Development kits support sensor modules
AmbiMate sensor module MS4 development kits from TE Connectivity are in stock at Mouser Electronics. The development kits enable global engineering and development teams to build prototypes and evaluation boards for systems incorporating TE’s AmbiMate MS4 Series sensor modules.
The kits allow engineers and developers to connect up to seven smart sensors to either a Raspberry Pi or Arduino board and start collecting data within 30 minutes, using downloadable code available from TE.
All of the kits include sensors for passive infrared (PIR) motion, light, temperature, and humidity, while optional additions include an integrated microphone and sensors for equivalent CO2 (eCO2)and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
TE's sensor modules and development kits enable easy integration in a variety of host products in building automation, lighting, and smart home applications where environmental data can inform product decisions.
For example, engineers can use one or more modules to capture VOC and eCO2 concentrations and evaluate air quality.
TE's AmbiMate sensor modules include an integrated microphone to augment motion detection by listening for sound events.
A network of modules can detect occupancy, humidity, temperature, and light levels, allowing building controllers to adjust indoor lighting, HVAC equipment, energy management, and other zonal environmental controls to support sustainability efforts.
