MKR ENV Shield-board

MKR ENV Shield

The MKR ENV Shield is a perfect addon for the MKR family series, and is capable of reading temperature, humidity, light and pressure. The data is acquired easily through an easy-to-use library, and has an SD card slot for offline data logging.

To use this shield, you can refer to the documentation of the MKR ENV library.

The MKR ENV Shield comes equipped with three sensors: LPS22HB, HTS221 and TEMT6000. It is perfect for data capturing projects, and is a low-threshold product for beginners to start working with real-time data. The shield's components are designed to operate in temperatures between -40 °C and +120 °C.
