Kit Description:

With this add-on kit you can collect data...

  • with all the convenience of xChips - no soldering, wiring, breadboarding or lab equipment needed
  • requiring no electronics or hardware knowledge
  • providing a much cheaper and more accessible way of building a remote sensing instruments 
  • with easy availability, allowing you to avoid long lead times
  • Sample Arduino code to get going fast

Kit contents:

  • 1 x Barometer for atmospheric pressure (and temperature for chip calibration)
  • 1 x Accelerometer with axes X, Y and Z. The data can be used to detect vibrations and changes in orientation
  • 1 x VOC and eCO2 gas sensor
  • 10 pin connectors
  • Selection of prototype and extension boards for you to develop your own sensors

    How it works:

    We continuously develop Arduino coding examples for our kits so that you can get started fast. All the coding libraries are available in multiple languages, supporting you to develop your own code.

    The MaxIQ MQTT server delivers data to a Kibana dashboard to efficient remote sensing.
