Infra Red Infrared Proximity Sensor Photo Interrupter Infrared Emitters and Detectors Description: Infrared proximity sensor made by Sharp. Part # GP2Y0A21YK has an analog output that varies from 3.1V at 10cm to 0.4V at 80cm. The sensor has a Japanese Solderless Terminal (JST) Connector. We recommend purchasing the related pigtail below or soldering wires directly to the back of the module. Description: This sensor is composed of an infrared emitter on one upright and a shielded infrared detector on the other. By emitting a beam of infrared light from one upright to the other, the sensor can detect when an object passes between the uprights, breaking the beam. Used for many applications including optical limit switches, pellet dispensing, general object detection, etc. Gap width = 10mm INST. Kerem Odabaşı - YTU - Interactive Telecomunication Design Dept.

Magnetic Hall Effect Sensor Description: The US1881 is an integrated Hall effect latched sensor. That's nice but what does it do? Holding a magnet near the sensor will cause the output pin to toggle. This makes for a robust presence sensor. A reed sensor also works nicely, but can be limited by the glass encapsulation and size. A hall effect sensor is much smaller, but can handle less current than a reed switch. Features: Simple I2C interface 2.7 to 5.2V supply range 1 to 20Hz selectable update rate True drop-in solution 0.5 degree heading resolution 1 degree repeatability Supply current : 3V Compass Module INST.

Temperature Digital Temperature Sensor Description: This is a breakout board for the incredibly small TMP102 digital temperature sensor. The TMP102 is a digital sensor (I2C a.k.a. TWI), has a resolution of °C, and is accurate up to 0.5°C. The sensor requires very low-current, and is loaded with features. Description: Melexis' MLX90614ESF- BAA is an infrared thermometer designed for non-contact temperature sensing. An internal 17-bit ADC and a powerful DSP contribute to the MLX90614's high accuracy and resolution. It has a huge number of applications including body temperature measurment and movement detection.

Weather Humidity Sensor Description: This is a breakout board for Honeywell's HIH-4030 humidity sensor. The HIH-4030 measures relative humidity (%RH) and delivers it as an analog output voltage. You can connect the output of the sensor directly to an ADC on a microcontroller; and, thanks to the sensor's near linear voltage output, the data is very easy to process. Barometric Pressure Sensor Description: The SCP1000-D01 is a great IC - now you can play with it! This is a simple breakout board bringing the SPI interface pins to a 0.1" header. Please note, we now stock the latest ASIC rev C (IC label 'D01'). The SCP1000 is the very first absolute pressure sensor on the market to use MEMS technology to grant 17-bit resolution. Under ideal conditions, this sensor can detect the pressure difference within a 9cm column of air. INST. Kerem Odabaşı - YTU - Interactive Telecomunication Design Dept. Weather Meters Description: This is a simple weather station that includes an anemometer, wind vane, and rain gauge. Includes mounting hardware and RJ11 connections to the sensors. The anemometer uses a reed switch, so simple frequency detection can be used to measure wind speed. The wind vane uses a potentiometer to detect wind direction. The rain gauge acts as a switch that closes at measured increments. Please see the datasheet for more information.
