Temperature Measurement for Lab and Science Projects

Introduction Every lab (home, office, school) needs temperature measurement capabilities. Measuring temperature for science experiments is hard – all sorts of materials, liquids, and chemicals may be involved or a large temperature range may need to be covered. The sensor used for this (a thermocouple) is not easy to interface, and the sensor amplifier is …

1-wire temperature sensor DS1820 at Raspberry Pi (GPIO directly)

To measure the indoor or outdoor temperature with the Raspberry Pi, there are several possibilities. This article describes the version with the minimal amount of external components. This is based on the DS18S20 temperature sensor and the software emulation of the 1-wire protocol. The DS18S20 and related DS18B20 and DS1822 are integrated circuits in a …

DIY: Temperature Monitoring and Regulation for HomeBrew

Beer brewing is a fun hobby, whether you wanna just brew something easy from a kit, or take the time to fine-tune your preferred style. With every batch, there are always two things that weigh heavy on a brewer’s mind: risk of contamination or, depending on where you live, extreme temperatures. I live in an …

Raspberry Pi reading BMP085 Temperature & Pressure

Another fun little i2c device acquired cheaply via eBay.  It reads barometric pressure and temperature.  There’s some relatively simple maths to convert the outputs to something readable. Once again, ADAFruit provide a fantastic guide and library for using the device in their Using the BMP085 with Raspberry Pi.  As in previous posts, I could have just used …

IoT 101 Project: Stream Temperature from your Raspberry Pi

“Hello World!” – This is likely the output of the first program you ever wrote when learning how to code. Setting up a device to stream temperature data is quickly becoming the de facto Internet of Things (IoT) “Hello World!” project. If printing “Hello World!” the first time was a long, frustrating task, you might …
