    I hate asking for help on an obsoleted product, but I have one and I would like to get it working enough to use it.

    I also have the same problem with the libraries… Class SHT1x has no member connectionReset

    I pulled the libraries from the distribution. Any thoughts ?

    another head slap momemnt :)

    Thanks. That would work perfectly and be very simple.

    I would like to use 4 of these from a car battery. Anyone have an off the shelf power converter recommendation ? Thanks

    I’m still a bit confused. Does sparkfun sell them or must I got to Adafruit/Newark for these ?

    Before I ask what may be my last question on the board, I have to say you folks have been amazingly patient with me on this project. Thank you.

    So my (hopefully) last question is - where is the solder jumper that I need to break to add my external light sensor ? I just want to make sure I cut the right trace

    Thanks

    I went ahead and did it and it works fine. I am concerned that I have different temperature readings from sensors side by side, but I’ll calibrate.

    Thanks

    I now have both BMP085’s connected and the XCLR working. But the values are off. I think I need to run the init before each one to get the calibration values.

    Any harm in running // initialize BMP085 pressure sensor if (pressure_sensor.begin() == 0) error(1);

    Just before reading them ? Thanks as always

    Thank you. That is perfect. I saw that code in there, but didn’t quite get it. That makes it clear. I only have about 6 ft between the board and the bottom so I’ll adjust accordingly. Thanks for the tips.

    Again, thank you for the suggestions.

    Be a bit patient, new to some of the technologies here.

    How do I address a second BMP085 sensor ?

    I’m deploying a sparkfun weather station as part of a water quality initiative. I’ve modified the code to work for what we need, but I need to add two more sensors to the package. The one that is causing me the most concern is water depth. The tide drives change in the water level.

    I’m planning on using a BMP085 inside a collapsible bladder at the bottom of the lagoon, and then measuring the pressure inside the bag as the water level moves up and down. Depth varies from 1 ft to 4 ft.

    The board has one BMP085 on it already for the air pressure. So I am adding a second. I can’t quite figure out how to address the second sensor !

    Any suggestions welcome. Not my most experienced area.

    Compiled perfectly. Thanks
