Looking for a precise solution to monitor humidity and temperature in your room or greenhouse? The SHTC3 breakout board is your answer. This digital sensor provides accurate measurements and a wide temperature range, making it ideal for precise climate data.
Using the I2C communication protocol, this board features two easyC ports, eliminating the need for soldering or distinguishing between SDA and SCL. Its hardware-defined I2C address is set at 0x70, and it operates at 3.3V with an onboard regulator for 5V, boasting low standard current consumption of just 430 µA.
The SHTC3 breakout board pairs seamlessly with Dasduino Core and a 16×2 easyC LCD, allowing you to display temperature and humidity side by side. With easyC connections on all three devices, setup is straightforward. Plus, the board features two mounting holes for secure attachment to your project, and you have the option to solder the provided pins if you prefer not to use the easyC ports.
If you encounter issues, double-check your connections, both on the board and your microcontroller. Ensure the breakout board's I2C address is correctly set to 0x70. If everything appears correct, review your code for potential bugs causing unexpected behaviour.
To prolong the sensor's lifespan, monitor the current passing through the circuit and avoid excessive amounts that could lead to sensor failure. Keep in mind that the sensor is not impact-resistant and may become irreparably damaged if dropped from a significant height or at an unusual angle.
