Sparkfun support will be closed from 3:00PM to 4:15PM on April 27th for a company-wide townhall meeting. We will resume regular hours on the 28th.
Description: The SHT15 Breakout is an easy to use, highly accurate, digital temperature and humidity sensor. This board has been fully calibrated and offers high precision and excellent long-term stability at low cost. The digital CMOSens® technology integrates two sensors and readout circuitry on one single chip. All you need is two lines for 2-wire communication, and you’ll have relative humidity and temperature readings to help you sense the world around you!
The two sensors built into the SHT15 have been seamlessly coupled to a 14bit analog to digital converter and a serial interface circuit resulting in superior signal quality, fast response time, and a strong resistance to external disturbances. Additionally, the on board SHT15 features a 0-100% RH measurement range with a temperature accuracy of +/- 0.3°C @ 25°C. There are only four pins that need to be hooked up in order to start using this sensor in a project. One for VCC, one for GND, and the two data lines SDA and SCL.

I’m kind of a newbie to Raspberry PI. This was easy to wire up and the code examples I found were easy to modify. But I wanted to create a permanent device. I ended up soldering my leads directly to the SHT-15 and using pin connectors to attach to the Pi. That all worked. I put the Pi in an enclosure and mounted the SHT-15 onto the outside of the enclosure with (roughly) ¾" standoffs. Configured like this it reads 4-5" hotter than actual temperature. Not sure why. I could move the sensor farther from the Pi enclosure but I’ve not come up with an idea that works and wouldn’t make the sensor vulnerable to being detached.
