Build an Android temperature logger with Arduino and IR temperature sensors

Being able to capture data on the move is a necessary function for quality control, environment measurement and also interesting for the curious. A great example of doing this has been demonstrated by Instructables user "drmpf" who uses an Arduino-based system with our IRtemp contactless temperature sensor and an Android device to display the data.

The system is qutie simple to construct, and you can monitor the instant and average temperatures on the Android device with an inexpensive app available on the Google Play store - which results with a neat user interface:

And if you're not looking for an Android-based interface, you'll still learn more about the IR sensor, so visit the Instructable to get started. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

An infra-red temperature sensor module? Yes - with the Freetronics IRTEMP

This module is perfect for contactless temperature measurement. It is our special version of an industrial infrared remote thermometer units with an onboard power supply, communication support and a software library and examples supplied. Very simple to use with an Arduino as we have provided a Getting Started guide and Arduino library. For more information and to order, click here

Hi there,
it is possible to measure with more than 1 IR sensor. For example I want to measure with 12 sensors simultaneously.

I´m glad to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Hi Martin, there is no reason why you couldnt measure with 12 sensors simultaneously! You would only be limited by the number of input pins on your Arduino.

Regards, Daniel
