Temperature and humidity sensor

The HDC1080 is a digital humidity and temperature sensor. The sensor has a high accuracy and a very low power consumption and is therefore ideally suited to the senseBox. The sensors are calibrated ex works and can be used directly.

Programming (Arduino)

#include "SenseBoxMCU.h"
#include <Adafruit_HDC1000.h>
#include <SPI.h>

HDC1080 hdc;

void setup(){

void loop(){
    Serial.print("Temperature: ");
    Serial.print("Humidity: ");

Programming (Blockly)

In Blockly the sensor can be read out via the following block:

In the block you can choose between the different parameters of the temperature and humidity sensor:

  • Temperature in degrees Celsius (°C)
  • Air humidity in percent (%)
