M8 Sensor Temperature/Humidity

The M8 Temperature/Humidity sensor provides an easy way to measure temperature and humidity with the Tracker One. It connects to the M8 connector on the outside of the Tracker One.

  • IP 67 waterproof rating
  • Durable, weatherproof, metal casing
  • ±0.5°C temperature accuracy
  • ±2% relative humidity accuracy
  • Temperature range -22°C to 80°C
  • 120 cm. (47.25 inch) cable
  • The Tracker One preserves its IP67 waterproof rating with the M8 connector in use

Details

The sensor (in the metal case) is a weatherproof Sensiron SHT-31D, I2C temperature and humidity sensor.

The sensor is powered by the CAN_PWR output on the M8 connector. It can be powered down when not sensing temperature to reduce power consumption, if desired.

The cable assembly contains a 3.3V voltage regulator, as the I2C interface on the Tracker One is limited to 3.3V.
