In Active mode, the internal LED provides the light source for detecting the target color. Best results in Active mode are obtained when the target is within about 7cm of the color sensor. In Passive mode, the internal LED is switched off and the sensor detects the color of the light from an external light source such as a colored LED or lighted device.
