TE Connectivity MS8607 Element
The MS8607 element is used to read ambient temperature, humidity, and pressure. This element is for using the TE Connectivity MS8607 environmental PHT sensor, featured on the TE Connectivity MEAS weather shield for Arduino/Genuino.
The MS8607 is a sensor element that can be imported into the Element Toolbox through the Add Element button located in the toolbox from the Embedded tab.
The following properties can be changed for the MS8607 element:
The name of the element.
I2C Driver Instance
I2C driver instance to use for communication.
GPIO Driver Instance
GPIO driver instance to use.
TE Weather Shield
This sensor is included on the TE Weather Shield, which requires three extra GPIO lines to be used as a “chip select.” If this field is disabled, the following three properties will be ignored.
Weather Shield CSA
Weather Shield chip select A GPIO pin. This property is ignored if the TE Weather Shield property is disabled.
Weather Shield CSB
Weather Shield chip select B GPIO pin. This property is ignored if the TE Weather Shield property is disabled.
Weather Shield En
Weather Shield chip select enable pin. This property is ignored if the TE Weather Shield property is disabled.
The following triggers are available to execute events from within the MS8607 element:
Execute an event when the source element connected to the MS8607 triggers.
Execute an event when the temperature is read from the MS8607.
Execute an event when the pressure is read from the MS8607.
Execute an event when the humidity is read from the MS8607.
The following abilities are available for the MS8607 element when its source element triggers:
Trigger the element(s) that follow the MS8607 element.
Read the temperature in degrees Celsius.
Read the pressure in mbar.
Read the humidity in relative humidity percentage.
Atmosphere includes a selection of resources for users of all levels that demonstrate using the MS8607 element.
