Temperature Pt. 3: Code

Part 1: Getting Started Part 2: Hardware Part 3: Code Part 4: Reading Temperatures Temperature Pt. 3: Code In the previous post we covered assembly and wiring for our 3 channel RTD sensor so by this point you should have all of the components prepped and ready to go. The goal of the current post […]

Temperature Pt. 2: Hardware

Part 1: Getting Started Part 2: Hardware Part 3: Code Part 4: Reading Temperatures Temperature Part 2: Hardware In a previous post we covered the parts and components needed to build the 3 probe RTD project. In this post, we cover how to assemble the hardware and wire the components together. Step 1: Assemble the […]

Temperature Pt. 1: Getting Started

One of my first ventures into experimenting with temperature probes. My son Max and I built a Lego thermocouple holder as part of a warm water bath sous vide experiment. Part 1: Getting Started Part 2: Hardware Part 3: Code Part 4: Reading Temperatures Temperature Part 1: Getting Started In this post we’re going to […]

LCD Displays and the Serial Monitor

In a previous post I described the Arduino MEGA as an efficient and tiny mini computer. And like a tiny computer, the MEGA needs an equally efficient and tiny display in order to show the user what’s going on. Prerequisites Basic understanding of programing and uploading sketches to an Arduino In this post, we’re going […]
