Hi all, I'm going to be building a hydroponic system soon being controlled and monitored by a board (most likely beaglebone). But I need help with finding sensors and connecting them, I have literally no idea what connect tivity any boards have (rasberry pi, arduino, beaglebone/beagleboard, atmel) and if they're just USB, then finding a way to convert connections to usb. But I'll get into that later.
The sensors I need are:
Then PH and Flow rate sensors
Anyways, if anyone knows of any place to get these sensors please tell me or post a link. Also if they're not natively USB, explain a way (or post a link to an article) on how to convert the connection to usb.
Thanks to everyone that will help! This is my first project using any of the boards like beagle or arduino.
Also does anyone know of any pumps; both air and water; that can be run from one of the boards?
