In another thread on this forum I have been posting a few pictures of my latest project. It is a weather station powered by an Electric Imp.
The weather sensors I use is from sparkfun (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8942) and it got a rain gauge, wind vane and anemometer.
Sparkfun already got a guide on how to make such a weather station, but it uses an arduino, a weather shield to connect to the sensors, an electric imp shield, and an electric imp. My version will be just my board which will hold all the components the electric imp needs to work, the connectors that match the connectors on the weather sensors, a TMP36 for measuring the temperature, and two relays just for expanding the boards function.
During the process of making this pcb I learnt how to create new components in eagle, and before ordering the pcb’s I decided to print it out on paper just to place some components over it to see if I had done it right.
So far it looks like I did it right
Now I wait for the last smd components to arrive, the pcb’s themself, and a stencil to make applying the solder paste easier.
Source code will be released as soon as I have it untangled with the other code I got running on the imp I am testing on, and when I have tested it all works as expected.
