Introduction: Solar Tracking Weather Station
This Instructable will give you the basic guidelines for replicating my project. This is a combination of two Instructables I saw, and I decided to put them together. Check it out!
Step 1: Materials, Wiring and Coding
Board: Arduino Mega 2560
Assorted Arduino Jumpers
NOTE ABOUT 3D PRINTING:
Rain module- 5v, GND, A0
Soil Moisture- 5v, GND, A1
Temperature/Humidity- 5v, GND, D31
Barometric: 3.3v, GND, SDA (20 on my board), SCL (21 on my board)
Calibrating these was difficult for me. The board in the picture is an Uno. Just follow where I have pins in the Instructable, the purpose if the image is to show you what the breadboard looks like. I did not use potentiometers.
Left down- 5v, A8
Left up- 5v, A9
Right up- 5v, A10
Right down- 5v, A11
Vertical- 5v, GND, D35
Horiz- 5v, GND, D33
Step 2: Pack It Up!
Step 2 was pretty intense, I get it. Heck, its how to make the thing. Now all that's left is to pack it up in the box!
Leave the sensors out,
Send all the wires through the opening of the box. You will not be able to plug the battery pack in yet with this Instructable as you will need to use the data port to view the serial monitor data. GSM shield with text notifications to come later.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
