This is not just a sensor, but a digital sensor! This temperature sensor based on the DS18B20 can easily be read through the single wire interface (comparable to I2C). The probe is waterproof and has a cable of 1 meter long.
QArtCan I use this sensor as a temperature sensor in a computer? Or is the PC unable to read the sensor?ViewHide 1 answer | Answer this question
AOpencircuitIndeed, the computer cannot simply read this sensor. A microcontroller / minicomputer like the Raspberry PI can do this.
QFrankTo which GPIO pin of a Raspberry Pi could I connect the yellow wire of this sensor? Is it possible to link an example incl. Python code for this?Answer this question
QPeter NiesThere are 3 wires in the cable, what color is what ??? red black yellow ??ViewHide 1 answer | Answer this question
AOpencircuitRed = VIN, Black = GND, Yellow = data
QRoy NoordhuizenIs this only the probe or is the sensor also used in this? If in, matter of connecting and going.ViewHide 1 answer | Answer this question
AOpencircuitYes, this sensor is completely "connect-and-go" ready!
QKris WerbrouckMay the connection cable be used in a boiler. (between 100 ° C and 125 ° C)ViewHide 1 answer | Answer this question
AOpencircuitThat is probably not wise since the protection of the wires is made of plastic. In addition to that, the temperature is also at the maximum of the sensor, which influences the precision of the sensor. PT100 sensors are much more suitable for these applications and also have corresponding protection for these temperatures.
