Gertboard Update

I do not understand Newark… But this time I am not complaining! They shipped my Gertboard yesterday and it is on its way to me! I have decided that if I ever buy anything from Newark the best plan is to buy it, then forget about and do not check the ship date on their website. Just wait for an email with the confirmation or better yet wait till it shows up on my doorstep. My previous post here explains some of the problems I had when I originally submitted this order. In Newark’s defense I basically have only bought items that were in extremely high demand, but some customer contact would have been nice. Looking forward to that package arriving!

Updated BOM (Bill of Materials)

Here is a link to my previous post for everything that is required for the project. The main things that were added are numbers 10 and 11 which is a case to hold all of the power cables, and some brackets and plastic screws to hold the Raspberry Pi inside the the case. 

 

I hope to install the setup in the next week or two in a greenhouse and watch tomato plants grow for about 3 months. This will provide some great testing time, and then i will setup for a year time lapse after that. 

 

Looking forward to setting it up!
