Library for the ST LPS2x family of barometric pressure sensors


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-lps2x

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-lps2x

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .venv
source .venv/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-lps2x

Usage Example

import time
import board
import adafruit_lps2x

i2c = board.I2C()
# uncomment and comment out the line after to use with the LPS22
# lps = adafruit_lps2x.LPS22(i2c)
lps = adafruit_lps2x.LPS25(i2c)

while True:
    print("Pressure: %.2f hPa" % lps.pressure)
    print("Temperature: %.2f C" % lps.temperature)
