HMC5883L Magnetometer

The hmc5883l allows you to use your HMC5883L triple-axis magnetometers (datasheet, Adafruit) with esphomelib. The I²C Bus is required to be set up in your configuration for this sensor to work.

Configuration variables:

  • address (Optional, int): Manually specify the i^2c address of the sensor. Defaults to 0x1E.
  • field_strength_x (Optional): The field strength in microtesla along the X-Axis. All options from Sensor and MQTT Component.
  • field_strength_y (Optional): The field strength in microtesla along the Y-Axis. All options from Sensor and MQTT Component.
  • field_strength_z (Optional): The field strength in microtesla along the Z-Axis. All options from Sensor and MQTT Component.
  • heading (Optional): The heading of the sensor in degrees. All options from Sensor and MQTT Component.
  • update_interval (Optional, Time): The interval to check the sensor. Defaults to 15s. See update_interval gotchas.
  • id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID used for code generation.
