Topic: Sensor Compatible with MKR1000 (Read 815 times) previous topic - next topic



I want to do condition monitoring with my MKR1000 on 3 factors, Temperature, Noise and Vibration.
What are the best sensor option for these 3 parameters which are compatible with MKR1000 and suitable in harsh environment conditions also.

Temperature depends a little on how accurate you want it and most of all what are those  "harsh" conditions ?
The exact conditions will often determine the sensor.

So...Chemical ? Heat ? Noise ? Vibration ? High LEL ? Do you need  "intrinsic" safe items ? etc etc etc.

The question is much to vague to even make any sort of guess.

In most cases you can also get the same sensor but suitable for "X" conditions.
Point also to take into account is cost.
Once you enter some conditions then that sensor may cost many times that of the cheap Chinese version.
Other factors might be how close to the sensor is the MKR going to be ?
If its a long way then buffer amps may also be required.

IP ratings come with cost too as well as other specifications that must be adhered to to stay safe and maintain a standard.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
