SparkFun weather:bit for micro:bit (3A3 weather:bit sparkfun)

The SparkFun weather:bit is a fully loaded “carrier” board for the micro:bit that, when combined with the micro:bit, provides you with a fully functional weather station.

With the weather:bit you will have access to barometric pressure, relative humidity and temperature readings. There are also connections on this carrier board to optional sensors such as wind speed, direction, rain gauge and soil readings! The micro:bit has a lot of features and a lot of potential for weather data collection.

The weather:bit connects to the micro:bit via an edge connector at the top of the board, making setup easy. This creates a handy way to swap out micro:bits for programming, while still providing reliable connections to all of the different pins on the micro:bit. SparkFun have also included serial and I2C ports on the weather:bit for optimized connectivity if you so choose.

More about micro:bit and Sparkfun available at https://youtu.be/APcshxydBYI

Features:

  • Onboard temperature, humidity, pressure and light sensor
  • Connectors for soil moisture and soil temperature
  • Connectors for wind speed, direction and rainfall gauges
  • Edge connector for easy micro:bit integration

WS16 AS3935 2.4V to 5.5V Lightning Distance Detector sensor (1A2 lightning sensor)
Based on the AMS reference design, this is a breakout board for the AS3935 digital lightning sensor. With a specially tuned antenna, SPI or I2C interfacing and a wide 2.4V to 5.5V standard operating range, this innovative sensor is designed to interface with most current development systems and boards. This includes all of the current Arduino modules!
 
The AS3935 Franklin Lightning Detector gives you lightning detection for your next weather project. This sensor is capable of detecting lightning up to 40 km away with an accuracy of 1km to the storm front! On the product is a sensitive antenna tuned to pick up lightning events in the 500kHz band. When sensing an event the AS3935 utilizes an interrupt to the interrupt pin, distinguishes between false and real lightning events, and has a number of features to help calibrate lightning detection. For example, there are settings for detecting from indoors or detecting from outdoors, settings to change the threshold for false events, and settings to be alerted only after a certain number of lightning strikes to name a few. We've also written an Arduino Library to get you prepared for that upcoming storm!
 
The product is capable of communicating over SPI or I2C and sports a Qwiic connector for fast implementation without the need for soldering.

Weather Board[/caption] The Weather Board is a weather station controller board designed to interface to Arduino and Raspberry Pi computers.  It is an interface board developed by SwitchDoc Labs to allow the user to easily build a fully functioned Weather Station while allowing customization of functions. The Weather Board is derived from Project Curacao and the WeatherPiArduino.  Generation 1 of this board was deployed and tested in Curacao before Generation 2 was released to production.  The full WeatherPiArduino article was published in Raspberry Pi Geek magazine in September, 2014 and a follow up article has been published in April, 2015 (including the new lightning detector).  The Weather Board comes with a SwitchDoc Labs DS3231/EEPROM board. Combine the Weather Board with a SunAir or SunAirPlus board to create a solar powered weather station.

 The SDL_Weather_80422 class library is designed to provide all the functions of the SwitchDoc WeatherRack, ArgentData Weather Sensors,  SparkFun Weather Meters SEN-08942 in one C++ class. The library is easy to use and hides the complexity of the interface to the sensors.  The C++ class has two Interrupt Service Routines (ISR), one each for the anemometer and the rain bucket.  The wind vane is connected to an Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) input pin on the Arduino.  Note that the C++ class is designed to be a singleton, in other words, you only can interface one sensor package without some additional work (mostly involving Interrupts).  The article in Raspberry Pi Geek magazine discusses this in detail. There are two main modes for the class.

SDL_MODE_SAMPLE

SDL_MODE_SAMPLE mode means return immediately after asking for the wind speed. The wind speed is averaged at sampleTime or since you last asked, whichever is longer. If the sample time has not passed since the last call, the class returns the last calculated wind speed. That means that you will never see changes faster than the specified sample time. This allows you to not wait for the wind speed, you can just grab the last valid reading.

SDL_MODE_DELAY

SDL_MODE_DELAY mode means to wait for the set sample time to expire and return the average wind speed at the expiration. You would use this if you want to make sure you have the latest value and your program architecture allows you to pause for the sample time before continuing. Which mode you use depends on the specific software architecture of your Arduino application. Typically, I use SDL_MODE_SAMPLE because I can tolerate not having a current value of wind speed. The example code for the SDL_Weather_80422 library is shown below:
