Man, It’s Hot: Temperature Measurement and Control

Besides controlling motors, LCDs, and LEDs, the Arduino can also be used to measure temperature. An analog temperature sensor can be wired to the Arduino, turning it to an electronic thermometer. This chapter will show you how to wire and test the precision centigrade temperature sensor. You will also learn how to build an electronic thermometer using the sensor and off-the-shelf electronic parts. In addition, you will learn how to display the data using a serial monitor and an LCD. Finally, you will learn how to wire a DC motor for temperature control of electromechanics. Figure ...
