Temp&Hum 22 Click is a compact add-on board representing temperature and humidity sensing solution. This board features the SHT41A, a 4th generation automotive-grade relative humidity and temperature sensor from Sensirion. The SHT41A is characterized by its high accuracy (±2% RH and ±0.3°C over a wide operating temperature range) and high resolution providing 16-bit data to the host controller with a configurable I2C interface. Also, it is designed for reliable operation in harsh conditions such as condensing environments. This Click board™ is perfectly suitable for automotive and other temperature and humidity-related applications.
Temp&Hum 22 Click as its foundation uses the SHT41A, high-accuracy automotive-grade 16-bit relative humidity and temperature sensor from Sensirion. The SHT41A builds on a wholly new and optimized CMOS chip offering reduced power consumption, accuracy, and a digital I2C interface for the fastest data transfer. It covers extended operating humidity, and temperature ranges from 0 to 100%RH and from -40°C to 125°C with accuracies of ±1%RH and ±0.3°C. The SHT41A's integrated heater allows advanced on-board-diagnostics alongside a reliable operation in harsh conditions such as condensing environments.
The sensor performs best when operated within the recommended average temperature and humidity range of 5-60°C and 20-80%RH. Long-term exposure to conditions outside recommended normal range, especially at high relative humidity, may temporarily offset the RH signal. After returning to the recommended average temperature and humidity range, the sensor will recover to within specifications by itself.
Also, to maximize the over-temperature when using the heater, reduced heat conduction and heat capacity of the mounted sensor is desired. For this reason, the sensor is placed on this Click board™ in a particular position, a piece of a standard PCB with a cutout around the sensor area, increasing the decontamination yield and avoiding excess energy consumption. The PCB layout like this is optimized for minimal thermal heat sink influence.
This Click board™ can be operated only with a 3.3V logic voltage level. The board must perform appropriate logic voltage level conversion before using MCUs with different logic levels. However, the Click board™ comes equipped with a library containing functions and an example code that can be used, as a reference, for further development.
