In practice, the user needs to specify both the desired color and intensity. This can be done using CIE xyY values, where xy represent the CIE 1931 chromaticity coordinates, and Y represents the intensity. This approach is, however, not as intuitive as the RGB settings most lighting designers are familiar with.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution. Referring to the six-color LED module color gamut shown, we can completely enclose the six-sided color gamut in a triangle defined by the xy chromaticities of virtual red, green, and blue LEDs. It does not matter that the red LED chromaticity lies outside the horseshoe-shaped spectral locus and so represents a physically impossible color. What does matter is that the RGB values can be used to represent any color (and intensity) within the six-color LED module color gamut.

System has the independent and common reset for current dynamic range. Also LEDs are shows the intensity of the particular channel diapason acquisition by PWM sensor control. Common LAD shows the 50% of common five sensor’s intensity threshold. Due the amplification the TCS3103 sensor can be remote from the port for up to a meter with regular ribon cable connection.
