This multifunctional environmental sensor features an SHTC3 temperature & humidity sensor, BMP280 barometric pressure sensor, VEML7700 ambient light sensor and an ML8511 UV sensor on a single board!

Professional sensor chips are selected for each kind of parameter measurement. The reasonable layout and heat conduction of main chips are carefully considered in the circuit design, which effectively guarantees the accuracy of the data.

The product has an MCU processing chip onboard that converts the sensor raw data into values with the standard units so you can directly use them in your projects. For example, it uses ℃ and °F for temperature, % for humidity, Kpa for barometric pressure, lx for light illuminance and mw/m² for UV light.

The environmental sensor supports two communication methods (UART and I2C) with  Arduino and Python libraries provided.

Incredibly useful and small in size, you can use it to make indoor and outdoor environmental monitoring systems and other similar projects. The online wiki will also help get you up and running quickly.
