Mayfly boards now available on Amazon

We are excited to announce that our Mayfly Data Logger boards are now available for purchase on Amazon!

Precision Sensor Board Update

        I have continued working on this project and found a probe cover and cable housing. By not using the back of the cable housing I’ve been able to modify a RM Young 41390 Sensor Junction Box and make a usable Pressure, Temp, Humidity device to fit inside the multi-plate radiation shields. I’ve made some changes to the board connections so that it will solder to the probe housing ...[Read More]

Introducing the new Mayfly Logger

It has a combination of features and capabilities that make it one of the most powerful and flexible logger platforms available.

Arduino DataLogger Board

Wanted to share my most recent attempt at a customized Arduino based (Mega2560) data logger board.  I’ve used a Silicon Labs CP2104 USB interface and also contains: -DS3231 RTC with Battery B/U -uSD Card -4MB MRAM (SPI interface) – 3 Serial Port Headers (3.3V/5V) **I left Serial dedicated to the USB, but Serial1, 2, and 3 are avail. -3.3V/5V I2C headers -3.3V/5V SPI headers All digital...[Read More]

Precision Sensor Board

I recently designed a board that incorporates digital pressure, temperature, and dewpoint sensors I’ve called the PTU board. I deal with weather balloon tracking systems and the information sent back from the radiosondes is usually called PTU data (Pressure, Temperature, and Humidity). I’ve written 2 new Arduino libraries for the pressure and temp and reused an existing library for the...[Read More]

16-channel data acquisition system

A few months ago I was asked by a researcher here at the Stroud Water Research Center to come up with an automated way to measure the voltage of 8 fuel cells.  The cells need to be electrically isolated from each other, so that requires differential measurements instead of the more common method of using a common ground for everything and then just doing single-ended measurements.  I looked into c...[Read More]
