TinoviSoilSensor

A Particle library for TinoviSoilSensor

Welcome to your library!

To get started, modify the sources in src. Rename the example folder inside examples to a more meaningful name and add additional examples in separate folders.

To compile your example you can use particle compile examples/usage command in Particle CLI or use our Desktop IDE.

Libraries can also depend on other libraries. To add a dependency use particle library add or library management in Desktop IDE.

After the library is done you can upload it with particle library upload or Upload command in the IDE. This will create a private (only visible by you) library that you can use in other projects. If you wish to make your library public, use particle library publish or Publish command.

TODO: update this README

Usage

Connect XYZ hardware, add the TinoviSoilSensor library to your project and follow this simple example:

#include "TinoviSoilSensor.h"
TinoviSoilSensor tinoviSoilSensor;

void setup() {
tinoviSoilSensor.begin();
}

void loop() {
tinoviSoilSensor.process();
}

See the examples folder for more details.

Documentation

Interfacing from Arduino

WARNING!!! use 3.3 voltage levels only, more voltage will damage device

###wiring to Arduiono:

Arduiono pin #3V3 - sensor red (3.3v)

Arduiono pin #A4 - sensor green (SDA)

Arduiono pin #A5 - sensor white (SCL)

Arduiono pin #GND - sensor black (GND)

pin #GND - shield (GND)

SDA and SCL lines requires pull-up resitors to 3.3v line, we recommend to use 1.8K resistors, because of long wiring to i2c sensor.

API
SVCS3();
//pass i2c addres of sensor, default 0x63
int init(int address);
// update i2c address of sesnor
int newAddress(byte newAddr);
// hold sesnor in air or put in dry soil and call  (offset DP = 1 or VWC=0%)
int calibrationAir();
// submerge sesnor in the water or soil with water (offset DP = 80 or VWC=100%)
int calibrationWater();
// submerge sesnor in EC calibration fluid or soil with known EC and supply correc EC vaue in
int calibrationEC(int16_t valueUs);
//initate reading, then need to wait for 100ms to let reading to finish
int newReading();
float getE25();
float getEC();
float getTemp();
float getVWC();
//get all values, supply float[4] , return 0-DP;1-EC;2-Temp;3-VWC
void getData(float retVal[]);

This sample software demonstrates hot to read data from sensor.

Sensor default I2C address is 0x63.

Contributing

Here's how you can make changes to this library and eventually contribute those changes back.

To get started, clone the library from GitHub to your local machine.

Change the name of the library in library.properties to something different. You can add your name at then end.

Modify the sources in and with the new behavior.

To compile an example, use particle compile examples/usage command in Particle CLI or use our Desktop IDE.

After your changes are done you can upload them with particle library upload or Upload command in the IDE. This will create a private (only visible by you) library that you can use in other projects. Do particle library add TinoviSoilSensor_myname to add the library to a project on your machine or add the TinoviSoilSensor_myname library to a project on the Web IDE or Desktop IDE.

At this point, you can create a GitHub pull request with your changes to the original library.

If you wish to make your library public, use particle library publish or Publish command.
