Data Sheet

Description

The “VariSen” module is the ultimate sensor extension for the Preon32 Shuttle. It contains 5 different sensors for physical parameters such as temperature, illuminance, humidity, air pressure and acceleration. The sensors can be addressed by Virtenio’s virtual machine using drivers.

Depending on the desired application, Virtenio’s VariSen can also be equipped with a variety of components. The standard assembly variant includes the sensors for temperature, relative illuminance, humidity, 3-axis acceleration and air pressure. An optional assembly variant also contains sensors for magnetic field strength and rotation speed on request.
