An Open-Source platform to create digital devices and interactive objects that sense and control physical devices.
In the comments below: Let Us Know How You Would Use the MKR RGB, MKR ENV, and MKR Shield in Your Arduino Projects!
Submit a Project Proposal for an IoT: In the Cloud project and we'll send out a limited number of shields for projects that use them!
View tech specs and unboxing videos for the Arduino MKR RGB, MKR ENV, MKR THERM shields. Datasheets and Eagle Files are also attached below.
There's still time left for your IoT: In the Cloud project. This year for Arduino Day we challenged you to do Arduino Projects for Arduino Day 2019: Arduino MKR Projects in the Cloud!
Recently, these new shields were launched exclusively through Farnell. This will give you a chance to use the new shields in your IoT projects or any Arduino projects you are working on. If you have an idea for an IoT: In the Cloud project that uses one of the shields, we'll send you one of the new shields to help you complete your project. The competition closes on May 14th and you can read details at: Project14 | IoT in the Cloud: Make Use of a Wireless Technology and a Cloud Provider!
Below are some specs and unboxing videos for the 3 new shields from Arduino!
|ARDUINO MKR THERM SHIELD|
The MKR THERM Shield allows a board of the MKR family to acquire temperatures from a thermocouple of type K and a DS18Bxx digital one wire sensor. The Thermocouple is a kind of temperature sensor that offers high accuracy and a wide range of measured temperatures. Its analog nature requires specific interfacing and this shield relies on the MAX31855 thermocouple digital interface.
The two connectors of the MKR THERM Shield allow the usage of Type K thermocouples with or without a plug attached to the metal wires.
The MKR THERM Shield has its own library to read the temperature measured by the thermocouple
