Air Pressure Sensor Module - MS6651

12974244432940323641An interesting product release from Sure Electronics - This module is an accurate pressure and temperature sensor which is based on the MS5561. Pressure and temperature values can be directly read via SPI or UART via an onboard PIC. This eliminates the need for complicated calculations.

The MS5561 can still be directly interfaced with if you do not want to use the onboard PIC. This is handy for obtaining calibration data or using your own MCU to perform calculations.

At the time of writing the product cost was USD $14.99.

Features:

  • Size: 33.00(L) × 28.00(W) × 12.60(H) ±0.20mm
  • Accurate air pressure sensor IC MS5561
  • PIC16F690 microprocessor 
  • 3.3V or 5V power supply
  • Pressure and temperature measurement
  • Operating pressure range: 10 to 1100mbar 
  • Operating temperature range: -40 to 85°C 
  • Support SPI and UART communication
  • Highly accurate and stable measurement
  • DIP-like packaging

Package Contents:

  • Serial Enabled Air Pressure Sensor Module ×1
  • 12-pin header ×2

If anyone has used this module or has examples interfacing with it - please share your info below!

Another interesting product to be sure (sorry, could resist the pun!).

There's a discrepancy on the product web page. The title say is has a PIC24FJ32... but the specs indicate an 16F690 which is what the photo shows. Sure is often a little slow with the documentation and there's no schematic available yet.

Assuming the micro is actually a 16F690, you could use your own code (developed with Proton) on the board. Sure is very nice in always providing a row of pads for an ICSP connector and this board is no exception.

I've always appreciated the ICSP header as well. I'm yet to stumble onto a product that is code protected, which is handy for a quick firmware back-up before tinkering!
