For anyone interested in Electrical Engineering you should really check out EEWeb it contains numerous resources: news, forums, tools, articles, videos and more. The web based tools alone are a great resource for any engineer but the constant flow of new articles and projects is a great source of knowledge and information.
We are proud to announce the availability of the ChipCap2 Temperature and Humidity Sensor Breakout Board. This low cost board comes with a lot of great features:
- Fully Calibrated & Temperature Compensated
- Digital i2c communication
- Built-in Alarm function and logic pins.
- Once alarm values are set it can work without a microcontroller.
- Precision & Accuracy (±2%RH, ±0.3°C, 14 bit )
- Humidity Range: 0 ~ 100% RH - Response Time: 7s
- Temperature Range: -40°C ~ 125°C - Response Time: 5s
- Low Current Consumption
- Reliable in Harsh Environments
