An excellent match, Carl.

You can now very easily get Excel to remove the transient spikes and you've got yourself a nice stable magnetometer. Given the low cost, maybe you could run three at once for the X,Y & Z components ;).

Thanks Stu, yes that is certainly doable. Baby steps learning code at the minute :shock:

Hi all just a quick update on the build.
I have now connected the WIFI module to the Arduino Uno board they are now both talking.

It took over a week of putting the codes together to get them to work but I think I have cracked it😁

The live readings are now being send to THINGSPEAK

The channel is just up and running so will take a day or two to get a length of data.

If you go to the Thingspeak site then channels and type "magnetometer" into the Tag search it's there.

Should be noted that the readings are inverted but will be using a MATLAB graph soon to correct. For now it's still a test.

Regards Carl

Hi all the magnetometer readings can be seen live on the following link,
https://sites.google.com/site/iotchartsdemo/thingspeak
Just type in the channel box 438056 and change the number of points to 2000.
Last night's big hit can be seen.
Cheers Carl
