Original Digital Temperature And Humidity Sensor Module DHT22
Original Digital Temperature And Humidity Sensor Module DHT22. The DHT 22 is a basic, low-cost digital temperature and humidity sensor. It uses a capacitive humidity sensor and a thermistor to measure the surrounding air, and spits out a digital signal on the data pin (no analog input pins needed). Its fairly simple to use, but requires careful timing to grab data. The only real downside of this sensor is you can only get new data from it once every 2 seconds, so when using our library, sensor readings can be up to 2 seconds old.
DHT 22 output calibrated digital signal. It utilizes exclusive digital-signal-collecting-technique and humidity sensing technology, assuring its reliability and stability.Its sensing elements is connected with 8-bit single-chip computer. Every sensor of this model is temperature compensated and calibrated in accurate calibration chamber and the calibration-coefficient is saved in type of program in OTP memory, when the sensor is detecting, it will cite coefficient from memory. Small size & low consumption & long transmission distance(20 m) enable DHT 22 to be suited in all kinds of harsh application occasions. Single-row packaged with four pins, making the connection very convenient. By liking Our Facebook Page Embeded Studio , you can get special discount. Data Sheet of DHT 22 can be also downloaded from the link.
Simply connect the first pin on the left to 3-5 V power, the second pin to your data input pin and the right most pin to ground. Although it uses a single-wire to send data it is not Dallas One Wire compatible! If you want multiple sensors, each one must have its own data pin.
this sensor is more precise, more accurate and works in a bigger range of temperature/humidity, but its larger and more expensive.
Comes with a 4.7K – 10K resistor, which you will want to use as a pullup from the data pin to VCC.
