The MS8607 from TE is an impressive combination pressure, humidity, temperature (PHT) sensor with accuracy of ±2mbar pressure, ±3% humidity, and ±1°C. Perfect for sensing general weather conditions the MS8607 really shines for high altitude, low pressure applications. Capable of sensing down to 10mbar, this pressure sensor separates itself from many other I2C pressure sensors like the BME280. The MS8607 is simple to use and gives the user some very powerful readings with very little power and conversion time.
Hook up is a breeze with as the breakout board is using the Qwiic connect system. We have a fully formed Arduino library and extensive examples to get you up and running quickly. The breakout board has built-in 2.2kΩ pullup resistors for I2C communications. If you’re hooking up multiple I2C devices on the same bus, you may want to disable these resistors.
The MS8607 PHT Sensor can also be automatically detected, scanned, configured, and logged using the OpenLog Artemis datalogger system. No programming, soldering, or setup required!
NOTE: The I2C address of the Pressure Sensor Portion is 0x76 and is hardware defined. The I2C address of the Humidity Sensor Portion is 0x40 and is hardware defined. A multiplexer/Mux is required to communicate to multiple MS8607 sensors on a single bus. If you need to use more than one MS8607 sensor consider using the Qwiic Mux Breakout.
