With configurable events it is possible to react on changing values without polling.
Typical applications are sunscreen warning and environmental data logging.

To test a UV Light Bricklet 2.0 you need to have Brick Daemon and Brick Viewer installed. Brick Daemon acts as a proxy between the USB interface of the Bricks and the API bindings. Brick Viewer connects to Brick Daemon. It helps to figure out basic information about the connected Bricks and Bricklets and allows to test them.
Connect the UV Light Bricklet 2.0 to a Brick with a Bricklet Cable.
If you connect the Brick to the PC over USB, you should see a new tab named "UV Light Bricklet 2.0" in the Brick Viewer after a moment. Select this tab. If everything went as expected the Brick Viewer should show UV-A and UV-B measurements as well as the UV index.
After this test you can go on with writing your own application. See the Programming Interface section for the API of the UV Light Bricklet 2.0 and examples in different programming languages.
See Programming Interface for a detailed description.
