Description: Arduino Sensor Shield V5.0

The Sensor Shield V5.0 fits Uno, Mega 2560 and similar form-factor Arduino boards and provides a convenient way to interface to sensors and other peripherals such as servo motors.

Features:

This shield brings out the standard Arduino I/O pins to headers along with dedicated ground and power pins per I/O to facilitate connecting sensors other devices.

The shield also has a number of dedicated connectors that are defined for specific purposes as outlined below, but they can also be considered as general purpose connection points.

An auxiliary power connector allows separate power to be supplied to the power pins associated with the D0-D13 pins which is handy for driving servo motors.

A remote reset switch is located on the shield for easy access.  It also brings the on-board pin-13 ‘L’ LED up to the shield for easy visibility.

Specifications:

Built-in Reset Button 1
Built-in LED w/ current limiting resistor 2  (Pin 13 and Power)
Board Dimensions L x W 57 x 57mm (2.25 x 2.25″)

Power System:

One of the benefits of this shield is that it brings each of the standard Arduino I/O pins out to 3-pin headers along with a dedicated Ground and Vcc pin.

The VCC pins associated with A0-A5 as well as the misc I/O connectors are all hardwired to the Arduino 5V power.  Sensors generally need as clean of power as possible, so keeping these on the Arduino 5V makes sense.

The VCC pins associated with D0-D13 are controlled by the SEL jumper.

SEL jumper installed = The Arduino 5V power is connected to these pins as well.  This mode facilitates using digital sensors and other low power I/O.

SEL jumper removed = The Arduino 5V power is removed and the power for the pins must be supplied by a separate power supply connected to the 2-pos screw terminal.  This is commonly used when servo motors are being driven so that they can be powered from a separate power supply since they exceed the current capability of the built-in 5V and the servo motors create too much electrical noise back into the Arduino electrical system.

2-Pos Screw Terminal

  • GND = Ground for separate power supplySensor Shield V5 - Power
  • VCC = Positive voltage from separate power supply.  Typically 5-6V for servos, but can be other voltage as required by the system.

Note:  With the SEL jumper installed, there must not be external power applied to the 2-pos screw terminal or damage may result since it will short the external and on-board power systems together.

Digital I/O Headers:

This group of headers simply brings out the D0 thru D13 Digital I/O lines and couples them with a dedicated ground and VCC pin.  The SEL jumper determines the power that is supplied to the VCC pins as noted above.Sensor Shield V5 - Digital IO

3 x 16 Header

  • G = Ground
  • V = Vcc (Source determined by SEL jumper)
  • 0 – 13 = Digital I/O lines D0 thru D13

Also note that AREF is brought on this line of headers.  AREF is the analog reference voltage for the Arduino ADC.

Analog I/O Headers:

This group of headers simply brings out the A0 thru A5 Analog I/O lines and couples them with a dedicated ground and VCC pin.  The analog inputs can also be used as additional digital I/O lines.Sensor Shield V5 - Analog IO

Our Evaluation Results:

Build quality on these assemblies is fair.  Headers are not always fully seated and straight but we inspect each one to make sure they are reasonably aligned.

We have found on some modules on the market that the ground pins on the LCD parallel interface and the SD card interface are not actually connected to ground due to an apparent PCB layout issue.  We inspect for this and correct these when found, but if you are using a shield from another source and have issues with those interfaces, you should double-check the ground connections and if missing you will need to jumper these pins to ground.
