Note: for the Pi Zero, you will need to solder some male headers to the board.

The board supports up to 4 digital sensors, and 8 analog sensors:


Analog sensors

  • plug in your analog sensor(s) onto the headers on the right side of the board. Make sure the orientation is correct (red wire of sensor should be at the top)
