» SW 02: ORP sensor

Turn on the Smart Water Board and reads the ORP sensor extracting the value from the calibration values and temperature compensation

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x Smart Water Sensor Board
1 x Oxidation-Reduction potential Sensor
1 x ORP Calibration kit


- The calibration offset value selected in the code is an example for a specific sensor, each unit will require its own calibration parameter.
- Introduce a '0' for the offset if calibration is not to be performed.
- If the sensor has been kept stored for long it may take longer to reach a steady output.
- This example is valid for Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15
