Octopus Rain-Steam Sensor
Octopus Electronic Bricks, you can use them build electronics projects just as easy as piling bricks. By using Octopus electronic bricks, you may connect Arduino/Freaduino compatible boards easily with various digital, analog and I2C/Uart interfaces. These the breadboard-less firm connection are prepared to extensive modules like poteniometers, sensors, relays, servos…even buttons, just plug and play.
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.
- Power supply: 3.3v or 5v
- Output voltage signal: 0~4.5v or 0~3.0v
- Pin definition:
—Analog output(Yellow wire)
- Size: 30x20x6mm
The connector is not waterproof, please be careful not to put the connector directly in water.
- Simple rain detector
- Cheap steam level switch
- Touch sensor based on humidity
Pin definition and Rating
- 3P buckled wires connector
