Experience Level: Intermediate Time Required: 2 Hours
This project requires understanding of how to read a circuit schematic. The Ardweeny has its own included instructions and will need to be assembled first before it is installed onto the protoboard. The circuit board and relay will be housed in an ABS plastic enclosure, so the presentation on the protoboard is not important. 10 feet of stranded hook-up wire is included for making short connections from the relay to the board or supply to relay, etc. The color of the wire is not indicative of the polarity or signal transmitted or supplied.

Step 2: Ardweeny
Step 3: Breadboarding
You will need to make wire or solder jumper connections from the Ardweeny to the pin headers for the sensors. You will also need a location on the board for the incoming 5V power and ground connections.
