Altitude Pressure Sensor with EFM Processor and Dual RS232 Interfaces

  • 1895

We currently have 5 in stock.

Description:

This module contains an MPL311A5 Altitude Pressure Sensor. It measures barometric pressure and outputs the pressure in Pascals. It also has an altitude mode and will output altitude with a 1 foot (30 centimeters) resolution. It also measures temperature very accurately.

The module also contains an EFM32ZG108 Gecko low power microcontroller and two RS232 serial ports allowing it to be daisy chained in a network. Pre-Programmed for use in an openHAB Home Automation system or can be Re-Programmed for other uses.
