MSP430FR4133 LaunchPad and SHT31 sensor example using Energia

by iainhendry71

In this article we connect a SHT31 temperature and humidity sensors to a MSP430FR4133 LaunchPad

SHT31 is the next generation of Sensirion’s temperature and humidity sensors. It builds on a new CMOSens® sensor chip that is at the heart of Sensirion’s new humidity and temperature platform.

The SHT3x-DIS has increased intelligence, reliability and improved accuracy specifications compared to its predecessor. Its functionality includes enhanced signal processing, two distinctive and user selectable I2C addresses and communication speeds of up to 1 MHz. The DFN package has a footprint of 2.5 x 2.5 mm2 while keeping a height of 0.9 mm.

This allows for integration of the SHT3x-DIS into a great variety of applications.

Features

Fully calibrated, linearized, and temperature compensated digital output
Wide supply voltage range, from 2.4 V to 5.5 V
I2C Interface with communication speeds up to 1 MHz and two user selectable addresses

Size 2.5 x 2.5 x 0.9 mm
Output I²C, Voltage Out
Supply voltage range 2.15 to 5.5 V
Energy consumption 4.8µW (at 2.4 V, low repeatability, 1 measurement / s)
RH operating range 0 – 100% RH
T operating range -40 to +125°C (-40 to +257°F)
RH response time 8 sec (tau63%)

Code

#include <Wire.h>
 
// SHT31 I2C address is 0x44(68)
#define Addr 0x44
 
void setup()
{
  // Initialise I2C communication as MASTER
  Wire.begin();
  // Initialise serial communication, set baud rate = 9600
  Serial.begin(9600);
  delay(300);
}
 
void loop()
{
  unsigned int data[6];
 
  // Start I2C Transmission
  Wire.beginTransmission(Addr);
  // Send 16-bit command byte
  Wire.write(0x2C);
  Wire.write(0x06);
  // Stop I2C transmission
  Wire.endTransmission();
  delay(300);
 
  // Start I2C Transmission
  Wire.beginTransmission(Addr);
  // Stop I2C Transmission
  Wire.endTransmission();
 
  // Request 6 bytes of data
  Wire.requestFrom(Addr, 6);
 
  // Read 6 bytes of data
  // temp msb, temp lsb, temp crc, hum msb, hum lsb, hum crc
  if (Wire.available() == 6)
  {
    data[0] = Wire.read();
    data[1] = Wire.read();
    data[2] = Wire.read();
    data[3] = Wire.read();
    data[4] = Wire.read();
    data[5] = Wire.read();
  }
  // Convert the data
  int temp = (data[0] * 256) + data[1];
  float cTemp = -45.0 + (175.0 * temp / 65535.0);
  float fTemp = (cTemp * 1.8) + 32.0;
  float humidity = (100.0 * ((data[3] * 256.0) + data[4])) / 65535.0;
 
  // Output data to serial monitor
  Serial.print("Temperature in Celsius :");
  Serial.print(cTemp);
  Serial.println(" C");
  Serial.print("Temperature in Fahrenheit :");
  Serial.print(fTemp);
  Serial.println(" F");
  Serial.print("Relative Humidity :");
  Serial.print(humidity);
  Serial.println(" %RH");
  delay(500);
}

Output

Temperature in Fahrenheit :73.30 F
Relative Humidity :42.03 %RH
Temperature in Celsius :22.93 C
Temperature in Fahrenheit :73.27 F
