Environment Click Overview:
The Environment click module measures temperature, relative humidity, pressure and VOCs (Volatile Organic compounds gases).
Parallax speeds the process of Propeller 2 development through our partnership with MikroE, who has created a family of 850+ Clicks for most I/O functions you may envision. For each of the Click boards stocked by Parallax, you will find a documented Spin 2 code example on our Propeller GitHub Object Exchange. Connect your Click boards to the P2 Eval Board (#64000), and the P2 Edge Module Breadboard (#64020) or P2 Edge Mini Breakout Board (#64019) with a P2 Edge Module (#P2-EC), using the P2 to MikroBus Click Adapter (#64008).
The Environment Click carries the BME680 environmental sensor from Bosch. Environment click is designed to run on a 3.3V power supply. It communicates with the target microcontroller over SPI or I2C interface.
You can use it to test your indoor air quality, to control HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems, in a weather station, sports applications and more.
The humidity sensor provides an extremely fast response time for fast context awareness applications and high overall accuracy over a wide temperature range. The pressure sensor is an absolute barometric pressure sensor with extremely high accuracy and resolution.
The integrated temperature sensor has been optimized for lowest noise and highest resolution. Its output is used for temperature compensation of the pressure and humidity sensors and can also be used for estimation of the ambient temperature.
The gas sensor within the BME680 can detect a broad range of gases to measure indoor air quality for personal well being. Gases that can be detected by the BME680 include Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) from paints (such as formaldehyde), lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning supplies, furnishings, office equipment, glues, adhesives, and alcohol.
