Sensor needs 5V from Sodaq ONE

Hi there, i have a sensor that needs 5V power supply. How can I use the sodaq ONE to power this? It gets 5V input, so there must be a way to get it to the sensor too?

Hi @Herman_Stander,

The board is designed to run on 3.3V, the 5V Input (solar/usb) will go down to 3,3V.
It’s designed to also run on battery, when running on a batter there won’t be 5V. To have 5V you can use an external power supple or a booster to 5V.
The I/O lines are also 3,3V, if the sensor communicated on 5V you have to use a levelshifter there.

Hope this helps!

Best regards,
Jan
