ML8511 module is an easy to use ultraviolet light sensor. The ML8511 Sensor works by outputing an analog signal in relation to the amount of detected UV light . This breakout can be very handy in creating devices that warn the user of sunburn or detect the UV index as it relates to weather conditions.

This sensor detects 280-390nm light most effectively. This is categorized as part of the UVB (burning rays) spectrum and most of the UVA (tanning rays) spectrum. It outputs a analog voltage that is linearly related to the measured UV intensity (mW/cm2). Simply connect the output of the module to an ADC channel of microcontroller to read UV Light intensity.
