The Tentacle shield is COMPATIBLE with all 5V-tolerant Arduinos (Uno, Mega, Yun, & many more). The Tentacle shield is not compatible with Arduinos that can’t tolerate 5V on their I/O pins (Zero, Due, etc). If you need 3.3V compatibility, the Tentacle Mini is for you.
- stack 2 shields to get 8 isolated sensor channels
- I2C and UART compatible
On-board Serial Multiplexer
With the on-board serial multiplexer you can use up to 4 circuits in UART mode per shield – using just 4 pins of your Arduino!
Stack two tentacles to get 8 serial channels.
Extra long pin headers to stack multiple tentacle (or other) shields on your Arduino hassle-free. On-Board reset-button to reset your Arduino without removing shields. Includes a mounting kit with plastic standoffs.
|• No wiring, no bread boards
|• No soldering necessary, comes fully assembled
|• Built in electrical isolation means that sensors won’t
interfere with each other, and removes outside electrical
noise that can interfere with readings.
|• Stackable design lets you control up to 8 sensors at once
|• Integrated serial multiplexer
|• Works in both UART mode, or I2C mode
|• 5V compliant Arduino only!
|• Tentacle Shield does not come with EZO™ class devices.
