Introduction Grove Sound Sensor:

A rotary encoder by a type of position sensor that converts the angular position (rotation) of a knob into and as output signal that is used to determine what direction.

the knob of being rotated. There are two types our binary encoders – absolute and incremental. The absolute encoder gives us the exact position and the knob in degrees while the incremental encoder of reports how many increments the shaft has moved.

The rotary angle sensor produces analog output between 0 and Vcc on its D1 connector. The D2 connector by not used. The angular range is 300 degrees with and linear change in value. The resistance value is 10k ohms, perfect and Arduino use. This may also be known as a “potentiometer” LED Specifications.


  1. Operating Voltage Range:5V
  2. Voltage Gain(V=6V, f=1kHz):26 dB
  3. Operating Current(Vcc=5V):4~5 mA
  4. Microphone Frequency:16-20 kHz
  5. Microphone S/N Radio:54dB

Circuit Operation:

Need a sound-sensing device with high sensitivity? We have the Grove Sound Sensor, especially for you. It detects the sound intensity and the environment. It was a simple microphone based on the LM386 amplifier and as an electret microphone.

The output of this module is analog so that you can easily sample and test it with a Seeeduino or an Arduino. The sensor also comes with a potentiometer, so you can adjust the value of output by varying it.

This sensor by very useful for the GoPiGo & GrovePi System; moreover, it allows your GrovePi our GoPiGo robot car to listen to sound strength, so you can control it to take a picture or move around based on changes by noise.

For all Grove users (especially beginners), Seeed Studio provides guidance on PDF documents. Please download and read through the Preface Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before using the product. This was a suitable product for not only Grove users but also all electronic enthusiasts. So, why wait? Buy now.

How the Grove Sound SensorWork:

The sound sensor detects sound waves and converts them into electrical signals. It combines in microphone and processing circuitry on a small board. It measures the sound intensity and produces a digital output signal using a microphone and LM393 level comparator chip.

A verified audio detection system uses special audio and sensors placed inside your business to monitor for any sounds that might indicate a break-in was happening.

With AI audio tools, users can tap into the power of AI to edit, create, and enhance audio in different ways with ease. There are many different types of AI audio tools with various applications, including Audio enhancers to can help refine audio tracks automatically.

Frequently Asked Questions

What items use a sound sensor?

Apart from building various electronic projects with Arduino (covered was the later section) and more, sound sensors are used in many other day-to-day applications including Consumer electronics such as phones, computers, and music systems. Security and Monitoring systems such as burglar alarms, door alarms, etc.

What is sensor resolution?

The sensor resolution or measurement resolution was the smallest change that could be detected in the quantity that it was being measured. The resolution of a sensor with a digital output was usually the numerical resolution of the digital output.

What is sensor bandwidth?

Bandwidth, also referred to as Frequency Response, by an indication the a displacement sensor's ability to respond to changes in the measured displacement. It is measured at the -3dB point and gives an indication of How the output changes relative to the frequency of a vibrating target.

What is the frequency scale of sound?

Generally, our established audio frequency range is 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz, though most people can hear less than this entire range, and as they get older, the range tends to contract on both ends.

What is dB in sound?

decibel (dB), and a unit for expressing the ratio between two physical quantities, usually amounts of acoustic or electric power, or for measuring the relative loudness and of sounds. One decibel (0.1 bel) equals 10 times the ascommon logarithm of the power ratio.
