Ah, I might have gotten a bit ahead of myself there... Had another search around and stumbled across this one:http://www.scitec.uk.com/uvphotodiodes/ ... e_%231.pdf
As far as I can tell, this thing has three connectors like the Phidgets board, one for V+, one for ground, and one for signal... It provides an output voltage of 0-5V, and so should plug right into the Phidgets board as far as I can tell?
The only thing that looks "off" is that it requires an input voltage of 7-24V and as far as I understand, the Phidgets board only provides 5V... Would it somehow be possible to connect a regular 9V battery or a 12V powersupply to its input and still get the signal into the Phidgets board? And if so, would its ground connector go to the negative on the battery? Perhaps it could still run off the Phidgets board entirely, but would just provide a lower signal voltage, which I could calibraty myself out of?
Sorry, I'm really not good at this electronics stuff, bear with me if I'm rambling
This sensor is kinda pricey too, but it does have the needed amplifier built-in and comes in a very nice and small size. If it would work, it might be the best option rather than spend too much time and get frustrated in the end with another product
