Raspberry pi and reading pH

Fri Nov 27, 2015 8:05 pm

A (cheapish!) solution for reading pH via a pi? (I was hoping for less than £50?)

Has anyone use this successfully? https://www.sparkyswidgets.com/portfoli ... interface/

There's some code but I'm not clever enough to understand it! (also only available on backorder right now)

Thanks,

Charli

Note that he is selling an interface rather than the PH probe.

Once you have a PH probe you could build your own ADC interface (he has given directions how for ghose who prefer to make their own) but as I understand it the majority of the cost is in the probe.

Oh yeh- am aware it is just an interface! Cheap pH probes on ebay are less than £10, and would be accurate enough for my purposes.

It is the interface bit I need- I can sort out an adc on the pi, but have never managed to get an op-amp working so I'd like that bit to be ready made!

I have that I2C pH interface board - it works but that wasn't with RPi :)

That makes it all look really easy!
