Keep your MCU calm under pressure.

Pressure 2 click

Pressure 2 click carries a robust but precise SM5803 pressure sensor enclosed into a gel and stainless steel cap that lets it withstand pressures of up to 30 bars.

Under this protective layer is a boiler room with bursting pipes and shattering glass and tiny people running in a panic writing down the measurements from pressure gauges and sending them down tubes marked I2C and SPI.

No, in fact the module consists of a high linear pressure sensor and an ultra low power 24 bit ADC. Its measurement range is from 0 to 14 bars (which is approximately the pressure of nitrogen inside a fire extinguisher). The measurement resolution is up to 0.2 mbar.

Not only is it robust and precise, the sensor on Pressure 2 click is also fast: the conversion time can be brought down to 1 millisecond.

Finally, Pressure 2 click is versatile, meaning it can be connected to a microcontroller either through a SPI or I2C interface (the I2C address is also configurable). It’s just that they aren’t tiny tubes but good old mikroBUS™ pins.

Check out the details on the product page. Libstock examples are also ready.
