The YALTIMK1 Yocto Altimeter is a Swiss-made USB altimeter : it will give you an altitude estimate based on atmospheric pressure. The Yocto Altimeter is precise enough to detect 25cm altitude changes. It will also give you the current pressure and temperature. Data can be recorded on the internal flash memory, in order to build a data history that can be retrieved later on over USB.
This circuit has been designed so that the sensor itself can be moved further away from the USB connector by a few meters: simply split the board into two parts and solder a 4-wire cable on the designated pads.
This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub Wireless-g, it can even be connected to a GSM network thanks to the YoctoHub GSM.
USB cables and enclosure to be ordered separately from YALTIMK1 Yocto Altimeter
