SWI 02: pH Sensor Reading

Turn on the Smart Water Ions Sensor Board and reads the pH sensor extracting the value from the calibration values and temperature compensation

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote 1 x Battery 1 x Smart Water Ions Sensor Board 1 x Reference Probe 1 x pH Sensor Probe (for Smart Water Ions) 1 x pH Calibration Kit (for those sensors which require calibration) 1 x PT1000 temperature sensor (for temperature compensation)


- The pH Sensor Probe for Smart Water Ions can not be used with the Smart Water Board. - The pH Sensor can be used with both references probes (Single and Double). - Calibration process of the pH sensor is described in the Smart Water Board technical guide. - This example can be executed in Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15.
