Intro: Small Temperature and Lightness Sensor Shield
For my wifi weather station (Arduino + ESP8266) I need an temperature and lightness sensor shield. Therefore I designed the following one.
I will publish the whole weather station later, too. Actually I'm still working on the software. But the last step shows a picture of the final design.
Step 1: Parts
To build this weather station you need some parts:
- 1x stripboard 4x5 vertical
- 2x Resistor 10 kΩ
- 1x headers 4x1 male 90°
- 1x light-dependent resistor (LDR) - I use a GL5537
- 1x thermistor - I use R0=10 kΩ, beta=3950
- one short wire
Step 2: Build Up
I will not show the whole build up of the shield because it's easy soldering. Only the steps:
- Insert the cut in the breadboard
- solder all parts onto the right place
Step 3: Outlook
Here's a brief look to the final weater station measuring
- air pressure
and send the data via wifi to thingspeak.com! And all combined on a stripboard size of 5 to 6 cm.
So, follow me for the further instructables.
