This is the same temperature sensor that is included in our SparkFun Inventor’s Kit. The TMP36 is a low voltage, precision centigrade temperature sensor. It provides a voltage output that is linearly proportional to the Celsius temperature. It also doesn’t require any external calibration to provide typical accuracies of ±1°C at +25°C and ±2°C over the −40°C to +125°C temperature range. We like it because it’s so easy to use: Just give the device a ground and 2.7 to 5.5 VDC and read the voltage on the Vout pin. The output voltage can be converted to temperature easily using the scale factor of 10 mV/°C.

Features:

  • Voltage Input: 2.7 V to 5.5 VDC
  • 10 mV/°C scale factor
  • ±2°C accuracy over temperature
  • ±0.5°C linearity
  • Operating Range: −40°C to +125°C

  • Rain Gauge Data Logger
  • Summary A Raspberry Pi 3B is used to collect digital counts from an electronic rain gauge (1mm of rain per reed switch closure by magnetic see-saw). It has been running without issues for over 12 months. A UPS powers the Pi so it is immune from short power glitches. The total count is displayed on an LCD screen with reset and inc/dec test buttons. “To HTML” and “To LCD” routines are also included to simp...
  • ThingSpeak temperature & pressure logger
  • This project logs temperature and pressure observations to a ThingSpeak channel using an ESP8266 WiFi module.
  • Arduino Cooking Alarm with DS18b20 Sensor
  • Today we will be making an Arduino circuit that will start playing a noise if the water (or surrounding environment) reaches a certain temperature, in our case, that temperature will be 100° Celsius. This is a useful little project that takes barely any time at all but will be extremely useful to know when your pasta is ready, or when your kettle is ready to pour some coffee. In this project, we will be showing you how...
  • Basic Weather Station
  • The aim of this project was to provide a cost effective and basic weather station for my backyard that can upload readings to Weather Underground. Part 2 of the project will be using this local data to trigger activities in and around my house.

    Excellent, reliable, easy to use temperature monitor. Apply VCC & GND, middle pin voltage represents temperature. Sense using Analog pin on micro.
    Found this to be the simplest way to monitor temperature accurately. (Posted on 16/09/2017)
