A new sensor evaluation board from Omron Electronic Components Europe gives developers working on sensor systems for the IoT a fast track to a ‘proof of concept’ prototype hosted on Raspberry Pi, Arduino or Adafruit Feather.

The board comes equipped with sensors for six popular environmental parameters, is supported by data acquisition software and features expansion connectors to interface to Omron and other manufacturers’ sensors.

The Omron 2JCIE-EV01 sensor evaluation board comes equipped with sensors to measure temperature, humidity, pressure, light, sound and acceleration. An on-board connector allows it to be expanded with the Omron D6T thermal sensor, D6F-PH MEMS differential pressure sensor, B5W-LB optical sensor or B5W-LD air quality / dust sensor. A further connector allows any Qwiic compatible sensor to be connected to the board. Omron has supplied code for the required sensor data acquisition program on GitHub.

The Evaluation Board’s internal sensor is based on Omron’s 2JCIE-BL01 USB environmental sensor module. The board features an internal data logging capability and can accumulate data for approximately 3 months (based on a communication frequency of once every 5mn). In addition to the host board it can connect to multiple devices, such as smartphones, via Bluetooth 5.0. Bespoke threshold values can be set to provide alerts that notify the user of any abnormal sensor readings.

Omron is offering three separate variants of the 2JCIE-EV01 Sensor Evaluation Board depending on whether customers want to host their prototype on Raspberry Pi, Arduino or Adafruit Feather.
