A sensor functions as a device or component that can detect or analyse any relevant change or happening in the surrounding.In this kit you are provided with a whole set of sensors that are varying in nature.
This kit includes a sensor for just about every job. With everything included in this kit, you’ll be able to sense gesture, humidity, temperature, motion, touch, sound, altitude, acceleration and more!
Do you have a good understanding of various sensors or need a variety of them for a project? This kit includes a sensor for just about every job. With everything included in this kit, you’ll be able to sense gesture, humidity, temperature, motion, touch, sound, altitude, acceleration and more! These are some of our favorite sensors from each category.
This version of the kit has received a complete overhaul! Check out theKit Includes section below for a complete list of what is included in this kit to find out what has changed.
This huge assortment of sensors makes an amazing gift for that very special electronics enthusiast in your life!
Flex Sensor - As the sensor is flexed, the resistance across the sensor increases. Useful for sensing motion or positioning
SoftPot- These are very thin variable potentiometers. By pressing on various positions along the strip, you vary the resistance.
9 Degrees of Freedom IMU Breakout - LSM9DS1- This chip provides a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer. Connect this board over I2C or SPI and get started using one of the three sensors or using all three together to determine 3D orientation.
RGB and Gesture Sensor - APDS-9960- This board does a little bit of everything. You can measure ambient light or color as well as detect proximity and do gesture sensing all over I2C.
Humidity and Temperature Sensor - Si7021 - A tiny (0.6"x0.6") board that will provide humidity readings as well as very accurate temperature readings. This I2C board is great for weather applications.
Soil Moisture Sensor(with screw terminals) - Ever wonder if your plant needs water? This sensor outputs an analog signal based on the resistance of the soil. Since water is conductive, the soil water content will be reflected in the soil resistance.
Capacitive Touch Breakout - This little board acts great as a non-mechanical button. Use the pad on the board or connect your own input for a great touch button with no moving parts.
Sound Detector - Ever need to know if there is noise in an area? This board will not only tell you, but it will also output amplitude as well as the full audio signal.
IR Receiver Diode- This simple IR receiver will detect an IR signal coming from a standard IR remote control or the IR diode included in the kit.
IR Diode - This LED can handle up to 50mA of current and outputs in the 940-950nm IR spectrum. Use to send signal to talk to the included IR receiver diode or just turn off your neighbor’s TV.
Resistor 10K Ohm 1/6th Watt PTH - 20 Pack - 1/6th Watt, +/- 5% tolerance PTH resistors. Commonly used in breadboards and perf boards, these 10KΩ resistors make excellent pullups, pulldowns and current limiters.
