  This is an example for the HTU21D-F Humidity & Temp Sensor

  Designed specifically to work with the HTU21D-F sensor from Adafruit
  ----> https://www.adafruit.com/products/1899

  These displays use I2C to communicate, 2 pins are required to
  interface
 ****************************************************/

#include <Wire.h>
#include "Adafruit_HTU21DF.h"

// Connect Vin to 3-5VDC
// Connect GND to ground
// Connect SCL to I2C clock pin (A5 on UNO)
// Connect SDA to I2C data pin (A4 on UNO)

Adafruit_HTU21DF htu = Adafruit_HTU21DF();

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.println("Robojax.com");
  Serial.println("HTU21D-F test");

  if (!htu.begin()) {
    Serial.println("Couldn't find sensor!");
    while (1);
  }
}

void loop() {
//Get the code for the course: http://robojax.com/L/?id=339  
    Serial.print(getHTU('C'));
    printDegree();
    Serial.println("C");
    
    Serial.print(getHTU('F'));
    printDegree();
    Serial.println("F");

    Serial.print(getHTU('K'));
    Serial.println("K");    
    Serial.println(" ");  

    Serial.print("Humidity:");
    Serial.print(getHTU('H'));
    Serial.println("%");
