Grove - Barometer (High-Accuracy)

This Grove - Barometer (High-Accuracy) Sensor features a HP206C high-accuracy chip to detect barometric pressure ,Altimeter and temperature. It can widely measure pressure ranging from 300mbar~1200mbar, with a super high accuracy of 0.01mbar(0.1m) in ultra-high resolution mode.The chip only accepts 1.8V to 3.6V input voltage. However, with outer circuit added, this module becomes compatible with 3.3V and 5V. Therefore, it can be used on Arduino/Seeeduino or Seeeduino Stalker without modification. It is designed to be connected directly to a micro-controller via the I2C bus.

Features

  • Digital two wire (I2C) interface
  • Command-based Reading, Compensated (Optional)
  • Programmable Events and Interrupt Controls
  • Full Data Compensation
  • Wide barometric pressure range
  • Flexible supply voltage range
  • Ultra-low power consumption
  • Altitude Resolution down to 0.01 meter
  • Temperature measurement included
  • I2C Address: 0x76

Note

If you want to use multiplue I2C devices, please refer to Software I2C.

Caution

The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's hardware or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library.

Hardware Overview

Getting started

Play with Arduino

Barometric condition is one of the criteria used to predict coming change in weather and altitude above sea level. Here is a demo to show you how to read the barometric data from this Grove - Barometer Sensor.

Hardware

  • Step 1. Prepare the below stuffs:
Seeeduino V4.2 Base Shield Grove-Barometer-High-Accuracy

  • Step 2. Connect Grove-Barometer-High-Accuracy to port I2C of Grove-Base Shield.
  • Step 3. Plug Grove - Base Shield into Seeeduino.
  • Step 4. Connect Seeeduino to PC via a USB cable.
