New Raspberry Pi users will be looking for some interesting and easy-to-follow tutorials and one example of many is published by the University of Cambridge. One of these is setting up the hardware and software required to sense and log temperature with the digital 1-wire DS18B20 temperature sensor. Setting up is a breeze with the instructions on updating the kernel, getting the device ID and the python code all included.
To get started with your own temperature-controlled projects, consider using our TEMP: DS18B20-based temperature sensor module:
... or our HUMID: Humidity and Temperature sensor module based on the popular DHT22 sensor unit. Both modules are fully documented and easy to get started with. These are only two of over a dozen of our sensor and outputs modules.
