AM2320 readings on an LCD4884 shield example

by shedboy71

In this example we connect an AM2320 sensor to an LCD4884 shield which in turn is fitted to an Arduino Uno, we will then display the temperature and humidity readings on the LCD from the sensor. Lets look at some information about the sensor.

Temperature and humidity combined sensor AM2320 digital temperature and humidity sensor is a digital signal output has been calibrated. Using special temperature and humidity acquisition technology, ensure that the product has a very high reliability and excellent long-term stability. Sensor consists of a capacitive moisture element and an integrated high-precision temperature measurement devices, and connected with a high-performance microprocessor .

AM2320 communication using a single bus, two communication modes standard I2C. Standard single-bus interface, the system integration becomes easy and quick. Ultra-small size, low power consumption, signal transmission distance up to 20 meters, making all kinds of applications and even the most demanding applications the best choice. I2C communication using standard communication sequence, the user can directly linked to the I2C communication bus without additional wiring, simple to use. Two communication modes are used as humidity, temperature, and other digital information directly CRC checksum temperature-compensated output, users do not need to calculate the secondary digital output, and no need for temperature compensation of the humidity, temperature and humidity can be accurately information. Two communication modes are free to switch, the user can freely choose, easy to use, wide range of applications.
