Enviro pHAT

https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/enviro-phat

The Pimoroni Enviro pHAT boast a plethora of sensors and connectivity for measuring your environment.

Enviro pHAT includes:

  • An LSM303D accelerometer/magnetometer for detecting orientation, motion and heading
  • A BMP280 temperature/pressure sensor
  • A TCS3472 colour sensor, for detecting the amount and colour of light
  • An ADS1015 analog sensor with four 3.3v tolerant channels for your external sensors
  • A 5v power supply pin for powering your sensors, which you can regulate or divide to 3v if needed
  • Two LEDs connected to GPIO #4 for illuminating objects over the colour sensor

Installing

Full install (recommended):

We've created an easy installation script that will install all pre-requisites and get your Enviro pHAT up and running with minimal efforts. To run it, fire up Terminal which you'll find in Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal on your Raspberry Pi desktop, as illustrated below:

Finding the terminal

In the new terminal window type the command exactly as it appears below (check for typos) and follow the on-screen instructions:

curl https://get.pimoroni.com/envirophat | bash

Alternatively, on Raspbian, you can download the pimoroni-dashboard and install your product by browsing to the relevant entry:

sudo apt-get install pimoroni

(you will find the Dashboard under 'Accessories' too, in the Pi menu - or just run pimoroni-dashboard at the command line)

If you choose to download examples you'll find them in /home/pi/Pimoroni/envirophat/.

Development:

If you want to contribute, or like living on the edge of your seat by having the latest code, you should clone this repository, cd to the library directory, and run:

sudo python3 setup.py install

(or sudo python setup.py install whichever your primary Python environment may be)

In all cases you will have to enable the i2c bus.
