OpenLog Artemis Hookup Guide
The SparkFun OpenLog Artemis (OLA) is a versatile, open source data logger that comes preprogrammed to automatically log a wide variety of data from a large number of sensors. And here’s the best bit… You can do all of this without writing a single line of code! The OLA automatically detects which sensors are connected to it and logs the data to microSD card in standard Comma Separated Value (CSV) format. The OLA is designed for users who just need to capture a bunch of data and get back to their larger project. We will quickly get you up to speed with the OLA and the Qwiic ecosystem so you can start logging all that data!
To follow along with this tutorial, you will need the following materials. You may not need everything though depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guide, and adjust the cart as necessary.
- SparkFun OpenLog Artemis [DEV-16832]
- microSD Card formatted with FAT32 [COM-15107]
- A USB-C cable for configuration and LiPo charging
- Lithium Ion Battery [PRT-13813]
- At least one Qwiic cable
- Any additional sensors you may need
Straight out of the box anti-static bag the OLA is ready to log data from its built-in ICM-20948 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) 9-Degrees-Of-Freedom (9-DOF) sensor. Only want to log magnetometer, accelerometer, gyro or temperature data? You’re good to go! But the fun is only just beginning…
The OLA is preprogrammed to automatically log data from all of the following sensors, so you may wish to add one or more of these to your shopping cart too. (More sensors are being added all the time and it is really easy to upgrade the OLA to support them. But we’ll get to that in a moment!)
- Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) navigation data. The OLA can be linked to any of SparkFun’s u-blox GNSS boards allowing you to log accurate position, velocity and time data from:
- and augmentation services like SBAS
- Pressure, Altitude, Humidity and Temperature Data:
- Air Quality and Environmental Sensors:
- Precision Temperature Sensors:
- NAU7802 load cell sensor
- Serial Data:
- The OLA will automatically log standard 3.3V serial data received on its RX pin
- The OLA can also stream the sensor data to the serial TX pin (when enabled)
- Analog Voltage:
- OLA supports up to four built-in 14-bit Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) pins (2.0V Maximum)
- The OLA supports differential voltage sensing with the ADS122C04 24-bit ADC found on the Qwiic PT100
