Need to measure precise pH? This kit includes everything you need including buffer solutions for calibration, pH probe, and even a board to connect directly to your favorite microcontroller. This is laboratory-grade equipment and not just a toy or educational kit.
All you need to do is follow the included instructions for calibrating the probe and connect it to the included pH Circuit. The pH Circuit outputs data from the probe over serial, so it couldn't be much easier to use.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

At first I thought it might be a challenge to set this up, as I haven't ever connected anything to GPIO or UART (I'm using a pi), but after about an hour of looking at the associated documentation, I had it up and reading fine.

This was super easy to hook up and calibrate. I used the i2c on my Raspberry PI. It is fully waterproof and I have been using it to monitor the PH in my aquarium.
I ordered this kit after reviewing a lot of other probes. One might consider this probe expensive but it's high quality and the Atlas support is first rate.
If you're considering this kit, also consider purchasing the Atlas shield built for the Arduino. The shield simplifies the connection of the EZO Circuit and attachment of a temperature probe.
It is a great product, the only thing that they missed to say is that there is one conector on the market that you can use to connect the BNC Connector and the PH circuit together.
