Temperature Sensor DS18B20

Electronic Brick, Waterproof and other Versions NOTE: There are different-appearing versions but they work the same. This is an electronic thermometer which has high accuracy over a wide range (accurate to ±0.5°C over the range of -10°C to +85°C) (Workable from -55°C to +125°C). You can locate these thermometer chips up to 100M away from your Arduino. Shorter cables can be just 2 wires. NOTE: There must be ...

HSM-20G temperature & humidity analog sensor + Nokia5110 LCD

Temperature and humidity measurement are always a nice addition to hobbyist projects. In my previous post, I’ve discussed the DHT11 sensor, which is capable of measuring both temperature and humidity. They are digital sensor and provide calibrated outputs with temperature and relative humidity. I’ve also demonstrated how to interface with Arduino and display it on 1602 LCD. Unlike DHT series, HSM -20G is an ...

Sensor enables low-light imaging for smart-phone cameras

Based on 1.1-µm pixel technology, the AR1335 CMOS image sensor from ON Semiconductor provides 18% better sensitivity than previous-generation devices, along with increased quantum efficiency and linear well capacity to enable near-digital still-camera quality and low-light imaging on smart-phone cameras. The sensor’s pixel and color filter processing increase sensitivity, allowing more light to be captured ...

Temperature Sensor 2 0

Overview This board allows you to use a thermistor to measure the temperature of something. It is designed to be used to measure things in the range of 100C - 300C, but with the proper calibration and resistors, it can be adapted to any temperature range you need (under 300C). If you need something that can measure temperatures above 300C, you should look into the Thermocouple Sensor. You'll need a solderin ...

Interfacing pressure sensor to arduino

This article is about interfacing  pressure sensor to arduino. The pressure sensor used here is SPD005G from Smartec . SPD (Smart Pressure Device) is a series of silicon based pressure sensors suitable for industrial as well as house hold applications. These sensors are generally available in plastic inline or dual inline packaging. SPD sensors are generally available in two operation modes namely gauge typ ...

Combo MEMS sensor solution with integrated gas sensor launches at CES

The BME680 from Bosch Sensortec is the world’s first environmental sensor combining pressure, humidity, temperature, and indoor air quality in a single 3×3mm2 package. The new IC enables mobile devices and wearables to monitor indoor air quality measurement in a low power, small footprint package. The level of integration is what makes this solution so attractive as well as Bosch’s capabilities with softwar ...

iButtonLink T-Sense 1-wire sensor (Maxim DS18B20) + PIC 18F14K22

I came across a stash of iButton T-sense 1-wire sensors.. so I grabbed a couple and decided to check out 1-wire. Maxim makes a 1-wire device called the DS18B20. It’s a 9-12 bit temperature sensor with the possibility of being powered by parasitic power from the data line. This cuts the signal path down to a single DQ line and a return. A company called iButtonLink produces a nice little wrapper around this ...

WIRELESS SENSOR ALERTS YOUR SMARTPHONE AS FOOD BEGINS TO SPOIL

While the stench of rotting food would cause you to stop from chowing down, chances are it became unfit for consumption some time before those funky aromas wafted through your nostrils. Chemists at MIT have been working on a wireless, inexpensive sensor that, among other things, identifies spoiled food early by detecting gases in the air. It then shares its data with a smartphone, potentially alerting users ...

Using an Arduino as a garage car parking sensor

“M-my lord, it-it’s impossible to locate the ship. It’s out of our range.” – Nute Gunray We recently moved into a new house and as always the first problem to address was finding the optimal place to park cars in the garage. Ideally, we wanted to park the cars as close to the garage door as possible, leaving the maximum free space between the front of the car and the back wall of the garage. I was discussin ...

How to Build a (Piezo) Knock Sensor Circuit

In this article, we go over how to build a piezo knock sensor circuit. A knock sensor is a sensor which produces a voltage in response to some type of physical stress such as a knock or vibration. This is why it's called a knock sensor; it detects knocks. This sensor can be useful when you want a circuit to be able to respond to knocks that a user makes against them to turn on or off some load. For example, ...

How to use ESP8266 ESP-01 as a SENSOR web client

I’m not going to explain in detail what is ESP8266 because if you have found this post I’m sure you already know it. But just in case, it is an awesome cheap board (less than 4$) with built-in wifi communication (802.11 b/g/n), and SPI, UART. You can also use its processor to run your code. Wiring: Use FTDI with 3V3 output. If you face problems with this running on Windows check this link: Unbrick FTDI 232R ...

Cloud Sensor Base-Station

What I want to do I want to create a platform with the capacity to control a large number of sensors and actuators necessary for the hydronponics system outlined in this wiki, and to serve as the central gateway to a cloud-enabled dashboard. The basis for this experiment is the new Arduino Yun which combines an OpenWRT/Linux wifi processor with an Arduino Leonardo Microcontroller. However, the complexity of ...
