I2C bus testing with intel edison

Hello sir , i'm using intel edison and wants to use i2c bus of edison , i know the working of i2c bus also downloaded mraa library for that.

i want to test sensor which are in Grove starter kit with i2c bus but dont know how to start ,

could you please tell me how to test grove starter kit sensor with i2c bus of edison

Hi Gau999,

Thank you for contacting us..

I was checking the Grove Starter Kit http://wiki.seeed.cc/Grove_Starter_Kit_v3/ http://wiki.seeed.cc/Grove_Starter_Kit_v3/, and I'm not sure which sensor you want to use because I only saw the LCD that uses the I2C communication method. Now if you want to know more about the I2C communication I recommend you to check the MRAA repository (https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/mraa https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/mraa).

There is also a list of supported sensors and code samples in the hardware sensors page at https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/sensors Sensors | IoT | Intel® Software. For more examples check the UPM repository at https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/upm/tree/master/examples upm/examples at master · intel-iot-devkit/upm · GitHub.

I hope you find this helpful.

Regards,

Hello sir,

i want to test Temperature , humidity, current sensor etc on I2C bus

For temperature and Humidity we are using DHT 22 sensor http://https//www.amazon.com/Parts-tower-Digital-Temperature-Humidity/dp/B01FVW9UCK/ref=sr_1_6?s=hi&... https://www.amazon.com/Parts-tower-Digital-Temperature-Humidity/dp/B01FVW9UCK/ref=sr_1_6?s=hi&ie=UTF... ,

and for current measurement we are using yhdc CT 100 sensor http://https//www.amazon.com/YHDC-SCT013-000-Transformer-Input100A-Suspension/dp/B01DNL3N6A/ref=sr_1... https://www.amazon.com/YHDC-SCT013-000-Transformer-Input100A-Suspension/dp/B01DNL3N6A/ref=sr_1_4?s=i...

and these sensor i want test on I2C protocol, can we use these sensor with I2C bus?

if not, which sensor have i to use for i2c protocol for Temperature , humidity , current measurement , water level , water flow, gas sensor, water quality

could you please suggest above sensors for industrial application

Hi Gau999,

 

 

Those sensors that you told me (DHT 22, YHDC CT 100) can't be use with I2C communication.

 

 

About the suggestions, well we don't have a list a sensors to recommend you, because it depends to you which sensor do you want to use and you should check the datasheet to see if it uses the I2C protocol. You can check this list of sensors that I gave you before, you can filter them according to their function and communication: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/sensors.

 

 

For example take a look at these Temperature/Humidity sensors with I2C: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/sensors?field_component_type_tid=80540&field_component...

 

 

I hope you find this information helpful

Hello sir,

Thank you for your valuable suggestion.

could you please recommend me sensor for the following which can be use on I2C bus

Temperature , humidity , luminosity (LDR), water level ,water flow, Gases sensor (CO, CO2, O2, NO2), load cell

Thanks

Hi Gau999,

 

 

Unfortunately, we don't have a list a sensors to recommend you, because it depends to you, if you need sensors with I2C you should search them and look the datasheet to check if they meet your requirements.

 

 

Have a nice weekend.
