Raspberry Pi & Maker goodies
Curated range of best of breed products.
The SparkFun Soil Moisture Sensor is a simple breakout for measuring the moisture in soil and similar materials.
The TMP102 is an easy-to-use digital temperature sensor from Texas Instruments. The TMP102 breakout allows you to easily incorporate the digital temperature sensor into your project.
Use the SparkFun OpenPIR sensor to detect motion in a small/local area –– they’re the sensor of choice in security systems, home automation, and proximity-sensing applications.
The CCS811 Air Quality Breakout is a digital gas sensor solution that senses a wide range of Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs), including equivalent carbon dioxide (eCO2) and metal oxide (MOX) levels.
The SparkFun 9DoF Sensor Stick is an easy-to-use 9 Degrees of Freedom IMU. The Sensor Stick deftly utilizes the LSM9DS1 motion-sensing system-in-a-chip. It houses a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer – nine degrees of freedom (9DoF) in a single IC!
The SparkFun Photon Weather Shield is an easy to use add-on board that grants you access to barometric pressure, relative humidity, and temperature. There are also connections on this shield to optional sensors such as wind speed, direction, rain gauge and soil readings!
This basic piezo sensor from Measurement Specialties is often used for flex, touch, vibration and shock measurements. A small AC and large voltage (up to +/-90V) is created when the film moves back and forth. A simple resistor should get the voltage down to ADC levels. Can also be used for impact sensing or a flexible switch.
The SparkFun MPU-9250 IMU Breakout features the latest 9-axis MEMS sensor from InvenSense.
Using our muscles to control things is the way that most of us are accustomed to doing it. We push buttons, pull levers, move joysticks … but what if we could take the buttons, levers and joysticks out of the equation?
This is a simple-to-use Carbon Monoxide (CO) sensor, suitable for sensing CO concentrations in the air. The MQ-7 can detect CO-gas concentrations anywhere from 20 to 2000ppm.
