I want to connect 2 SHT25 to measure 2 sets of temperature and humidity at 2 different sites . How should I connect it to Raspberry Pi 3. Thanks for your help

    your can try tca9548a i2x mux module:( fr.aliexpress.com/item/32827197104.html ) – tlfong01 Jun 30 '19 at 13:56
  • thanks I ordered 2, they were available in India thinkrobotics.in at a low price, I will use and update. – VIROCON 2016 Jul 1 '19 at 7:04
  • You are welcome. From time to time I read about ThinkRobotics and visit them to catch up new products. They are impressive. Have a nice project. Cheers. – tlfong01 Jul 1 '19 at 7:11

The SHT25 has an I2C interface. Use this I2C interface to connect the sensors to the Raspberry Pi. There are many online examples, and sample code; here's two that look reasonable:

EDIT - 20190703:

As Dmitry has pointed out in the comment, you will need to overcome a limitation that's "built in" to the SHT25 chip: It has one, and only one, I2C address available. And since you indicated you wish to interface two (2) of these sensors to your RPi, this poses an additional hurdle. As I see it, you have two options to clear this hurdle:

  1. Use an I2C multiplexer device (as suggested by ttfong01 in the comments): There are a variety of resources available online to help with this if you wish to consult them (here's one example)

  2. Use a temp/humid sensor that provides at least two I2C addresses: In my opinion, this is the cleaner, simpler solution. One such sensor is the DHT31; it offers two user-selectable I2C addresses. The address is selected simply by tying the ADDR pin to logic high or low. If you need more than 2 addresses, this is also possible (refer to the data sheet for details).

    I think the question is about connecting 2 devices with the same address to a single bus. – Dmitry Grigoryev Jul 3 '19 at 9:01

    @DmitryGrigoryev: Ach! You're right... it wasn't mentioned in the OP, but the SHT25 has only a single address available. Seems a silly decision by the IC mfr, but that's only my opinion. One EDIT coming up! – Seamus Jul 3 '19 at 18:23
