Description: It’s not the heat but the humidity that gets you, at least that’s what they say. Really, both are important, what you need is a sensor that combines humidity and temperature readings. How about this Honeywell HumidIcon Digital Humidity/Temperature Sensor?
The HIH6130 is a digital output-type relative humidity (RH) and temperature sensor combined in the same package. This allows the RH measurement to be temperature compensated and provides a second, standalone temperature sensor output.
This breakout board gives you standard 0.1" spaced headers for each of the pins on this SOIC package, making it a lot easier to prototype your next humidity-sensing application. Communication with the HIH6130 is easily achieved over I2C using libraries like “Wire.h”

This will be a short review. What can I say? I powered it up and it works perfectly. The readings and status bits all operate as described. I drive my peripherals directly with FPGAs and so have no use for C libraries. So I appreciate the detailed datasheet(s) with accurate interface information. I kind of wish I had noticed the pullup resistors on the board, as I have other I2C peripherals on the same I2C bus and already had pullups installed. Oh well, I suppose it kind of makes sense as it compensates for the extra load added to the bus by decreasing the rise times. I’m sure it’s more compensation than I needed however. I guess I can always remove them. Thanks for offering this product and please continue to make it available.
I’ve been a fan of MAXIM / Dallas Semiconductor 1-wire products for more than a decade and this is my first use of I2C. Easy to use and many python libraries available for use on my RPi2.
