Bar30 Pressure Sensor

Arduino software library is available here.

The schematic and board layout are designed in EagleCAD.

Hardware

Description

The Bar30 pressure sensor is a high-pressure, high-resolution pressure sensor that is sealed from the water and ready to install in a watertight enclosure. With 0.2 bar resolution, it has an amazing depth measurement resolution of 2mm in the water column!

The sensor is the Measurement Specialties MS5837-30BA, which can measure up to 30 bar (300m depth) and communicates over I2C. It comes standard with a 4-pin DF13 connector and compatible with most DroneCode compatible boards including the APM2.6, PixHawk, and others.

Features

  • Measure up to 300m water depth with 2mm resolution
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Standard DF13 connector for connection to DroneCode boards such as APM, PixHawk, Navio2, etc.
  • Sealed in a bulkhead penetrator for easy installation into any 10mm hole

Compatibility

The Bar30 sensor is compatible with any device with 3.3V I2C logic. When using with a 5V device, such as an Arduino Uno, it is necessary to use a logic level converter.
