TPH Board

TPH Board – the Temperature Pressure Humidity Sensor Boardsodaq-tph-board

The TPH-board is a new sensor board for measuring the Temperature, Pressure and the Humidity. This board has the Sensirion SHT21 humidity sensor and the Bosch Sensortec BMP180 pressure sensor (Barometer) (both capable of measuring temperature).

Both the SHT21 and the BMP180 are connected through the I2C/TWI with the easy Grove-header. Pull-up resistors are available on the TPH-board, but if undesired you can disconnect them through the cut-trace on the back.

TPH-board specifications:
  • Size: 26 * 19 mm
  • 3 volt compatible
  • Grove compatible
  • Sensirion SHT21 humidity sensor
  • Bosch Sensortec BMP180 pressure sensor
  • Double temperature sensor (SHT21 & BMP180)
  • Operating temp: range (-40 -> +85 )degrees Celcius
  • I2C pull-up resistors with cut-trace

Sketch

We use two libraries for one for BMP sensor and other for SHT21 sensor.

#include <Wire.h>
#include <Sodaq_BMP085.h>
#include <Sodaq_SHT2x.h> 
// Autonomo Serial Monitor
#define debugSerial SerialUSB 
//TPH BMP sensor
Sodaq_BMP085 bmp; 
void setup() {  
// put your setup code here, to run once:  debugSerial.begin(57600);  
debugSerial.println("Sending payload: TempSHT21T, TempBMP, PressureBMP, HumiditySHT21T");  
setupTPH();
} 
void loop() {  
// put your main code here, to run repeatedly:  
String reading = takeTPHReading();  
debugSerial.println(reading);
} 
void setupTPH(){  
//Initialise the wire protocol for the TPH sensors  Wire.begin();  
//Initialise the TPH BMP sensor  
bmp.begin();
} 
String takeTPHReading(){  
//Create a String type data record in csv format  
//TempSHT21, TempBMP, PressureBMP, HumiditySHT21  
String data = String(SHT2x.GetTemperature())  + ", "//BMPTemp is commented out, the data will be to long if you also send batt volt.  
data += String(bmp.readTemperature()) + ", ";  
data += String(bmp.readPressure() / 100)  + ", ";  
data += String(SHT2x.GetHumidity());  
return data;
}
