New Product Post- Octopus Rain/Steam Sensor

Hi, friends, we had another new sensors to release again. With them, no matter temperature alarm, humidity testing, or the magnetic field direction testing, acceleration measuring, all can be achieved to cool your projects. What are the splendid new products? They are Octopus Rain/Steam Sensor,  Temperature And Humidity Sensor , Octopus 9DOF MODULE , Octopus 3-Axis GYRO Sensor ,  Octopus 3-Axis Digital Compass Sensor . Have a look at them.  

Octopus Rain/Steam Sensor

Description:

This is a Rain/steam sensor from ElecFreaks. This steam sensor can be connected to the Arduino IO Expansion shield directly. The output voltage will increase when the humidity of the sensor surface goes up. You even could use it as a touch panel. Warning: The connector is not waterproof, please be careful not to put the connector directly in water. Interestingly, it also be a touch pad in your project.

Parameter:

  • Power supply: 3.3v or 5v
  • Output voltage signal: 0~4.5v or 0~3.0v
  • Pin definition: —Analog output(Yellow wire) —GND(Black wire) —Power(Red wire)
  • Size: 30x20x6mm

Applications:

  • Simple rain detector
  • Cheap steam level switch
  • Touch sensor based on humidity

Temperature And Humidity Sensor 

 

Description:

Temperature and humidity sensor is a module based on DHT11 digital temperature and humidity sensing element. Simple design,and sensitive to the ambient temperature and humidity changes, it can be used for temperature alarm, humidity testing and other works. 3P Octopus Bricks Interface,input 5V - GND, S for signal output.

Features:

  • Power supply needs: 5V
  • Interface type: Digital
  • Pin Definition: 1-Signal 2-VCC 3-GND
  • Fast response and High sensitivity
  • Simple drive circuit
  • Stable and long life

Octopus 9DOF MODULE

Description:

9 DOF sensor module is a triple version for ITG3205 triaxial gyroscope + HMC5883L triaxial magnetic field + ADXL345 triaxial acceleration. These three sensors can be used for measuring angles,the magnetic field direction,tilt, acceleration respectively,and now we can combine them on one board, so that we can achieve three sensor functional tests on one board. And our module requires only a simple 4-wire I2C interface connected with Arduino UNO, which can achieve functional tests, very simply and conveniently.

Features:

  • Power supply needs: 5V
  • Fast response and High sensitivity
  • Simple drive circuit
  • Stable and long life

Connecting method:

  • GND-GND VCC-5V SDA-A4 SCL-A5
