A power supply of between 4.9 volts and 5.1 volts (a very narrow range) must be available from a USB port for it to work.
Before connecting the sensor, you must have a multimeter:
If you measure with the multimeter on the Vin pin and see that the voltage is too high, simply find another power supply that puts out a lower voltage (you're bound to have an old one). Plug it in, and measure again.
If the voltage is too low, you can do two things:
- Find a power supply that puts out a higher voltage.
- Jumper the Schottky diode with a jumper wire (or remove it from the board and jumper it).
Note: Check if your board has a VU pin, if you use one of these to power it check the following:
There are many different NodeMCU boards with slight variations between them. There are some NodeMCU boards that have a pin marked VU.
This pin, VU, is a direct positive connection to the USB. In practice, it is like bypassing the diode.
You can use it to connect the sensor to this pin if it suits you.
