SparkFun Logic Level Converter Bi-Directional (3A4 Sparkfun logic level converter )

If you’ve ever tried to connect a 3.3V device to a 5V system, you know what a challenge it can be. The SparkFun bi-directional logic level converter is a small device that safely steps down 5V signals to 3.3V AND steps up 3.3V to 5V at the same time.

This level converter also works with 2.8V and 1.8V devices. What really separates this Logic level converter from our previous versions is that you can successfully set your high and low voltages and step up and down between them safely on the same channel. Each level converter has the capability of converting 4 pins on the high side to 4 pins on the low side with two inputs and two outputs provided for each side.

The level converter is very easy to use. The board needs to be powered from the two voltages sources (high voltage and low voltage) that your system is using. High voltage (5V for example) to the ‘HV’ pin, low voltage (3.3V for example) to ‘LV’, and ground from the system to the ‘GND’ pin.

PMS5003 Particulate Matter Sensor with Cable (2B6 particulate sensor)

Monitor air pollution cheaply and accurately with this matchbox-sized particulate matter (PM) sensor from Plantower! It senses particulates of various sizes (PM1, PM2.5, PM10) from sources like smoke, dust, pollen, metal and organic particles, and more.

Pair this particulate matter sensor with our Enviro plus and build your own air quality monitoring station to contribute to citizen science. Just plug the cable into the sensor and then into the connector on the underside of Enviro plus, and away you go!

The sensor has a small fan that sucks air through the sensor and past a laser that can detect both the number (and hence concentration) and size of particles in the surrounding air.

Features

  • Plantower PMS5003 Particulate Matter (PM) Sensor (datasheet)
  • Detects PM1, PM2.5, PM10 particulates
  • 15cm Picoblade cable
  • UART serial interface
  • Python library
  • Dimensions: 50x38x21mm

Software

Our Python library for the PMS5003 sensor lets you read PM1, PM2.5, and PM10 in both standard and environmental units, and numbers of particles of various sizes: >0.3, >0.5, >1.0, >2.5, >5, and >10um.

Note that if you're using this sensor with Raspberry Pi, then you'll need to make a couple of changes to its configuration. Type sudo raspi-config in the terminal and then under "Interfacing options" and "Serial" disable the login shell and enable the serial port hardware. Edit your /boot/config.txt file and add the lines enable_uart=1 and dtoverlay=pi3-miniuart-bt to the bottom of the file.

Our Enviro plus installation script will do all of this configuration for you.

Notes

There's a blue protective film that covers the metal casing of the sensor, and you can peel this off before use.
