What is an electronic brick? An electronic brick is an electronic module which can be assembled like Lego bricks simply by plugging in and pulling out. Compared to traditional universal boards and circuit modules assembled with various electronic components, electronic brick has standardized interfaces, plug and play, simplifying construction of prototype circuit on one’s own. There are many types of electronic bricks, and we provide more than twenty types with different functions including buttons, sensors, Bluetooth modules, etc, whose functions cover from sensor to motor drive, from Ethernet to wireless communication via Bluetooth, and so on. We will continue to add more types to meet the various needs of different projects.

DHT11 electronic brick of digital temperature & humidity sensor features a digital temperature & humidity sensor complex with a calibrated digital signal output. Its single-bus operation, extremely small size and low consumption enable it to be used in HVAC, automotive, weather stations, dehumidifier and other applications.

Code & Library:

Connect S port of electronic brick of digital temperature & humidity sensor to A0 port of Arduino board, and we will use the following program to read the temperature & humidity value. Following is the link for DHT11 library

 //Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion
 double Fahrenheit(double celsius)
   return 1.8 * celsius + 32;
 //Celsius to Kelvin conversion
 double Kelvin(double celsius)
   return celsius + 273.15;
 // dewPoint function NOAA
 // reference: http://wahiduddin.net/calc/density_algorithms.htm 
 double dewPoint(double celsius, double humidity)
   double A0= 373.15/(273.15 + celsius);
   double SUM = -7.90298 * (A0-1);
   SUM += 5.02808 * log10(A0);
   SUM += -1.3816e-7 * (pow(10, (11.344*(1-1/A0)))-1) ;
   SUM += 8.1328e-3 * (pow(10,(-3.49149*(A0-1)))-1) ;
   SUM += log10(1013.246);
   double VP = pow(10, SUM-3) * humidity;
   double T = log(VP/0.61078);   // temp var
   return (241.88 * T) / (17.558-T);

 // delta max = 0.6544 wrt dewPoint()
 // 5x faster than dewPoint()
 // reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dew_point
 double dewPointFast(double celsius, double humidity)
   double a = 17.271;
   double b = 237.7;
   double temp = (a * celsius) / (b + celsius) + log(humidity/100);
   double Td = (b * temp) / (a - temp);
   return Td;
