Sensors are the eyes and ears of electronics, they monitor external stimuli such as sound, light, pressure, and heat, and convert them into signals for your microcontroller to process.

We've got all kinds of sensors available for your project, so make sure that you pick the correct one for your hardware. If you get stuck, be sure to reach out to us via our forum.

Take a look at some of our sensor tutorials:

Kits

If you're starting out, or just looking to experiment with new tech, a kit can be the way to go and it allows you to try out heaps of different sensors.

Accelerometers

Accelerometers are the basis of all motion control. They allow you to sense both static and dynamic acceleration and are easy to integrate into your project.

Some important factors to take into account when buying an accelerometer for your project:

  • Sensitivity (some have variable options)
  • Resolution
  • Communication method (eg. I2C or SPI)

Gyros

Gyroscopic sensors are handy little devices as they allow you to measure angular rotation with selectable resolutions using a standard microcontroller.

We've got two different boards which use the same chip, however, the Adafruit one has a nicer silkscreen guide and pin labelling if that's what your after. Alternatively, the Pololu board is just as good, but in a different form factor, without the fancy silkscreen.

  1. L3GD20H 3-Axis Gyro Carrier with Voltage Regulator
    SKU: POLOLU-2129 Brand: Pololu
    This sensor is a carrier/breakout board for the ST L3GD20H three-axis gyroscope, which measures the angular rates of rotation about the roll (X), pitch (Y), and yaw (Z) axes. Angular velocity measurements with a configurable range of ±245°/s, ±500°/s, or ±2000°/s can be read through a digital I²C or SPI interface. The board has a 3.3 V linear regulator and integrated level-shifters that allow it to work over an input voltage range of 2.5 V to 5.5 V, and the 0.1″ pin spacing makes it easy to use with standard solderless breadboards and 0.1″ perfboards.

The reflectance measurement is output as an analog voltage. This sensor is sold in packs of two units.

  2. QTR-8RC Reflectance Sensor Array
    SKU: POLOLU-961 Brand: Pololu
    This sensor module has 8 IR LED/phototransistor pairs mounted on a 0.375" pitch, making it a great detector for a line-following robot. Pairs of LEDs are arranged in series to halve current consumption, and a MOSFET allows the LEDs to be turned off for additional sensing or power-savings options. Each sensor provides a separate digital I/O-measurable output.

  1. SoftPot Membrane Potentiometer - 50mm
    SKU: SEN-08680 Brand: Sparkfun
    These are very thin variable potentiometers. By pressing down on various parts of the strip, the resistance linearly changes from 100Ohms to 10,000Ohms allowing the user to very accurately calculate the relative position on the strip. Can be used as an accurate positional indicator for CNC head positioning, variable user input (volume level input for example), straight user input (multiple button areas translate to given resistance levels), and many other applications.

Temperature & Weather

How's the weather? Well, you may never know without some sensors for your next project, and we've got both analog and digital options covered.

  1. GY-68 BMP180 Digital Pressure Sensor Module (Replaces BMP085)
    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: 018-GY-68
    The BMP180 is the BMP085's successor and brings to the table more accuracy, better energy consumption and smaller form size. There are plenty of example tutorials and guides for the BMP180; help by the fact it's a drop-in replacement for the BMP085.

  3. Temperature Sensor - TMP36
    Rating:
    97% of 100
    SKU: SEN-10988 Brand: Sparkfun Guides (2)
    This is the same temperature sensor that is included in our SparkFun Inventor’s Kit. The TMP36 is a low voltage, precision centigrade temperature sensor. It provides a voltage output that is linearly proportional to the Celsius temperature. It also doesn’t require any external calibration to provide typical accuracies of ±1°C at +25°C and ±2°C over the −40°C to +125°C temperature range. We like it because it’s so easy to use: Just give the device a ground and 2.7 to 5.5 VDC and read the voltage on the Vout pin. The output voltage can be converted to temperature easily using the scale factor of 10 mV/°C.

  4. Soil Moisture Sensor (Arduino Compatible) Immersion Gold
    Rating:
    92% of 100
    SKU: SEN0114 Brand: DFRobot Guides (2)
    The new soil moisture sensor uses Immersion Gold which protects the nickel from oxidation. Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) has several advantages over more conventional (and cheaper) surface platings such as HASL (solder), including excellent surface planarity (particularly helpful for PCB's with large BGA packages), good oxidation resistance, and usability for untreated contact surfaces such as membrane switches and contact points.
