FIN Stack 4.0 - Graphic Builder - Equipment
With FIN 4.0, we have now introduced a brand new Graphic Builder app that is included within FIN Stack. The Graphics Builder app is entirely HTML5 and utilizes context-sensitive wizards to help the user build their graphic quicker than ever before.  Since everything in FIN Stack is context sensitive, the first thing you'll need to do is navigate down to one of the equipment you'll be creating a graphic for. Once the graphic builder is launched, a wizard will appear with pre-filled out data based on the context equipment. From there you can select template for the background, and then chose the points & components to bring in.

Adafruit SI7021Adafruit Si7021 Temperature & Humidity Sensor Breakout Board

It's summer and you're sweating and your hair's all frizzy and all you really want to know is why the weatherman said this morning that today's relative humidity would max out at a perfectly reasonable 42% when it feels more like 77%. Enter the Si7021 Temperature + Humidity Sensor - the best way to prove the weatherman wrong!  This lovely sensor for Silicon labs has ± 3% relative humidity measurements with a range of 0–80% RH, and ±0.4 °C temperature accuracy at a range of -10 to +85 °C. Great for all of your environmental sensing projects. It uses I2C for data transfer so it works with a wide range of microcontrollers. We put this nice sensor on a breakout board with a 3.3V regulator and level shifting so you can use it safely with 3.3V or 5V power & logic. There's a PTFE filter to keep the sensor clean, that's the white flat thing on top. Also comes with some pin header. Some light soldering is required to attach the header but it's easy to do.

ESP8266 BreakoutAdafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 Breakout

Add Internet to your next project with an adorable, bite-sized WiFi microcontroller, at a price you like! The ESP8266 processor from Espressif is an 80 MHz microcontroller with a full WiFi front-end (both as client and access point) and TCP/IP stack with DNS support as well. While this chip has been very popular, its also been very difficult to use. Most of the low cost modules are not breadboard friendly, don't have an onboard 500mA 3.3V regulator or level shifting, and aren't CE or FCC emitter certified....UNTIL NOW!

The Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 breakout is what we designed to make working with this chip super easy and a lot of fun. We took a certified module with an onboard antenna, and plenty of pins, and soldered it onto our designed breakout PCBs.
