface, per unit area. It is a measure of how much the incident light illuminates the surface, wavelength-weighted by the luminosity function to correlate with human brightness perception. Similarly, luminous emittance is the luminous flux per unit area emitted from a surface. Luminous emittance is also known as luminous exitance.

Lux is a measurement of the overall intensity of light within an environment for any given area or distance from the source or lux is the amount of light in an environment perceived by the human eye. The Lux meter is thus, a device used to measure the light intensity within an environment and its exactly what we will be building during this tutorial.

Arduino Real Time Clock with DS1302 and Nokia 5110 LCD Display

Hi guys, in one of our previous tutorials, we made a real time clock, using the DS3231 RTC Module and the 1602 LCD display module. For this tutorial, we will be building something similar using the DS1302 RTC module and the Nokia 5110 display module. Unlike the 1602 LCD module which was used in the previous tutorial, the Nokia 5110 LCD module has the ability of displaying customized graphics which will help us display our data with better UX.

Arduino Nokia 5110 Tutorial #2- Displaying Customized Graphics

In one of our previous tutorials we did an introduction on how to use the Nokia 5110 LCD  with the Arduino, the tutorial covered displaying texts with different fonts etc. For this tutorial, we are taking things a little bit further and will be working through the display of customized graphics on the Nokia 5110 LCD display. This tutorial will particularly be useful for those who want to display their brand logo or any other kind of image on the LCD asides ordinary texts.

How to drive Nokia 5110 84×48 LCD display with Arduino

In the previous tutorial I showed how to build a weather station using DHT11 and BMP180 with an Arduino. However, the project has a downside which is the power consumption of the 16X2 LCD. If we were building a battery powered project with the desire to last for several weeks and probably several months, like a weather station for instance, then we’ll have to replace the LCD keypad shield from the previous tutorials and go for something like the low powered Nokia 5110 84×84 LCD display. In this tutorial I will be showing you how to drive this display with the Arduino and thus build projects with longer battery life.

Arduino Tutorial: Menu on a Nokia 5110 LCD Display Tutorial

In this easy Arduino Tutorial educ8s.tv is going to show us how to create a Menu on a Nokia 5110 LCD display.

This is the project we are going to build. In the display a simple menu appears, and with the help of three buttons I can navigate up, or down and select a menu item. Let’s select the first option. As you can see a new a UI screen is displayed and by pressing the up and down buttons we can change the contrast of the display. If we press the middle button again, we go back to the main UI screen. If we now select the second menu item and press the middle button we can turn the backlight of the display on or off. Lastly if we navigate to the last menu item we can reset the settings for the display to the default values. Of course this is just a demonstration project, you can modify it to build your own more complex menus if you wish. Let’s now see how to build this project.

Vincenzopaolo FlameE @ instructables.com shows us how to create an external hardware monitor based on Arduino and Nokia LCD display. Communication with the PC is done using Visual Basic program.

Hi guys! Today I will show you how create an external hardware monitor with any Arduino board(in my case a pro micro board), a Nokia 5110 LCD and some VB programming! Let’s get started!

DIY Voltmeter using a simple voltage sensor and Arduino Uno and a Nokia 5110 LCD

In this video we are going to learn how to build our own voltmeter using a very inexpensive sensor. The voltage we measure is then displayed in a Nokia 5110 LCD display. This project is very easy to build and great learning experience.

With this project we can measure the voltage of our voltage sources, or monitor the battery level of our projects. Let’s see the project in action. I have connected two wires to the voltage sensor module I am using today. I place the red wire to the positive terminal of an AA battery and the black wire to the negative terminal of the battery. In the display we get its voltage. Let’s now try this 18650 battery, we get 3.6V. Let’s now measure this big 12V battery. The voltage is 12.2V. If we compare the readings with a Multimeter, we can see that the measurements are really close! The project is working fine. But be careful, the maximum input voltage that this sensor can measure is 25V, so if you exceed it, you are going to burn your Arduino Pin. Let’s now see how to build this project.

Mini Arduino Lux Meter

FFXIA2JIN3EHHKH.MEDIUM

Here is a nice build of a LUX meter using BH1750 sensor and a Nokia 5110 LCD. The meter is controlled by an Arduino Pro Mini and is powered by a Li-Ion battery. The LCD backlight is controlled according to environment light and there is graphing capability of the measured light intensity.

That’s when I realized that I had an unused BH1750 light meter module laying around, which I bought some time ago but never used it. So I grabbed an Arduino, a Nokia 5110 LCD, wired everything up on a breadboard and had a functioning lux meter within a few hours. To make it a bit more fancy, I added some graphing functionality and made the LCD backlight switch on/off depending on the light level.
