Product Description

Introduction

This is a sensor module for the Bosch BMP180 high-precision, low-power digital barometer. The BMP180 offers a pressure measuring range of 300 to 1100 hPa with an accuracy down to 0.02 hPa in advanced resolution mode. It’s based on piezo-resistive technology for high accuracy, ruggedness and long term stability. The chip only accepts 1.8V to 3.6V input voltage. However, with outer circuit added, this module becomes compatible with 3.3V and 5V. Therefore, it can be used on Arduino/Seeeduino or Seeeduino Stalker without modification.It is designed to be connected directly to a micro-controller via the I2C bus.

Usage

With Arduino Barometric condition is one of the criteria used to predict coming change in weather and deduce altitude above sea level. Here is a demo to show you how to read the barometric data from this Grove - Barometer Sensor (BMP180). 1. Connect it to IIC port of Seeeduino or Grove - Base Shield via a Grove cable. And connect Arduino to PC via a USB cable. 2. Download the library(the barometer library is shared by Grove - Barometer Sensor (BMP180) and Grove - Barometer Sensor(BMP085));Unzip it into the libraries file of Arduino IDE by the path: ..\arduino-1.0.1\libraries. 3. Create a new Arduino sketch and paste the codes below to it or open the code directly by the path:File -> Example ->Barometer_Sensor->Barometer_Sensor.

 /* SFE_BMP180 library example sketch


This sketch shows how to use the SFE_BMP180 library to read the Bosch BMP180 barometric pressure sensor. https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11824


Like most pressure sensors, the BMP180 measures absolute pressure. This is the actual ambient pressure seen by the device, which will vary with both altitude and weather.


Before taking a pressure reading you must take a temparture reading. This is done with startTemperature() and getTemperature(). The result is in degrees C.


Once you have a temperature reading, you can take a pressure reading. This is done with startPressure() and getPressure(). The result is in millibar (mb) aka hectopascals (hPa).


If you'll be monitoring weather patterns, you will probably want to remove the effects of altitude. This will produce readings that can be compared to the published pressure readings from other locations. To do this, use the sealevel() function. You will need to provide the known altitude at which the pressure was measured.


If you want to measure altitude, you will need to know the pressure at a baseline altitude. This can be average sealevel pressure, or a previous pressure reading at your altitude, in which case subsequent altitude readings will be + or - the initial baseline. This is done with the altitude() function.


Hardware connections:


- (GND) to GND


+ (VDD) to 3.3V


(WARNING: do not connect + to 5V or the sensor will be damaged!)


You will also need to connect the I2C pins (SCL and SDA) to your Arduino. The pins are different on different Arduinos:


Any Arduino pins labeled:  SDA  SCL

Uno, Redboard, Pro:        A4   A5

Mega2560, Due:             20   21

Leonardo:                   2    3

Leave the IO (VDDIO) pin unconnected. This pin is for connecting the BMP180 to systems with lower logic levels such as 1.8V


Have fun! -Your friends at SparkFun.


The SFE_BMP180 library uses floating-point equations developed by the Weather Station Data Logger project: http://wmrx00.sourceforge.net/


Our example code uses the "beerware" license. You can do anything you like with this code. No really, anything. If you find it useful, buy me a beer someday.
