BadgerHack: Sensor Add-On Kit
There is a little bit of soldering, so if you need a quick refresher on that I suggest taking a look at our soldering tutorial.
To begin, snap off 15 pins from the break-away headers, and solder them to the through-holes on the side opposite the LED array of the BadgerStick.
You can place the headers in the breadboard to help keep them in place as you solder.
The rest of the setup will be using the breadboard and the jumper wires.
Start by sticking the headers you just soldered to your stick at a corner of your breadboard.
Now we will connect the sensors as follows:
|Component Pin||Badger/Redstick Pin|
|Soil Moisture Sensor VCC||VCC|
|Soil Moisture Sensor GND||GND|
|Soil Moisture Sensor SIG||A0|
|Temperature Sensor left||GND|
|Temperature Sensor middle||A4|
|Temperature Sensor right||VCC|
* Pins not listed are not used.
Here is a picture layout of how to connect everything up
With everything hooked up, it's time to upload some code.
