Atlas Scientific is on a mission to make high-quality sensors for environmental monitoring available to everyday hackers and makers. All of their kits are easy to calibrate and connect to your microcontroller-based project.
You know what's exciting? Oh yes, data-logging. No, seriously, by logging data in the field for later analysis, you can generate some really informative results! There are a lot of ways to go about logging your data, but Atlas Scientific has put together a really simple and compact solution for those times when you just need to get a probe logging and deployed.
The ENV-32X data logger is specifically designed to record strings of data up to 128 characters long. Each string, terminated with a carriage return, is saved to one of 32,760 separate and individual pages in memory. And after you've logged all your data and you're ready to retrieve it, the ENV-32X supports two different organized read-back methods.
Boasting low power-consumption, 32Mb of memory and blazing fast read-write operation, the ENV-32X is a packaged solution for logging metrics in the field.
Note: The Arduino example code shows the logger hooked up to 5V. This is incorrect, it needs to be connected to 3.3V.
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.
