» Ag 07: Ultraviolet Solar Radiation

In this example the Agriculture 2.0 sensor board is turned on and the ultraviolet radiation sensor read every second approximately, printing the result through the USB port.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x Agriculture PRO 2.0 board
1 x Ultraviolet radiation sensor (SU-100)


* This sensor is only available in the Agriculture PRO 2.0 board
* Remember to connect the battery to Waspmote for proper operation.
* The connection of the sensor is described in the Agriculture 2.0 technical guide.
* When turning on the temperature sensor you will be powering all the low consumption group sensors. See the Agriculture 2.0 board technical guide for more information.
* It may be necessary to substract an offset voltage (measured as the output of the sensor covered with the cap) for a proper conversion.
* This example can only be executed in Waspmote v12


 *  --[Ag_7] - Reading the Ultraviolet Radiation sensor at Agriculture v20 board-- 
 *  Explanation: Turn on the Agriculture v20 board and read the 
 *  Ultraviolet Radiation sensor on it once every second
