LPS22HB Pressure Sensor

Measure barometric air pressure and temperature from LPS22HB sensor

  • Library:
  • Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware / Sensors

  • block icon for LPS22HB Pressure Sensor

Description

The LPS22HB Pressure Sensor block measures barometric air pressure using the LPS22HB pressure sensor interfaced with the Arduino® hardware. This sensor comprises of a sensing element to measure the absolute pressure. The block also measures the temperature from the embedded temperature sensor in LPS22HB Sensor.

You can also select an output data rate in the block, and use the low pass filter option for filtering the measured pressure values.

Note

If you are using Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense hardware, which always includes an embedded sensor, reading data from a breakout board containing LPS22HB sensor is not supported.

Ports

Output

expand all

The block outputs the barometric air pressure in Pascals (Pa).

Dependencies

This output port appears only if you select the Pressure (Pa) parameter.

Data Types: double

Temperature (in ℃) measured by LPS22HB sensor connected to Arduino board.

Dependencies

This output port appears only if you select the Temperature (℃) parameter.

Data Types: double

Status of pressure and temperature measurements, specified as a 1-by-2 vector. 0 indicates that the data read is new, 1 indicates that the data read is not new, and -1 indicates that the corresponding output is not selected.

Dependencies

This output port appears only if you select the Status parameter.

Data Types: int8

Parameters

The slave addresses to communicate with the LPS22HB sensor are decided by the state of the SA0 pin on the hardware board. This table provides the slave addresses corresponding to the pin and their state.

Select this parameter to set Pressure as one of the output ports.

Select this parameter to set Temperature as one of the output ports.

Select this parameter to set Status as one of the output ports.

Select the output data rate at which pressure data is sampled, which also determines the bandwidth.

Enable the low pass filter for reading pressure values.

Select the required bandwidth of the low pass filter.

Dependencies

This parameter appears only if you select the Enable low pass filter parameter.

Specify how often this block reads the data from the LPS22HB sensor. When you set this parameter to -1, Simulink determines the best sample time for the block based on the block context within the model.
