DHT22 sensor (yours already has three lead wires soldered to it)
Sensor mount

To your right is the hole set diagram for the sensor mount.

025

Remember when we told you not to over-tighten the chassis machine screws? It’s because we’re taking the top two off to mount the sensor. Remove the top two chassis machine screws.

*Just the top two.

 

026

Now get out the DHT22 sensor and the sensor mount. You’ll know the sensor mount because it kinda looks like a Star Wars glider.

027

Lay the sensor face-down into the back of the sensor mount. The hole in the sensor will sit nicely over the peg in the sensor mount.

 

028

Now twist the wires together to make them take up less room and fit through the hole in the chassis.

029

Your sensor comes pre-bent to a 90° angle. Gently guide that bend into the open space at the bottom of the mount.

Now feed the three wires through the top center hole. If you’re confused about which hole the wires should go through, go back and take a look at the hole set diagram.

031

Pull the wire through the enclosure and the chassis.

 

032

Line up the sensor mount…

033

And screw it in with the machine screws.

 
 

034

Tighten nuts on the back of both machine screws on the sensor. This time you can tighten it for good… but remember, just snug it.

Now, how about we install that ultrasonic mister?
