RS Components has announced availability of a development kit from Honeywell that enables the simple evaluation of sensors. The Honeywell SEK001 sensor board does not require the development of code before receiving sensor measurements, enabling developers to start testing and prototyping right away.
Ideal for sensor demonstration, testing and evaluation purposes, the SEK001 is essentially an Arduino shield board, which can interface a chosen individual sensor to the Arduino Uno (Rev3) microcontroller board. The selected sensor can either be mounted directly on the SEK001 board, or alternatively connected via leads, enabling the sensor to be tested in adverse environments, or in a prototype product for proof-of-concept testing.
The kit includes the SEK001 sensor evaluation board and five jumpers that are preconfigured to evaluate the onboard Honeywell HSCDRRN001ND2A5 5 V d.c. differential pressure sensor. The SEK001 also has sockets to receive Honeywell’s TruStability HSC and SSC series pressure sensors, which come with an I2C or SPI digital output, as well as the new TruStability RSC series of high-resolution pressure sensors.
Also available is free downloadable Honey-well software, which controls the Arduino Uno board and takes readings from the sensor under evaluation. Sensor measurements can be displayed on a PC and recorded to a .csv file for further analysis.
