A change of sensors has been implemented for our Weather Shields!
Hello, and welcome to another exciting installment of the Friday Product Post! With the change of seasons right around the corner, we decided to improve two of your favorite products. Today we bring you the new and improved Weather Shield and Photon Weather Shield. Let’s see what Feldi has to show us today!
Coming up with weather puns is a breeze.
The SparkFun Weather Shield is an easy-to-use Arduino shield that grants you access to barometric pressure, relative humidity, luminosity and temperature. There are also connections on this shield to optional sensors such as wind speed, direction, rain gauge and GPS for location and super accurate timing.
The biggest (and most important) change you are going to find with this revision is the removal of the HTU21D IC and the addition of the Si7021 Humidity/Temperature Sensor. We really like the Si7021, and we hope you do too!
The SparkFun Photon Weather Shield has received the same change as its Arduino counterpart above. Everything you know and love about this shield, though, hasn’t changed. It still works with the Particle Photon and still provides you with weather-sensing features.
That’s it for this week, folks. Make sure to check back next Friday for even more new products. We have a full plate. See you then!
