SW 05: Conductivity Sensor

Turn on the Smart Water Board and reads the Conductivity sensor printing the result through the USB.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote 1 x Battery 1 x Smart Water Sensor Board 1 x Conductivity Sensor 1 x Conductivity Sensor Kit


- The calibration values selected in the code are an example for a specific sensor, each unit will require its own calibration parameters. Other conductivity solutions of the kit can be used, depending on the target environment conductivity. - Calibration can be replaced by the theoretical approximation when calling function conductivityConversion at the expense of a loose of accuracy. Take a look at section “API” of the Smart Water Technical Guide for more information. - This example is valid for Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15.
