I am using the GrovePi+ together with my Raspberry 2 Pi, and would like to build a small system arounf it.
However, I encounter 2 practical problems.
The Seeed sensors are very difficult to use in a practical environment because they are difficult to mount on a chassis.
As an example the light sensor is located on the same side as the connector and mounting it needs to be done outside a box and is not very elegant.
It would be for instance better to mount the resistor on a socket like the LED’s.
The same applies for the temperature sensors. If the sensor would for instance be located on the other side of the print, it would be easier to mount.
If one wants to coneect for instance a moisture sensor at a distance of 10 m, there is no practical way to do it considering the wiring.
Therefore it would be very much appreciated if one could purchase the female connectors used by Seeed separately.
I do not understand why the male on-board connectors are available and the female connectors (together with a tool to attach the cable) are not.
Now we need to purchase cables that are too short, cut then and solder another cable in between. Not elegant and the source of errors.
I appreciate any reactions or even better … solutions.
