Mission SammyOne

The Data Sensor



It's fun to have a device onboard which can store some environmental parameters like temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. A device like that which can record those parameters reliably at high altitude is very expensive.

I settled on a cheap Voltacraft data logger which I bought at conrad.nl. This device can record the temperature, relative humidity and barometric pressure. At only 70 grams it's worth the try. It's barometric pressure sensor is sadly only reliable at low altitudes, so I would not be able to calculate altitude with it.

It has to fly outside the capsule as I had not anticipated space for this device.
