Engineering Summer Program for Teachers - 2017

VernierShield

Author: Bob Kubichek, University of Wyoming

Date: 5/22/2017

Here we look at how to use analog Vernier sensors with Arduino. (Currently most Vernier sensors appear to be analog).  The Vernier.com website has a lot of information about this topic. There are three ways to connect Vernier probes to an Arduino:

    1. Buy a Vernier shield from Sparkfun
    2. Buy connector break-out boards that are compatible with your Arduino breadboards
    3. Buy inexpensive connectors and attach your wiring directly to the connectors.

In this module we illustrate all three techniques, and include a simple project that uses a Vernier light gauge as the basis for an analog light gauge. The presentation material and the code can be downloaded at Vernier Shield.
