Everything you wanted to know on Yoctopuce sensors

By mvuilleu, in For the beginners and Measures, september 22,2017.

A large majority of Yoctopuce modules are sensors, or are used to interface external sensors. Therefore the programming interface to access the sensors and retrieve their measures is among the most developed and continues to be enriched following the requests that we receive. To help you find the method that suits you best, today we offer a synthesis of everything at your disposal.

Using a Pitot probe with a Yocto-0-10V-Rx

By seb, in Measures, august 11,2017.

A few years ago, we explained how to create an anemometer, but there is another solution to measure wind speed: the Pitot tube. This week, we are going to see how to measure wind speed with a Pitot tube for scaled modelling and a Yocto-0-10V-Rx.

How to detect leaks in an irrigation circuit

Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported Irrigation controllers are very convenient to avoid the garden watering chore, but they sometimes create disasters. As times goes by, and with changes in temperature, pipes tend to unbend and sometimes to separate at the joints, creating local inundations which can be devastating the vegetable patch, for example. Let's see how to detect leaks as quickly as possible...

Yocto-Visualization, a free visualization app

By martinm, in Measures and New stuff, may 05,2017.

We have a present for you today. It's something that people have been regularly asking for, despite our best efforts to be as clear as possible that Yoctopuce doesn't provide ready-to-use solutions. In the end, we decided to make a small exception:-) and to give you an application to easily visualize the values measured by Yoctopuce sensors. If you work under Windows, you will be able to display graphs, indicators, and other gadgets in a few clicks. Follow the guide...

A connected smoke detector

By mvuilleu, in Measures and DIY, april 28,2017.

The usual method to detect smoke consists in measuring the reflection of a light beam on the smoke particles suspended in the air. Although we don't explicitly have a smoke detector in our product catalogue, we recently started offering a product which can be used for this: the Yocto-RangeFinder. Indeed, this sensor uses exactly the same principle for its main feature (distance measurement) and can therefore easily be used as USB smoke detector, or even as a networked smoke detector.
