NEW PRODUCT – Dust Sensor Module Kit – GP2Y1014AU0F with Cable

This simple dust sensor is a great way to add basic particulate sensing to your next project. It’s not as fully featured as our PM2.5 I2C/UART-based sensors, with just a single analog voltage output. However, for the price, it can’t be beat! The SHARP GP2Y1014AU0F Dust Sensor Module Kit particulate sensor uses an LED to bounce off of particles suspended in the air – much like you can clearly see how dusty the air is when a sunbeam lights up your room!

This sensor has a few tradeoff’s compared to our other PM2.5 sensors:

  • You need a fast GPIO toggle to trigger the measurements, for that reason it’s only for use with Arduino or other non-interpreted languages. E.g. not for use with CircuitPython
  • You only get an analog voltage output that tells you how dusty it is – higher voltage = dustier, ranging from 0 to 0.5 mg/m3. It isn’t precise!
  • You need to power it from 5V – however the output voltage can be read by a microcontroller that’s running on 3.3V (the analog output maxes out at 3.6V)

Kit includes:

  • 1 x GP2Y1014AU0F sensor
  • 1 x 6-pin pig-tail cable for interfacing with the sensor easily
  • 1 x 150-ohm resistor
  • 1 x 220uF capacitor

To use:

  • Connect Blue wire to 5V through a 150-ohm resistor (included)
  • Connect included 220uF capacitor between 5V and ground.
  • Connect Yellow and Green wires to Ground
  • Connect White wire to a digital output (to control the LED)
  • Connect Black wire to an analog input (say A0)
  • Connect Red wire to 5V

Run our example sketch on any Arduino and open the serial monitor to read the values out.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Join 32,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
