Read DHT 11 temperature sensor and hum...

  • i try to read data from DHT 11 sensor
    my file looks like

    from machine import Pin
    from machine import UART
    import DHT
    dht_pin=Pin('G4', Pin.OPEN_DRAIN)
    temp, hum = DHT.DHT11(dht_pin)
    # temp = temp * 9 // 5 + 320   # uncomment for Fahrenheit
    temp_str = '{}.{}'.format(temp//10,temp%10)
    hum_str = '{}.{}'.format(hum//10,hum%10)
    # Print or upload it
    print(temp_str, hum_str)

    but when i do
    result is
    280.5 280.5
    but second execution
    cause halt exception

    >>> execfile('')
    280.5 280.5
    >>> execfile('')

  • I got into the same issue with this DHT11 sensor.
    I wonder if it still has to do with the threading issue as mentioned here.

    Secondly, why is the call to dht_pin(1) required?
    If I get it right, this writes a value of 1 to the pin?

    Even without any sensor connected, the code still returns a fixed 28.05.

  • Hello.

    I bought a grove sensor which contains DHT22 (now called AM2302) and i tried the code mentioned here and it does return 280.5 without crashing but nothing else. Does anyone know how to actually read the sensor data? or point me to the right direction?

    I am using a LoPy by the way.


  • Hi @livius,

    We released a new firmware with updates in stability that i think might help you with your issue, please download it at
    and follow the instructions


  • With todays firmware it does not crash :)
