Warning: This is a 3.3V sensor. DO NOT connect DIRECTLY to 5V system!
The I2C humidity/temperature sensor is a 5 pin CMOS device that provides accurate, reliable and fast temperature and humidity sensing in a small form factor. The only connections that are needed are SDA, SCL, VCC, and ground. The lower voltage use, coupled with the low energy dissipation makes this an ideal solution for mobile temperature/humidity sensing applications where battery life is a concern.
This product has uses in many different fields:
• Thermostats, mobile and line powered
• Respiratory therapy
• Monitoring micro-environments

Arduino example code:
Just connect this sensor to your Arduino or other microcontroller, making sure to use a 5V / 3.3V level shifter like I2C-TRN-V2
, if your controller only supplies 5V.For 5V Arduino, connect the following:
• 5V => 5V power side of level shifter (PIN8 on I2C-TRN-V2)
• GND from Arduino => GND on level shifter (PIN4 on I2C-TRN-V2); GND from Arduino => GND on I2C-HUTMP (PIN3)
• A4 on Arduino => SDA on 5V side of level shifter (PIN6 on I2C-TRN-V2)
• A5 on Arduino => SCL on 5V side of level shifter (PIN7 on I2C-TRN-V2)
• SDA on 3.3V side of level shifter (PIN3 on I2C-TRN-V2) => SDA on I2C-HUTMP (PIN2)
• SCL of 3.3V side of level shifter (PIN2 on I2C-TRN-V2) => SCL on I2C-HUTMP (PIN1)
• 3.3V output from level shifter (PIN6 on I2C-TRN-V2) => 3.3V input on I2C-HUTMP (PIN6)
