Usage

To use the humidity sensor add:

File: conf/airframes/myplane.xml
  <modules>
    <load name="humid_sht_i2c.xml"/>
  </modules>


Result message

The raw data (ihumid/itemp) and the converted result (humid/temp) is written to the log file. The message is automatically sent when new data is received, it does not have to be added to the telemetry file.

File: conf/messages.xml
  <message name="SHT_I2C_STATUS" id="127">
    <field name="ihumid" type="uint16"/>
    <field name="itemp" type="uint16"/>
    <field name="humid" type="float" unit="rel_hum" format="%.2f"/>
    <field name="temp" type="float" unit="deg_celsius" format="%.2f"/>
  </message>

The sensors 64bit serial number is read out at init and transmitted every 30 seconds.

NOTES

The location of the sensor on the aircraft does matter. There are various papers that analyze the best location. So far we have installed them within tubes (to protect from sunlight/heating) on the wings. That might not be the optimum place. The SHT25 is not preferred as it does have holes on the back that allows the air to flow through.
