Adafruit Assembled Data Logging Shield for Arduino info
Adafruit Assembled Data Logging Shield for Arduino is a handy, dedicated and well-designed data logging shield. Not only is it easy to assemble and customize, it also comes with great documentation and libraries.
You can get going quickly - saving data to files on any FAT16 or FAT32 formatted SD card, to be read by any plotting, spreadsheet or analysis program.
The included Real Time Clock timestamps all your data with the current time, so that you know precisely what happened when!
Please note that Adafruit Assembled Data Logging Shield for Arduino does not come with an Arduino (you'll need one to use with the shield), or an SD card. It does come with the RTC battery, however. The shield now comes with all the components soldered on and tested but does not have headers installed. You'll need some basic soldering skills to put it together, but even if you don't have much experience you can get it done in under 15 minutes.
Adafruit Assembled Data Logging Shield for Arduino - General Specifications
- SD card interface works with FAT16 or FAT32 formatted cards. 3.3V level shifter circuitry prevents damage to your SD card
- Real time clock (RTC) keeps the time going even when the Arduino is unplugged. The battery backup lasts for years
- Included libraries and example code for both SD and RTC mean you can get going quickly
- Prototyping area for soldering connectors, circuitry or sensors.
- Onboard 3.3v regulator is both a reliable reference voltage and also reliably runs SD cards that require a lot of power to run
- Works with Arduino UNO, Duemilanove, Diecimila, Leonardo or ADK/Mega R3 or higher. ADK/Mega R2 or lower are not supported.
