Grove - I2C High Accuracy Temp&Humi Sensor(SHT35)

Grove - I2C High Accuracy Temp&Humi Sensor(SHT35) is based on SHT3x-DIS, which is the next generation of Sensirion’s temperature and humidity sensors. It builds on a new CMOSens® sensor chip that is at the heart of Sensirion’s new humidity and temperature platform. The SHT3x-DIS has increased intelligence, reliability and improved accuracy specifications compared to its predecessor. Its functionality includes enhanced signal processing, two distinctive and user selectable I2C addresses and communication speeds of up to 1 MHz.


  • High accuracy of ±1.5 %RH and ±0.1 °C
  • Fully calibrated, linearized, and temperature compensated digital output
  • I2C Interface with communication speeds up to 1MHz and two user selectable addresses
  • Very fast start-up and measurement time

Hardware Overview

Pin Out



This module is based on SHT35, the input voltage of this chip range from 2.15v-5.5v, so you can use both 3.3v and 5v pin of Arduino to supply for this module.

Platforms Supported

Arduino Raspberry Pi BeagleBone Wio LinkIt ONE


The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's software 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.

1 Please plug the USB cable gently, otherwise you may damage the port. Please use the USB cable with 4 wires inside, the 2 wires cable can't transfer data. If you are not sure about the wire you have, you can click here to buy

2 Each Grove module comes with a Grove cable when you buy. In case you lose the Grove cable, you can click here to buy.

  • Step 1. Connect the Grove - I2C High Accuracy Temp&Humi Sensor(SHT35) to port I2C of Grove-Base Shield.

  • Step 2. Plug Grove - Base Shield into Seeeduino.

  • Step 3. Connect Seeeduino to PC via a USB cable.


If we don't have Grove Base Shield, We also can directly connect this module to Seeeduino as below.

If this is the first time you work with Arduino, we strongly recommend you to see Getting Started with Arduino before the start.

  • Step 1. Download the Grove-SHT35 Sensor Library from Github.

  • Step 2. Refer to How to install library to install library for Arduino.

  • Step 3. Restart the Arduino IDE. Open the example, you can open it in the following three ways:

    1. Open it directly in the Arduino IDE via the path: File → Examples → Grove Temperature sensor SHT35 → basic_demo.

    2. Open it in your computer by click the basic_demo.ino which you can find in the folder XXXX\Arduino\libraries\Seeed_SHT35-master\examples\basic_demo, XXXX is the location you installed the Arduino IDE.

    3. Or, you can just click the icon in upper right corner of the code block to copy the following code into a new sketch in the Arduino IDE.

#include "Seeed_SHT35.h"

/*SAMD core*/
  #define SDAPIN  20
  #define SCLPIN  21
  #define RSTPIN  7
  #define SERIAL SerialUSB
  #define SDAPIN  A4
  #define SCLPIN  A5
  #define RSTPIN  2
  #define SERIAL Serial

SHT35 sensor(SCLPIN);

void setup()
    SERIAL.println("serial start!!");
      SERIAL.println("sensor init failed!!!");

void loop()
     u16 value=0;
    u8 data[6]={0};
    float temp,hum;
      SERIAL.println("read temp failed!!");
      SERIAL.println("   ");
      SERIAL.println("   ");
      SERIAL.println("   ");
      SERIAL.print("temperature =");

      SERIAL.print("humidity =");

      SERIAL.println("   ");
      SERIAL.println("   ");
      SERIAL.println("   ");


The library file may be updated. This code may not be applicable to the updated library file, so we recommend that you use the first two methods.

  • Step 4. Upload the demo. If you do not know how to upload the code, please check How to upload code.

  • Step 5. Open the Serial Monitor of Arduino IDE by click Tool-> Serial Monitor. Or tap the Ctrl+Shift+M key at the same time. Set the baud rate to 115200.


If every thing goes well, when you open the Serial Monitor , it may show as below:

serial start!!
temperature =24.10
humidity =51.09

temperature =24.10
humidity =50.96

temperature =24.10
humidity =51.04

temperature =24.11
humidity =51.09

        temperature = data[0] * 256 + data[1]
        celsius = -45 + (175 * temperature / 65535.0)
        humidity = 100 * (data[3] * 256 + data[4]) / 65535.0
        if data[2] != CRC(data[:2]):
            raise RuntimeError("temperature CRC mismatch")
        if data[5] != CRC(data[3:5]):
            raise RuntimeError("humidity CRC mismatch")
        return celsius, humidity
