The SparkFun Weather Shield is an easy-to-use Arduino shield with sensors for measuring barometric pressure, relative humidity, luminosity, and temperature.
SparkFun’s Weather Shield for Arduino can be used to build an Arduino-controlled weather monitoring station that measures barometric pressure, relative humidity, luminosity, and temperature. This shield incorporates a HTU21D humidity sensor, MPL3115A2 barometric pressure sensor, and ALS-PT19 light sensor and relies on the HTU21D and MPL3115A2 Arduino libraries. The shield has a built-in 3.3 V voltage regulator that lets it operate at 3 V to 10 V.
For documentation and resources to help you use this weather shield, including the HTU21D and MP3115A2 Arduino libraries, see the guide on SparkFun’s site. Datasheets for the individual sensors can be found under the Resources tab.
This shield ships with all of its surface-mount parts populated. However, header pins are not included. Our 0.1″ male headers are compatible, but if you plan on stacking multiple shields, we recommend our stackable 0.1″ female header set for Arduino shields.
An Arduino is not included.
Note: SparkFun calls this product the “Weather Shield” SKU: DEV-12081. It replaces the older USB Weather Board V3.
