DAE-AN009: Connecting analog sensors to DAEnetIP3 ethernet 12 relay module

This page is about how to connect analog sensors to DAEnetIP3 ethernet 12 relay module. In this way it is possible to measure different analog values like temperature, humidity, distance and control electrical device or send e-mail based on the meausred values

What is the purpose of this web page?

This article main aim is to help you in projects where a various analog sensors must be connected to the inputs of our DAEnetIP3 ethernet 12 relay module and DAEnetIP3 WiFi 12 relay module. In most of the cases, these modules can work with analog sensors like LM35DZ (temperatre), HIH-4000 humidity and so on... Some of these sensors are with linear voltage output and some of them not. In the first case, their value can be easily calculated with single equation (linearization by 2 points) and this can be easily done in the browser. In the second case, however this is not possible with this method but still such sensors can be used for triggers(to switch relay, send email). Here, we've put some example schematics how to connect such sensor to these DAEnetIP3 modules.

We have created and small MS Excel file, which can help you to calculate tasks like:

  • How to convert ADC units into sensor value (°C,m,%RH....). For example the browser showings of the ADC are in units (0-1023);
  • How to convert sensor value into ADC units. For example when you want to set the low/high threshold but you know the sensor value is °C;
  • Solve linearization by two points (which is required in software applications, where the ADC value can displayed directly in units like °C,m,%RH and so on); For example some applications require to enter sensor value in °C at 0 units and sensor value at 1024 unuts. This file will help you to solve them.
  • Create custom software application showing ADC values in units like °C,m,%RH and so on;

DAEnetIP3 ethernet relay module ADC port

The sensor must be connected to the Ethernet Module ADC port which is under the name AINPUTS (0-10)V. Its location is marked on the image bellow.

For convience, this module has as well 12VDC output and ground for sensors (on the PCB this is +VCC and GND from the "FOR SENSOR" section next to the digital inputs as shown on the image bellow)

Below are listed example schematic connections for analog output sensors to DAEnetIP3 12 Relay Module

 

Connecting LM35DZ (temperature sensor) to DAEnetIP3 12 Relay Module

 

Connecting LM35DZ (temperature sensor) to DAEnetIP3

 

  • LM35DZ can be bought from our webshop eas well - here.
  • LM35DZ is temperature sensor with linear voltage output, which can measure temperatures from 0°C up to 100°C
  • LM35DZ datasheet -  here
  • The schematic is tested with 20 meters flat cable and works well in our laboratory. However for more noisy environment and longer cabel, an extra measurements may be required which are not object of this example.
  • The power supply 12VDC for LM35DZ may be taken either from the module (FOR SENSORS -> +VCC) either from external power source;
  • The C1 capacitor is optional. It is recommend to be used if the sensor value is not constant.
  • Settings for web browser (to show directly in °C degrees):

Please note this is not so precise solution because here we have about 1 C degree per 1 ADC unit. For more precise solution you can connect several LM35DZ sensors sequentially (please refer to the LM35DZ datasheet). Or if you would like to customize your relay module to measure more precisely temperature with signle LM35DZ, please contact us before purchasing.
